Transition Resources for Service Members and Military Spouses
Click Here to Sign-Up for USO Pathfinder today!

USO Pathfinder® extends the USO experience to service members and military spouses transitioning from the military as they settle into their new communities, as well as for military spouses at any point in their military journey as they transition from one installation to the next.

The USO Pathfinder program’s one-of-a-kind approach includes:

  • Personalized service – The USO Pathfinder mission is delivered by Scouts, USO staff who have a deep knowledge of and connection to the vast ecosystem of services and opportunities available to transitioning service members and military spouses. Scouts work one-on-one with individuals to create an Action Plan - a customized road map that helps individuals stay on track and get connected with the best resources for them throughout their transition.

  • Continuity of Care – Scouts support service and family members 12 months before their transition and ensure continuity of care by extending support up to 12 months beyond the service member’s date of separation. Scouts also support military spouses throughout the many transitions they face during their family’s time in service. Scouts connect individuals to resources and opportunities at their current duty station before they separate, as well as to resources where they choose to call home, regardless of where that may be.

  • A Holistic Approach – Transition impacts every aspect of a service member and military family’s life. Scouts provide support in the following focus areas: employment, education, financial readiness, veterans benefits, housing, legal, family strength & wellness, and volunteerism.

  • A Nationwide Network of Networks – The USO Pathfinder program works with best-in-class public and private resources across the nation that offer relevant services to transitioning service members and military spouses. Scouts inform, prepare, and connect individuals with the local, national, in-person and virtual resources that are the best-fit for them based on their specific timeline, location and goals.

  • Powerful Technology – The USO’s digital Action Plan puts comprehensive transition services into the hands of service members and military spouses. Individuals can view their action plan, complete tasks, create tasks, and connect with their Scout in real time, all through their mobile device.
