Our work in the Wounded Warrior Battalion at JBLM assisting military personnel move through the medical evaluation board and transition into civilian life has proven to speed the process for services men and women to obtain work in our community.

Providing employment opportunities for transitioning service members

Camo2Commerce is all about providing opportunities for career development and jobs to service members transitioning out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord into civilian life in western Washington. The program offers a number of customized services to transitioning service members, including one-on-one career coaching, job placement services, short-term training, hiring fairs and more. Camo2Commerce works to fully integrate the public workforce system into the transition services provided on military installations. The goal is to enable transitioning service members to seamlessly shift into the civilian workforce, and specifically into high-demand career opportunities.
