Who We Are

The purpose of the Transition Assistance Advisor (T AA) program is to provide a professional in each state/territory (some states have two TMs) to serve as the statewide point of contact to assist Servicemembers In accessing Veterans Affairs' health care services and benefits. Each TM also provides assistance in obtaining entitlements through the Military Health System and
access to community resources. The TM initiative started in May 2005 when the National Guard Bureau (NGB) signed a
Memorandum of Agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs 0/A). The TM program is staffed by 60 contract positions
and four federal technicians.
