Report on the Conference on the Separating Serviceman Held at the National War College, 29-31 October 1969.
Department of Defense, Washington, DC.
This conference enabled operators of training programs for separating servicemen to "talk shop" among themselves and with outside supporting agencies and organizations, both public and private. Panel discussions and speeches dealt with such matters as local administration of the TRANSITION Program; counseling and placement (including the planned REFERRAL computerized job referral service for military retirees); national assistance for veterans; major separation activities for overseas returnees; industry sponsored TRANSITION training; programs under the Manpower Development and Training Act; university extension and other educational programs for TRANSITION; training for public service careers; and ways of reaching disabled, disadvantaged, and minority group servicemen. Special attention to improved availability of training resources, trainee selection, program evaluation, scheduling, and working relationships with outside training sponsors, was advised. (An agenda and participant roster are included.) (ly)
