Typical Transition Assistance Programs (TAP) claim to prepare our nation’s heroes for life after uniform.
TAP puts our military famliy and their hero at a DIS-advantage.
We call them TAP traps.
The Commissioned Officer’s Guide (COG) exists to give our nation’s military family the total ADVANTAGE.
As The COG, using the Liberty Accelerator transition superhighway structure, we guide to proactive, intentional, and informed planning for Life and Liberty during uniformed service and in preparation for far, far beyond!
Jarrod H. Smith, The Commissioned Officer’s Guide, welcomes you to a time-saving resource that equips YOU with an ADVANTAGE!
Transition Acceleration Project Solutions (ταρς™) is our answer to the government-run status quo, check the block “military transition” program trap.
ταρς™ enables planning smarter, not harder, for the inevitable “Liberty Mission,” and more importantly, to WIN the Liberty Battle!
This offering is a military family’s transition superhighway to making the most out of uniformed service and planning effectively for Life and Liberty far, far beyond.
Check out our “readiness resources” below!
Identify priorities regarding your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
We’ll provide guidance on how to navigate things like military medical care and preparing for the VA disability claims process.
Status of Self
Discover your “why,” develop your brand, and embrace your value as an individual much sooner than what the prescribed transition timeline recommends. Find your purpose, know who you are and what you desire to become beyond your rank, weapons platform, and service branch. This positions you for immediate and long-term success! We’ll show you how to use the systems you serve within to your (and your people’s) advantage.
Increase your wealth and learn how to identify exposed flanks.
We’ll help you learn how to navigate income tax mitigation, gain a better understanding of life insurance and provide guidance on how to decrease your expenses and increase your cash flow. Most importantly, we’ll focus on your greatest asset and most limited commodity - your TIME!
We empower you to build and strengthen healthy personal and professional relationships. We believe relationships provide the sure foundation upon which a successful future is built. You’ll have immediate access to the support you need. No GS 9-5 limitations here!
“As the Commissioned Officer’s Guide, I’m here to share my failures, our successes, and what I learned the hard way, with you. The prescribed approach for “transitioning into society” following military service doesn’t work well for many of our nation’s military families and their heroes, so I’ve developed an alternative, personalized approach that sets you up for success, putting you and your family first. I want to equip you with the ADVANTAGE!
We’ll focus on “big T” - your inevitable Transition back into the democratic republic you defend, which is different from the culture you serve in. We also address “little t” transition - every small change between now and when you leave the Armed Forces. “Little t” includes everything from duty station relocations to job changes within each command assignment, and between commands. I’ll lay it all out for you in our Liberty Accelerator Program.
You won’t get lost. You’ll be empowered to make the most of life in uniformed service, and far, far beyond.”
