WASHINGTON -- Helmets to Hardhats has launched a new website to help veterans better prepare for reentry into civilian life.
Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) is a non-profit program that connects transitioning military servicemembers to quality career opportunities in the construction industry. The new website, called Good to Go (G2G) (, provides servicemembers with customizable checklists covering everything from employment and housing to goal setting for their future. The G2G checklists recommend actions servicemembers should take one year before mustering out, and further steps for nine, six, three and one month prior to discharge. Each task is designed to help returning veterans recognize and overcome common hurdles in the transition process.
G2G encourages family and friends to help their loved ones achieve success by listing specific tasks they can complete to help ensure a smooth transition. As Darrell L. Roberts, Executive Director of Helmets to Hardhats, says, "The best welcome home for a returning servicemember is a seamless transition into a quality civilian career." If you know an active servicemember - and we're sure you do! - help kick-start their life back home while they are still "over there" by visiting the G2G website, where you can:
- Download a G2G Discharge Date Countdown Clock for your Facebook page - Gain access to the G2G checklists by entering the servicemember's discharge date - Add customized tasks based on your servicemember's specific situation - Assign tasks to family and friends - Set-up email alerts to remind you about tasks that need to be completed prior to discharge
Good to Go and Helmets to Hardhats are absolutely free programs intended to provide military families with meaningful assistance in their pursuit of the American Dream.
Collectively, these organizations represent 3 million construction workers and more than 82,000 contractors nationwide. For more information about Helmets to Hardhats, visit
