E-mail Print PDF, a partner of The American Legion, has released a new, personality-assessment based version of its popular Military Skills Translator to help veterans better understand their qualifications and what career fields may best match their interests and skill sets.

The Military Skills Translator is designed to allow job seekers and recruiters to directly translate military experience and skills into civilian terminology.

Military Skills Translator + Personality Assessment was developed using existing military skills information and blending that with technology developed by Traitify to go beyond skills translation and incorporate personality testing. The Traitify Career Discovery tool gives job seekers tailored recommendations on which career fields are best suited to their personalities.

After the servicemember or veteran completes the test, the Traitify results are paired with the Translator’s existing database of primary, secondary and tertiary skills sets related to military occupational codes. Veterans then see relevant career results and available jobs within those industries.

Visitors to can find a link to the Military Skills Translator in the Job Search Tool Kit on the Careers page,

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
