Get your resume' together and start job hunting. Actually, I hope you've already started networking. If you have enough time left in, get all your dental issues fixed before you get out. And start a VA claim. That's all I got. :)

Thanks! I've gotten a lot of job offers already but they won't wait for me to her there! I have no idea when I am getting out yet. Posted my résumé on lots of sites.

Apply to a reserve post first thing to see if they have any part time job openings. Then apply to the VA.

What do you mean a reserve post?

I believe she means the Army Reserve. You might be able to directly transfer to active Reserve, depending on your career field. Try talking to Army recruiters in the area you plan to move to. They might know of local resources, and potentially bring you in TDY, before you are discharged to do recruiting. That way you could also interview for jobs and look for a place to live. Good luck.
