Veterans and Military Spouses

Home / Veterans and Military Spouses


If you are you a U.S. Military Veteran, still serving, or Military Spouse looking for an experienced career search coach, then this is the right page for you!

Gunny McGown says Welcome Home at GunnyRet Consulting, where job search coaching and referral services for Veterans and their spouses or (widows/widowers) are provided.

Am I eligible for your Services? 

If you took the oath of enlistment, or oath of office, and completed recruit training or Officer Candidate School for the United States Armed Forces, and later received an honorable discharge or general under honorable conditions type separation, then you are eligible to receive my job coaching and career search assistance with verification required.

As a Veteran or military spouse, you owe it to yourself and your family to connect to others who will help you and inspire you as you look for new employment.

Whether you are just starting your transition, or you have long since hung up your dress blues, there are many Veterans who are willing to help you make the most of your military skills and those intangible qualities that employers want in their workforce.

There is no reason an unemployed Veteran or spouse needs to feel like they have no job search support.

My experience as a Retired active duty Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, state welfare caseworker, county government employee, military job fair and military events manager, and non-profit volunteer and leader, will serve you well!
