BreakLine is by far the BEST transitioning program for veterans. The ability to visit, network, and connect with so many top tech companies, CEOs, and venture capitalists in such a short time span is so valuable and something you won't find anywhere else. The program is also FUN! It's always great to connect with similar minded veterans.
