Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 6:59pm

Fort Bliss is celebrating the success of a program on post that helps soldiers transition home from deployment.

A new federal law requires Army National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers to attend the Veteran's Opportunity to Work/Transition Assistance Program, VOW/TAP.  It is a five day transition program that is part of the 14-day demobilization process.

Soldiers receive information about continuing education, Veteran's Affairs and also receive training on how to build a strong resume.

Since the training started at Fort Bliss, 294 soldiers have received the training and 246 are employed.
