City announces fellowship program to help transitioning Fort Bliss soldiers

Military

Transitioning from the military to civilian life can be a difficult adjustment for many soldiers. That’s why the City of El Paso is creating a new program to make the process a little bit easier.

Mayor Dee Margo, City Manager Tommy Gonzalez, and other city officials unveiled “The Bridge: A Fellowship for Transitioning Soldiers” at Fort Bliss Thursday morning.

“It gives soliders an opportunity to connect in areas they’re passionate about, it gives them the ability to be able to meet executives from across the city,” Colonel (Ret) Cary Westin, the Deputy City Manager, said.

Officials say the program highlights the city and county’s ongoing partnership with Fort Bliss.

“It means a lot to me having an opportunity…to be able to get invested in the community,” SGM Rajon Robinson, a fellow of the program, said.
