Former infantry soldier Shannon French has transitioned from full-time grunt to Coffee Harvester / Roaster and now Cafe Owner. Transitions focuses on Australian veterans post-service that have gone on to be successful in their chosen paths.
Far too often the general public perceives veterans as somewhat damaged and war-fatigued, unable to hold down regular jobs or assimilate into regular life. The purpose of these episodes is to shine a light on some of the success stories and show the public that ex-servicemen and women are skilled, professional and highly employable (across many fields).
It also serves as a message to veterans that although your military career is a major part of your life, it doesn’t have to define you.
