Logan - and to anyone else who is transitioning out and wanting to improve their resume. There is really no need to write how you were responsible for $250k worth of equipment or personally responsible for 3 soldiers. Really you were professionally responsible and no one really cares about the dollar amount of the equipment. Also do not sanitize your resume so much that you take your rank completely out of it. I had to write 3 emails to a guy to pull out of him what his rank was in the military. He was applying for a executive opening and referred to his military rank time as a program manager. I really thought his résumé was a little inflated but was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. It turned out to be very inflated. He would have better served himself to just accurately tell me what he had done.
