Reintegration Action Plan (RAP)

This booklet is a powerful tool that will equip you to navigate through hurdles - give you pride in what you have done - and help you to accomplish a full return home. This tool, the Reintegration Action Plan (RAP), is your plan of action for returning home and to civilian life. The better you understand the readjustment process and develop an action plan to deal with obstacles, the easier will be your return.
