A great resource to Veterans is on LinkedIn called; Veteran Mentor Network. If you join that group, you can also ask the question there. There are 136k people in the group. Here's the link: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4466143/
I would check out what Facebook is offering and see if its a good fit for you.
Also, Palo Alto Networks offers some training in the field.
I would suggest looking at this article by Comparitech about finding your first job in cybersecurity (linked below). It highlights common cybersecurity jobs, how to get into the industry, possible scholarships for further cyber education, and networking within the industry.
Best of luck!
Join IEEE or ACM (you get an Associate's Membership for which you pay) and most definitely join Linkedin (which is a free website).
I'm not the best in the Cyber industry, but I can say finding jobs is similar in most industries. You need to meet people.
I would suggest finding a local Toastmasters, Chambers group, Cyber group, etc and join as many as you can. Meet people and try to help them. You will eventually find the right person and they may be able to connect you to the right opportunity.
I hope this helps.
