CPL Whitaker...in addition to the above resources identified to support your wife's job transition, have you considered applying to start a Veteran Owned Service Disabled Company? By virtue of your service and disability status you qualify. In that way you and your wife can have some additional flexibility as you move back to the States.

Best wishes to you and your spouse.
