Lots of very specific advice for Veterans on a dedicated page at 212-Careers.com The key to "how to start" is: "In your most recent position (assignment) what was your most specific accomplishment? Answers should be specific, measurable, etc. Listing "duties" what you did is wrong -- what you accomplished, "results" is key.

When trying to get a job, your resume is your 'sales brochure', so to speak. It is your key to getting to the next step, which is an interview. Put the time into developing a great resume, and you will be able to use it for the rest of your career. Don't get me wrong, it is not static, rather it is very dynamic. Every time you get more experience, awards, training or skills, they can go on your next resume. You will need your resume until you retire!
I put together a really good document for vets to create a great civilianized resume. Please message me requesting it, and I will be glad to share it with you. It walks you through the steps to create very flexible, compelling resumes.
To your exact question. If you are looking for a form, there are many forms on the internet to use as a boiler plate for a nice resume. Resumes are not rocket science and there is no perfect format. It should be clean, concise and focused on your skills, experience, training, accomplishments, etc.
Other documents that help with resume creation are status reports, documents you have written, performance evaluations, etc. Let me explain. Status reports are fantastic for reminding you of all the projects, tasks, hurdles, accomplishments, etc that you have faced and overcome. Performance evaluations are useful in a similar way, but they also may give you material to put in the resume. For example, maybe your commander said "Lawrence quickly organized the team, and accomplished the task way ahead of schedule.". Additionally, project reports may remind you of experiences or problems you solved.
Hope these ideas help and many thanks for your service.

Under the resumes section are links to LinkedIn's resume builder that shows how to translate your LinkedIn profile to a base resume:
IMHO as described in the mentoring section,
you should first go to the BLS.gov to search for your dream career:
Then do job searches using keywords related to that career.
Examine the advertised requirements, and then, for each job, create a resume version that highlights training & experience that satisfies those requirements.
Your LinkedIn Profile appears strong to me, but if your dream job demands it,
Add training if necessary to satisfy the requirements.
