Take a moment to reflect on a past major life transition. How have you navigated the shift from one major life chapter to another, and what lessons have you learned? For Chef Jimmy Francis, he reflects on the parallels between his military service and his current career, such as the importance of preparation and organization.

After retiring from the US Air Force in 2014, little did he know that his deployments to various countries would influence his cooking style and new career as a chef. He shares his journey from starting a meal delivery company with his sister, to his passion for cooking directly for clients, leading him to start his own business, Flights by Jimmy. Overall, Chef Jimmy's shift from military life to culinary arts highlights how military retirees can find a sense of purpose post-service.
