Thinking differently

There are more than 40,000 nonprofits in the U.S. dedicated to veterans – most focus on helping vets instead of challenging and empowering them.


Change the conversation

Let’s expand the conversation about veterans to include how we refocus their commitment, values, intelligence and diversity in our communities

Battle tested is meant to highlight how veterans are the heroes and heroines of their own unique stories, celebrating the resilience, courage, and diversity.
