To provide the most helpful content, strategy, and actionable guidance for veterans in their transitions after the military.



SuccessVets was started to help veterans with their transition into new careers after the military.

I left the Marine Corps in June of 2013. Leading up to that point, I thought I was more than ready. I was leaving with fond memories and great friends. I had the support of family and veterans' groups. I had completed the best training in the world and had successfully applied it in the toughest environments. So why was this still so hard? Leaving my previous life in the military was one of the most challenging things that I've had to do. And it didn't feel like it had to be that way. When I took my first steps into civilian life, everything seemed uncertain and new. I was able to get on my feet quickly because of the help of other veterans, and that's why I started this site. I felt that I could bring together insights and advice from other who had successfully made the transition. The bond I feel with America's service members is just as strong as when I was on active duty. I hope that I can continue to contribute and serve them through the resources, interviews, and connections that I put together here.
