... sets you apart from other Veteran Support Organizations!


by Justin Pearson | Proper Patriot | Founder & CEO


Well for starters, you have one of the most bad-to-the-bone elite starting squads of 50+ volunteer advocates that any veteran support organization could dream of! They do it because they believe in making a difference. They do it to #payitforward. They do it simply for you!

VETS2INDUSTRY professionals are vetted and dedicated to the success of our military families! If you send them a message, there's a 99% chance you'll even get a response. Wow! Would you look at that!! Go ahead and re-read that sentence!!!

The professionals below are part of the elite, whom I would fully agree with having the associated title of "veteran advocate" or "military spouse advocate." Thank you to each of you, for spending countless hours in support of making a difference in the lives of those that serve(d) or those who support(ed), that's me included!

Each of you, give hope and provide a beacon of light that ALL veterans and military spouses are in search of. Again, Thank You!

If you're still reading this ... this is where I fully expect you to stop what your doing, right now and click on the names of each of these amazing professionals and ensure that you are connected to or following them. It's that important!
