Eric Greitens, one of the most remarkable young men I have ever encountered, founded and runs The Mission Continues, which supports veterans and their families.
Veterans face a daunting environment as they return to civilian life after heroic service to our country. A Rhodes scholar and humanitarian volunteer, Eric figured out how to provide transition services that fill the gaps between the Pentagon, the VA and local communities. And he has highlighted the enormous potential of our returning veterans, who offer such valuable skills to our workplaces and communities.
A former Navy SEAL wounded in war, Eric combines the ethos of sacrifice and service with a passion for helping people. He has a clear and inspirational vision of a better future and a keen sense of how to achieve it. He will be leading for a long time to come.
