We connect veterans + community one story at a time

Battle Tested Veterans (BTV) is a non-profit organization that uses the power of first-person narratives to challenge veteran stereotypes and bridge the gap between transitioning military members and civilian hiring influencers. Our mission is to harness the power of storytelling to unlock opportunities for the military community at scale.

Through my story, may we both see my military service as a corporate strength and competitive advantage.



Veterans face three common stereotypes that make transitioning into the civilian space more difficult.

Veterans have a perception problem. We can change that.

Words may pack a punch, but actions make the impact. BTV will change the conversation around veterans in corporate spaces by focusing on four fronts:

  • Raising Awareness

  • In-House Events

  • Training Recruiters

  • Corporate Consulting
