Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is John Lee Dumas.
John was commissioned as an officer in the Army when he graduated from Providence College. He was a part of the first class commissioned after the 9/11 attacks.
He served as an Armor Platoon Leader during a 13-month tour in Iraq. John served a total of eight years from 2002 to 2010.
After leaving the military, John struggled to find his passion. He tried law school, corporate work, tech start-up companies, and even real estate.
Finally, in 2012, John launched the popular Entrepreneur On Fire podcast.
Thank you for your service, John!
