I’ve known Justin Brown for a couple years now and one thing I’ve always admired about him is how many people know who he is and know of his efforts. Justin founded HillVets with the intent to bring more Veterans to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.. Justin believes Veterans can contribute greatly to our government and that they should take advantage of those opportunities. Justin swung by our central office and chatted with us about service, transition, HillVets, and more.

About Justin:

He has been fighting on behalf of Veterans and their families, trying to increase educational and employment opportunities, while expanding access to benefits and healthcare. Justin began his commitment to public service at the age of 17 when he enlisted in the United States Navy. There, he completed one deployment in support of Operation Southern Watch and two deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Following Justin’s service, he attended the University of Utah, graduating with dual bachelor’s degrees in three years.

    Be honest.

    Definitely moved by the photos above, but why can’t VFW assist more for Veterans than giving high salaries for Administrators. That is something that the DAV commits to first helping those who served and now are too often in limitation and pain.
