#YearOfTheVet is a project created by me, Robert Graves; 10-year Marine Corps Vet and author of “How to Grow a Beard: A Military Transition Guide Back into Civilian Life“—with the sole intention to introduce and share the stories of veterans around the globe who can add value to the veterans who are walking the same transitional path that they once walked.

The mission of #YearOfTheVet is to introduce and showcase veterans from all corners of the vocational world, as well as those with extraordinary hobbies… and even some who just simply have fantastic and motivating stories.

From it, we share what is possible to those out there who 1) don’t understand the world of veterans, 2) don’t know the potential of the value of being a vet, and 3) maybe struggling in the process of transitioning as a vet.



To the Veterans visiting this site, I ask that you remember that—We are the trailblazers! of transitional knowledge We STILL have an obligation to lead, teach, and maintain troop welfare—Even after the service!  You can do so by simply sharing this project, and let our next generation know they don’t have to learn the mistakes on their own!


I’m looking for veterans from all backgrounds, who have lessons to share from their own personal transition… Good or Bad.


If you feel that you, or someone you know has something to bring to the table that others could use in their life to help ease their own transition process… I Invite you to share your story by clicking →  #YearOfTheVet
