This article reports on the founder of Military.com, a company focused on connecting service members, veterans, and their families to the benefits earned while in the service. He is a former naval flight officer and a member of the Naval Institute board of directors. He is the last remaining drilling reservist from his class and, despite loving the Navy, is seriously considering leaving the service. He is the chief operating officer of a fast-growing technology company, and is finding it increasingly difficult to meet the significant operational demands required by today's selected reservist.
