Your Grateful Nation

Who We Are

Your Grateful Nation (YGN) is a non-profit organization committed to transitioning Special Operations veterans into their next successful career.

YGN was created by a group of industry leaders and veterans committed to providing support, guidance, and a clear roadmap for our military heroes as they enter the next phase of their lives.

We believe those who have risked their lives for our country’s freedom deserve our support when they transition into civilian life. YGN offers a variety of services to make the transition from the “battlefield to the boardroom” a great experience.

The Issue

Companies don’t realize the positive impact a Special Operations veteran can have within their organizations; Special Operations veterans don’t realize the immediate value they bring to the companies they join. Special Operations vets face unique challenges when transitioning from military service to civilian life, and adjustments are required. We build awareness around the challenges these vets face when transitioning into corporate careers, and work closely with Special Operations veterans in their transition. Ultimately, we are also helping great companies succeed by connecting them with the extraordinary talent who can impact their businesses.

The Opportunity

Special Operations veterans are excellent candidates for corporate jobs because they are passionate, loyal, and disciplined team members. They are proven, quick-thinking leaders who have an immediate impact on the teams they join. Their unique experience has prepared them to adapt to new environments and affect change. Companies are looking for candidates who are results-oriented and know how to win; Special Operations veterans are looking for their next successful career.

The Solution

Your Grateful Nation has developed a transition process to prepare our heroes to succeed in corporate America. Our program matches the right candidates with the companies that will be best served by their highly-desirable, transferable skills. Smart companies will quickly recognize the tremendous value Special Operations veterans add to their organizations. As a result, they’ll want to hire more of these extraordinary individuals through YGN.
