The After Action Review

Every Veteran business owner has a unique story to tell about their journey through entrepreneurship. Those stories can help inspire, educate, and motivate other Veterans who are either in the middle of their own journey or considering starting one. The After Action Review Podcast (The AAR Podcast) serves as a vehicle to create, promote, and support a network of Veteran entrepreneurs by capturing and sharing their stories with the Veteran community.

The AAR Podcast, is an audio and video podcast for Military and Veteran entrepreneurs, business owners, artists, and non profit organizations. We promote entrepreneurship and Veteran products, business, and service.


The After Action Review (AAR) is all about Veteran entrepreneurs!

These Veterans are making their mark on the world by taking a chance at owning their own business or running a non-profit for some terrific causes. They share their experiences and lessons learned from the military and how they're bringing all of that to their entrepreneurial endeavors. These are their stories, from military service to entrepreneurship.
