POS Rep Veteran Based Startup/Social Network

POS rep is a veteran based startup located in Los Angeles, California that provides a social network for veterans. In the United States we have over 22 million veterans and a majority of them have a hard time transcending back to the civilian life after their terms.  POS REP Co-Founder Jake Wood and Anthony Allman decided to build a social network startup for veterans to connect with each other. Every year there are more veterans suiciding than veterans dying in combat.

Their Story

Co-Founder Jake Wood didn’t just decide to build POS rep out of nowhere. The inspiration for POS REP is Sgt Clay Hunt, USMC (1982-2011). Clay Hunt served in the Marine Corps with POS REP Co-Founder Jake Wood and deployed in the same section to both Iraq and Afghanistan. Clay returned to civilian life deeply scarred with the mental and emotional wounds of war, and as a result, served as a leading national advocate for veterans with PTSD.
