Brendan Duebner – Army Veteran, Founder & CEO of Life Skills for Soldiers

“We know that when service members are more financially secure, there’s less issues at home, there’s less issues with food insecurity, stress, there’s less security clearance revocations, less missed work time. There’s more productivity, there’s more retention, there’s just more readiness.”

This is the driving force for Life Skills for Soldiers. Brendan Duebner, founder and CEO, served on active duty as an Army Artillery Officer before continuing his service in the Army Reserves. During his active duty time, he realized that the majority of problems were generated from personnel problems and finances or money played a large role. Taking this into account he worked to create classes to teach his soldiers basic financial literacy and saw a huge impact. This led to founding Life Skills for Soldiers. Brendan is continuing his service in the Army Reserve’s 75th Innovation Command. He has a passion for leveraging personal finance to better the lives of service members.

Why do thousands of merchants put us through a bootcamp to join their loyalty program? Why do they make checkout an obstacle course?

It’s embarrassing. Time consuming. Intrusive. Cumbersome. Broken.


Because no one ever built a simple & secure way to validate our veteran status at checkout.

Until now.

Want to be recognized at select merchants simply by swiping your existing Visa card?
