Veteran Benefits Guide Donates $10,000 to Support U.S. Navy SEAL & SWCC Veterans

Funding Will Support Transitioning Service Members and Their Families Through The Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans (501(c)(3) non-profit

Las Vegas (February 1, 2024) – Veteran Benefits Guide (VBG), which helps Veterans across the U.S. navigate the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) disability compensation benefits process, today announced that it has donated $10,000 to The Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans (501(c)(3) non-profit.  

The donation will go directly towards advancing The Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans’ mission of empowering transitioning service members through education, follow-on educational support and a means to stay connected, regardless of when they served. The Foundation’s instructive efforts help ensure America’s heroes have a successful transition into the civilian world and include mentorship initiatives tailored to each Veteran’s individual journey. Primary focus is educational programs to guide Veterans for employment in federal, state and municipality careers, large defense contracting companies or starting their own small business. Additional direction is to obtain education for themselves and their families from their GI Bill and Veterans Administration (VA) Benefits.    

“We are proud to support the incredible work that Mike Johnson and his team at The Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans do to help service members and their families successfully make the transition from active duty to civilian life,” said Josh Smith, CEO of Veteran Benefits Guide. “The Foundation’s efforts are fully aligned with VBG’s own mission of honoring service and empowering Veterans.”

 "We are humbled to have received such a generous donation from Veteran Benefits Guide, ”said Mike Johnson, Chairman, CWO-3 SEAL/SWCC (ret).  “VBG’s contribution will support our programs for SEAL & SWCC Veterans and their families.”    

Headquartered in Las Vegas, with an additional office in San Diego, VBG’s workforce has grown to about 200 employees since the company was founded in 2015. VBG’s expertise has enabled the company to help 35,000 Veterans nationally receive an average increase in annual disability benefits of $15,600 -- benefits they likely would not have received without VBG’s support.
