Clint Bruce Joins America's Warrior Partnership Board of Directors

National veteran-serving nonprofit announces the appointment of Clint Bruce to its board of directors

Clint Bruce is the co-founder and CEO of Trident Response Group, a global intelligence and advisory group based in Dallas. He is also the founder of HoldFast, a military veteran-led speaker’s bureau that provides organizations with proven speakers to educate and inspire their workforces. As a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and former Navy SEAL, Bruce is dedicated to helping veterans and entrepreneurs develop the skills and expertise they need to accomplish their goals.

“A focus of my post-military career has been helping veterans transition their experiences into skills and leadership opportunities valued by the private sector. It is natural to join America’s Warrior Partnership – they’ve made a meaningful impact by empowering communities to accomplish this goal on a broader scale,” said Bruce. “One of the things I valued most about serving in the Navy was being a part of something greater than myself. Joining America’s Warrior Partnership provides an opportunity to continue contributing to a worthwhile cause. I look forward to working with the team as we guide communities across the country in helping veterans thrive as civilians.”

Bruce previously served as the co-founder and chairman of Carry The Load, a nonprofit dedicated to providing communities with an active way to honor the sacrifices made by military veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, rescue personnel and their families. The organization raises funds for partnering nonprofits to provide direct services to veterans and their families.

“Clint brings a ‘team sports’ mentality to everything he does, which is a perfect fit for our approach of empowering local organizations with the tools, insight and support they need to proactively and holistically serve veterans in their communities,” said Jim Lorraine, president and CEO of America’s Warrior Partnership. “His passion will no doubt inspire our team and our partners as we continue working together to accomplish our mission.”

America’s Warrior Partnership’s mission is to empower communities to empower veterans. The organization’s approach centers around its Community Integration service model, which is active in nine communities across the country and has served more than 44,500 veterans since 2014. The service model provides veteran-serving organizations with the tools and support to implement a customized program that is responsive to the needs of local veterans, their families and caregivers. The result is a proactive, holistic approach that amplifies the efforts of community organizations and bridges the gaps between local programs and national resources, which ultimately ensures every veteran receives the support they need.
