Two of them, Mike Slagh and Steve Weiner, founded VetTechTrek, which has connected veterans with careers at companies including Google and Facebook. Joe Solosky is now simultaneously attacking his MBA at Duke University while working at Sportradar AG in Germany following his six-year career with the FBI.
