Our Story

Founded in 2014 by US Army Combat Veteran MAJ Vince Leone in Arlington, TX, VetStarts arose from Vince's personal battle for purpose after returning from Desert Storm. Struggling with PTSD, physical limitations, and alcohol, Vince found his calling through the Halftime Institute, transforming his life.

 

Determined to help other veterans find their purpose, he created VetStarts.

VetStarts' Flagship Program, Halftime for Veterans, is a lifeline for veterans, offering strengths-based identity training, new mission crafting, vision building, and actionable plans for lasting significance. This program, alongside coaching services, has inspired over 140 veteran-owned businesses and prevented 62 suicide attempts to date.

When Vince suddenly passed away, his daughter Anna passionately stepped in to continue his legacy. She vowed to provide hope and a plan for the future for our brave veterans. For over a decade, VetStarts has pierced the darkness of veteran suicide, transforming lives one veteran, one family, one day at a time.
