Brandon Childers enlisted in the Marine Corps as a 17 year old from a small town in Georgia. During his time in service, he deployed to Afghanistan as a Huey crew chief (mechanic/gunner) and participated in hundreds of combat sorties.
When his enlistment ended in 2015, he used the GI bill to become the first veteran to earn a Masters degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Southern California. During his time on campus, he realized the most common link to the social issues he and his peers were working so hard to solve - Debt.
Equipped with his hard earned combat experience and advanced degree in human behavior, Brandon founded Freelance Corporal - a gamified financial fitness app for junior service members.
Today, Brandon is a:
Stay at home dad to his daughter, Layla,
Loving husband to his wife, Lauren, and a
Hard working start-up founder, building software in the garage of his California home.
