On the to show with Herb Thompson.

Herb had a successful military career in which became the only person ever to earn the Green Beret and Army Drill Sergeant of the Year award. Finishing up his military career he had doubts about leaving the military and becoming a civilian. The Army was the only thing he knew since enlisting at the age of 17.

Like most veterans, the transition process was not easy for him, and he had bad days filled with self-doubt. However, after over 2,000 informational interviews, thousands of hours of internet research, and hundreds of hours of personal reflection, he found his way. He landed a job at a top-tier Management Consulting firm and a seat in the Executive MBA program at Cornell University. In his free time, Herb has mentored hundreds of transitioning service members.


Herb wrote the very popular book The Mission Transition. This book is for military members who are transitioning into the civilian world, maybe now and in the future.

This book is not a checklist to follow for a soft landing upon exiting the military. There is no possible checklist, every service member’s situation is unique. What Herb has done is lay out a different approach and way of thinking for the transition. Instead of teaching you what to think he opens your eyes with how to think about the transition.

Herb doesn’t sugar coat the process but reveals his failures in transition and demonstrates vulnerability with personal anecdotes from hanging up his uniform. The reality of transition. The hard questions you need to answer. Techniques to be successful. Ways to succeed and others destined for failure.

Herb is also an ambassador of Green Marines.

The Green Marines believe we need stop relying on the Government and corporations to make changes on our behalf. We need to stand up and take account of our own actions, our own choices. Be responsible for our own future and make changes from the base up. This is a generation where the peoples voice is stronger than ever, and we have the potential to make real changes that matter.

The Green Marines welcome everyone and celebrate them at their best. We help others get out and reconnect with the planet one micro mission at a time.

The Green Marines provide inspiration, aspiration and education all in one place.
We advocate and encourage positive solutions to modern life.
We believe in small, impactful action and that small steps aggregate to make global change.

The Green Marines provide micro solutions from across a diverse community of advocates.
We don’t preach or push green values.
We don't attempt to create change by shouting, blaming, or indicting the actions of others.

The Green Marines are not haters, we are the positive media.
We build a community with a common goal and drive to make life better, not in a ‘hold hands
around a tree’ kind of way but through micro action, adventure and respect for the environment.
We don't talk about all going off grid tomorrow.

We advocate bending the current trend away from anonymity and back towards a positive future.

Such an amazing individual
