United States Marines
Rob Dyer is an active duty Marine Corps aviation officer, a highly decorated combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and an entrepreneur. Rob and his team of Special Ops Marines came up with the idea for a nutrition product, RuckPack, that offers vitamins and energy without caffeine. He founded the company and created the product with his fellow Marines and has committed to hiring veterans and active duty military. In addition, he is giving 10 percent of company profits to military charities. RuckPack has already donated $5,000 to the MARSOC Foundation, $7,000 to the Navy SEAL Foundation, $3,000 to the Semper Fi Fund and $1,000 total to Wounded Warriors. Rob now lives in Annapolis, Md., and is stationed at the U.S. Naval Academy, where he teaches accounting, basic economics and terrorist financing (a course he introduced to the school).
