A New Mission


Jon and Chris Boggiano are brothers, West Point graduates, and veterans of the Iraq war. They served during the battle of Fallujah and saw some terrible things. They say many of their friends and fellow soldiers have struggled to find meaning and purpose after the intensity and camaraderie they experienced in combat. 

Jon and Chris consider themselves lucky. They're entrepreneurs who have started their own sustainable building consulting company, and they say their belief in this work matches the dedication they once felt in the Army. The brothers talk with Dick Gordon about how they got the idea to start the company, and how their perspective as veterans helps them contribute to the green economy.
