About Us

Who We Are

Task & Purpose is a news and culture site geared toward the next great generation of American veterans. We offer an outlet for well-written analysis and commentary on veterans and greater military affairs.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are coming to an end, and what results is a new kind of American veteran.

They return with remarkable skills, having shouldered unprecedented burdens, with a spirit of sacrifice and service needed to move the country forward.

We have no doubt that these men and women will do incredible things over the next 50 or more years. Our mission is to give them a voice.

Powered by Hirepurpose — a startup committed to matching talented veterans with great American companies — we aren’t just trying to speak to the next great generation of military veterans, we are actively trying to build it.
