Task & Purpose is a military and veteran-focused digital media company enjoyed by millions of readers each month. Founded in 2014 by Zach Iscol, Brian Jones, and Lauren Katzenberg, Task & Purpose provides authentic reporting and perspectives on the stories that matter to military members, veterans, and the broader American public.

Our journalists have reported on American veterans being abused in Kuwaiti prisons, the deported veterans being forced to work for Mexican cartels, the Standing Rock protests in North Dakota, and drawn national attention to a longstanding legal rule barring service members from suing the government — even in the face of gross negligence, among many noteworthy examples.

Reporting everywhere from The Pentagon to The White House and beyond, Task & Purpose journalists have also garnered important exclusives, such as the first known insider attack in Syria, confirmation of the first Medal of Honor being awarded to an airman since Vietnam, and the practice of private housing companies forcing families into silence in order to have their problems addressed.

Our contributing writers have included Medal of Honor recipients, President Barack Obama, Senator John McCain, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, leading influencers, noted authors, and more than 500 military service members and veterans who have shared their hard-earned knowledge and expertise with the broader community.

The parent company of Task & Purpose is Grid North Group, which also includes HirePurpose, a job site for military service members, veterans, and spouses that has helped more than 50,000 veterans with employment and 100+ Fortune 1000 companies, and MilSpouse Festivals, an event-based network for military spouses to be able to build community.
