CEO/Founder, Cowboy Jax Young is a disabled Veteran and suicide survivor with service-connected traumatic brain injury who founded Save Home Front (SHF) in 2016. Honorably discharged from the 101st Airborne Division, 1st of the 502nd Infantry “Air Assault.” After finding out that his battle buddy was killed in Iraq in ’03, he elected to pursue a career in professional entertainment which has proved to be multi-faceted, over 20 years.
This journey has led SHF in creating on-going relationships with celebrities, world influencers, and public figures who serve and support our country. These partnerships with Veterans and Community Neighbors (non-Veterans) is the purpose of the Life After the Uniform Movement; substantiating that “A proper depiction makes all the difference.”
