Bottom Line Up Front, 'BLUF', Military Benefits (BMB) was founded by Jeff (Current CEO), an Air Force Captain, with a passion for helping fellow U.S. military families better understand and learn about many opportunities that often go unrealized.
To date, the team refers to Jeff, a stellar Board of Directors, a core group of family and friend supporters, and a few invaluable military veteran freelance writers.
We would love to grow our core volunteer support team with more members across the globe!
