Steven Nisbet is the President and Co-founder of Shields & Stripes.

Steven Nisbet is a veteran entrepreneur. He served nearly 16 years and medically retired in June 2021 from the U.S. Air Force as a Special Warfare Pararescueman. 

Steven always had a drive and passion to help others, which made his decision to become a pararescueman an easy one. Steven served in ten combat deployments in various operating areas including Afghanistan, Africa, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Over this period, Steven lost over 15 teammates to combat or combat-related circumstances and has himself experienced mental health injuries due to sustained combat operations.

Steven’s passion to help others is just as strong today as when he began his service. His personal experiences with PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms have made him acutely aware of those groups that are in need of the very treatment he received.

Steven identified a lack of mental and physical health support within the law enforcement and first responder communities, thus creating Shields & Stripes.

Jenna Carlton (The Millennial Veteran) is a Navy veteran who served as an Aerographer’s Mate from 2013-2017. After getting out she went to school and did an internship at The House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs hoping to make an impact on the veteran community. She soon found out that policy may not be the best route in her efforts of helping other veterans.


Soon after she started a Facebook support group, “The Millennial Veterans” with two of her friends in 2020 to reach out to younger veterans in the hopes of creating a community. Their goal is to get younger veterans involved and aware of their resources. Jenna published The Veteran Workbook, a journal-style book, that puts the pen in the hand of the veteran to reflect on service, recreate structure, plan for the future, and re-discover their new identity without the military.
