Veteran of the Month

SGT Trevor Hartz

A true champion in and out of uniform. After serving in the United States Marine Corps for 4 years, Sergeant Trevor Hartz took his leadership to a new level. Graduating from MTSU in 2010, he utilized his training in both the Marine Corps and MTSU to become a social entrepreneur in his beloved state of Tennessee. More relevant than ever, Sergeant Hartz founded a revolutionary business called Handwash HQ – a company deeply dedicated to giving back to licensed veteran charities.

His bands include “Be Strong” Tan; “Just Breathe” Tan; and “US Marines” Tan Name Tape ValorBands.
