Rich Swanson is leading the operations for JDog in the Seattle area. He retired from the US Army as a Sergeant 1st Class after 22 years of honorable service in 2007. Rich was born in Shakopee, Minnesota and grew up in the “Iron Range” of Northern Minnesota which one can tell by his accent!
Rich joined the Army in 1985 and attended Basic Training in Fort Benning. He took part in three Military Operations: Panama in 1989, Desert Storm in 1991, and Haiti in 1995. His military career brought him all over the world. He was in Fort Polk, LA, Ft Campbell, KY, Schofield Barracks, HI, Ft. Lewis, WA, Camp Casey, Korea, and finally JBLM in Washington. After his military career, he stayed in the job of protecting people as a contractor in Africa.
Recently, Rich has kept up his servicing of others by ensuring all military personnel were aware of their VA Benefits, and how to best use them. Rich is the first employee for JDog Seattle and has the task of launching JDog in the PNW. The goal of the company is to hire 100% US Military Veterans.
Rich has two sons who are currently in the Army, with one of them graduating from Basic Training in August of 2018. He is married to Mimi who is expecting their first child in October!! Rich balances all of these responsibilities by getting back to nature. On his off days, one can find him fishing or hunting.
