About Us

Our Story

For a unit, a team or a business, leadership defines the integrity of the mission

Foxhole Consulting LLC

We are a small consulting firm in North Carolina focused on driving home the value of leadership. Owned and operated by a combat-disabled veteran, we understand how a leader’s decisions affect the productivity, efficiency, and morale of their people.

Though the concept was in discussion last year, we officially filed in 2022. It was important to define our purpose and the expertise to support it. Every service and solution we offer is to help leaders make good decisions for their company, customers, and employees.

We’re not a big corporate entity with tons of junior staff. Our team is smaller, more agile and we don’t overstaff. We cover everything needed to create secure, sustainable business operations that strengthen opportunities and mitigate risk.

Our bench includes SMEs with qualitative insights and proven leadership in their field.  From risk assessments to cybersecurity simulations, we deliver the right people and the right expertise. Team building is a priority and we offer bundled documentation – plans, policies, procedures – for emergency preparedness and business continuity.

We maintain a culture of honesty and integrity. Leadership without ethics is unviable. Our quotes are written, the SOW is clearly defined and our work products are high quality. If at any time customers have a question or concern, our CEO is available to address it.

Advocacy for Disabled Veterans is Our Cause

Far too many veterans do not receive the disability benefits they deserve. Not because they were denied, but because they didn’t file.

The process used to be very complicated, but it has since been streamlined. There is no deadline for applying for and receiving disability from the VAFind out about eligibility.

FACTS:

  • You can file a claim with 180-90 days left on active duty
  • A post-service claim can be made at any time, but the process gets more complicated the longer you wait to file.
  • Specific disability benefits are available for Gulf War veterans.
  • A Fully Developed Claims program can expedite the process.
  • If secondary conditions occur, you can request additional compensation.

We offer pro-bono services to assist veterans who are eligible for disability but haven’t claimed it.
