Helping Veterans Succeed in Politics with Joshua McCarver, USMA ‘07

Mar 30, 2021 | USMA

Joshua McCarver (USMA ‘07) is the founder of Academy Politics, a nonprofit focused on recruiting, educating, and connecting Service Academy graduates who want to transition into politics.  Academy Politics focuses on improving the bipartisan problem-solving nature of government while working to put more veterans into public office at the local, state, and national levels. 

In this episode, Josh and I discuss:

  • Why it is important to get more veterans into public office
  • How his organization started with a Facebook group in 2018 
  • Academy Politics’ training partners and the network that supports Service Academy graduates interested in running for office
  • The lessons he learned at West Point and during his military career that are helping him grow the Academy Politics community
