David Reid

Dave Reid is a symbol of resilience, leadership, and relentless pursuit of excellence. As the Vice President for the Robert Irvine Foundation, he channels his extensive military experience into aiding veterans and first responders, serving as an influential advocate and key connector to the community he holds dear.

Enlisting in the Army in 2008, David's natural aptitude and hard work led him to the elite 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Regiment. His three tours in the Middle East, punctuated by a life-changing injury in Afghanistan, did not diminish his spirit. Instead, they fueled a new chapter in his life, turning adversity into inspiration.

Returning stateside, David embarked on a medical career, but a serendipitous encounter with Robert Irvine redirected his path. Through the Robert Irvine Foundation, he found a platform to make a substantial impact, providing crucial resources such as mobility devices and financial assistance to those who've served their country.

In addition to his business acumen, David is a powerful motivational speaker, inspiring others with his personal story of triumph over trials. His speeches resonate with both veterans facing challenges and civilians eager to contribute to relief efforts.

Living in San Antonio, Texas, David's life intertwines with his love for outdoor activities like shooting and skydiving, reflecting a zest for adventure that complements his professional endeavors.

Dave Reid's story is a testament to the human ability to adapt, overcome, and flourish. His work continues to leave a lasting legacy, touching lives and uplifting the veteran community, making him not just a successful professional but a beacon of hope and a true agent of change.
