Who is Eric Graves of Soldier Systems Daily?

After combined enlisted service in the U.S. Army and commissioned in the U.S. Air Force, Eric Graves retired from the military in 2006 and worked as a contractor to Blackwater, as well as others in the defense industry with defense technology company, Ares Systems Group.  His military service includes assignments in communications, intelligence, logistics, and acquisitions—primarily in support of Special Operations Forces—where he served in Army, Air Force, and Joint Special Operations units. His combined military and industry experience gave him a unique insight into how military personnel are equipped.

This led to his founding of Soldier Systems Daily in 2008.  SSD is an industry resource, publishing seven days a week with a focus on the clothing and individual equipment used to protect military and law enforcement personnel.  In addition to new product information, SSD offers information on government procurements and industry announcements.
