SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — The national nonprofit Soldiers’ Angels today announced Brent Cooper as the new Vice President of Programs. As the Vice President, Cooper will lead the overall strategic and operational responsibility for all program areas in the organization.
Before joining Soldiers’ Angels, Cooper served as the Executive Director of the Green Beret Foundation, where he developed the strategy and drove execution across all functional areas.

His resume speaks for itself, and we can’t wait for him to help Soldiers’ Angels better serve Veterans, Service Members, and their families.”
