Rob Hollingsworth is a co-founder of Plant Your Flag and former Navy K9 handler and police officer in Henderson, NV and Tacoma, WA.
Rob is a veteran and former law enforcement officer. Through his service his assignments included K9 and SWAT. Unfortunately, he had the misfortune of responding to multiple heinous events in his career. These included just about anything imaginable and unimaginable. Through these experiences he developed PTSD that took him years to “admit”. Also, during these times, he would hear military veterans and law enforcement officers express their desires to change the trajectory of their life but say things like: “but what else would I do”. As someone who is constantly striving for growth, to build an empire, and live how he wants to live, he realized that there was a dire need to help these individuals.
He now seeks to help people from these communities to think big, get healthy physically, mentally, and spiritually, and to learn how to live the life that they want. They do this all in their community: Plant Your Flag.
Since exiting LE, he has started a roofing consultant company & engaged in conducting roofing inspections, insurance claim consulting, and other aspects of the industry. He is an open book when it comes to speaking about PTSD and the effects on both veterans and law enforcement officers.
Rob is someone I really wished I had met when I started transitioning out of the military. My first job after active duty was Home Depot. Rob’s introduction to new members is asking if they wanted to work at Home Depot. I, for one, did not .
I feel like Rob is on an awesome path connecting with transitioning police officers and veterans to civilian life. The progression of my civilian career was mostly built on who you know and friends introducing you to others. That’s the impression I got from talking with Rob. This is the first introduction to a friend who wants to help others with educating them on lessons learned through trials and errors he’s made in life to make that transition easier for you.

We would really appreciate a share and like on IG, FB, YouTube, and Twitter. I am always looking for veterans or first responders who have battled PTSD to share how you have raised the quality of your life to shorten that journey for others. Additionally, if you support, provide services for these groups, or have extensive knowledge of benefits available for these groups please reach out. I would love to have a chat and share that knowledge with the community.
