Starting Oct. 31, the men of ConnectingVets undertook a month-long challenge to grow the best veteran beard or #VetBeard.

We took (almost) daily photos of the journey and listened intently as they described the experience of being baby-faced once again, the discomfort of sleeping with the new beard growth, and the slow, agonizing process of facial hair growth.

Here is a recap of their journey and we wish them all the best in their continued pursuit of the best veteran beard, or in Jonathan’s case, the hassle-free life of being bald.





And follow the journey again with our videos documenting it from the beginning.
