About FireWatch Solutions
Founder Brian von Kraus leads a team that brings elite military combat experience to the humanitarian sector.
In his 15 years of service with the United States Marine Corps, Brian was deployed in combat to both Iraq and Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, he was involved in Village Stability Operations, working with local communities in the Helmand Valley. This experience would shape his future non-profit work.
After retiring, he joined Nuru International, providing security support for country projects in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Nigeria. “I realized through my experience in Iraq and Afghanistan that the military could never offer the complete solution to conflict,” says Brian. “I think the organizations that holistically address a community’s needs have a better chance of building peace.”
These dual passions – battle-proven military training, and humanitarian service – joined together in FireWatch Solutions.
