Bill Muir: Breaking Stereotypes and Being Vegan in the Military

Feb 18, 2019

Watch Episode 6 with Bill Muir here:

Bill Muir, also known as SGT. Vegan, doesn’t make excuses.

A vegan since 1992, Bill has traveled to 47 countries, served in the army, and was deployed to Afghanistan, all without breaking his commitment to his cruelty-free diet.

Bill completed the brutal basic training on a plant-based diet and went on to become a medic and paratrooper, never wavering from his mission to help others.  He now works as an RN at the VA Center of Los Angeles and wrote a book, “Vegan Strong,” to dispel the “hippie” myth surrounding a vegan diet.

He proves that you can maintain your health and your ethics no matter your circumstances, and he is working to help others realize this fact.
