He’s probably known best for having served as an occasional advisor to former US President Donald Trump during his presidency; Pete was an officer in the Army National Guard, and was a platoon leader at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
He was raised alongside his two younger siblings in Forest Lake, by their parents Penelope and Brian Hegseth. Pete studied at Forest Lake Area High School, and was an avid Football Player during his four years there, while he also enjoyed playing basketball and baseball. Upon matriculating in 1998, he enrolled at Princeton University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2003; Pete eventually continued his education at Harvard University’s John F.

Upon graduating in 2003, Pete began working at the New York state global investment bank Bear Stearns as their equity capital markets analyst, and joined the US Army National Guard in the same year.
He was sent to Guantanamo Bay in 2004, and was presented with an Army Commendation Medal; upon his return from Cuba, he volunteered and was sent to Samarra and Baghdad, while he was then awarded another Army Commendation Medal, a Combat Infantryman Badge, and a Bronze Star Medal. After years of being inactive, Pete returned to the US Army as a captain in 2012, and is today serving in the Individual Ready Reserve.
After returning from Baghdad, Pete began working at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research; he quit in 2007, having been offered the position of executive director at the American political advocacy organization Vets for Freedom.
