November 10, 2021 @ 12:00 - 14:00 EST
Join Award Winning National Speaker, Justin Constantine, to a discussion about change, resilience, and a never quit attitude . . . His story is one that you will not want to miss.
Justin joined the Marine Corps while in law school, and served on active duty as a JAG officer for six years. Then as a Reservist, Justin deployed to Iraq in 2006, serving as a Civil Affairs Team Leader while attached to an infantry battalion. During a combat patrol, Justin was shot in the head by a sniper. For his service in Iraq, Justin earned the Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon and Navy-Marine Corps Commendation Medal.
Justin retired from the Marine Corps at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He now runs his own business as an inspirational speaker, and is part of the leadership team at JobPath, a very robust veteran employment platform. He often speaks about thriving in the face of change, resilience, and asking for help. His writing on military and leadership issues has been published in The Washington Post, Time, CNN, The Atlantic, and Forbes Magazine. Justin has also published a leadership book and one on veteran employment.
Despite his injury, Justin was the Honor Graduate of his class at the Marine Corps Command and Staff College. And in 2015, while working full time at the FBI as a lawyer on a counter-terrorism team, he graduated on the Dean’s List from Georgetown University with an advanced law degree focusing on National Security.
Justin was named a Champion of Change for Veterans by President Obama and was also one of the wounded warriors painted by President Bush in his book Portraits of Courage. In 2017, Justin received the Henry Viscardi Achievement Award for raising awareness and improving the quality of life for people with disabilities. Justin is a member of the Board of Advisors for both the WETA Mental Health Initiative and the University of Denver Sturm Center in Military Psychology.
