Timothy (Tim) Colomer joined the Marines when he was just 17 years old, and went on to serve for 14 years in what’s arguably the most dangerous job in the world: an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician. From 1993 to 2007, Tim disposed of hundreds of explosive items in Iraq and around the United States, clearing paths to keep service members safe.
While in Iraq in 2006, the vehicle Tim was riding in was blown up, and the injuries he sustained ended his military career. Tim was awarded the Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor in combat and a Purple Heart for the injuries he sustained in that attack.
Tim then moved on to train active duty military forces on weapons of mass destruction. He was also the program manager of the Marine Corps EOD program, and served as a liaison between the Department of Justice and Department of Defense at the FBI explosives unit in Quantico, Virginia. During this time, he also obtained his Master’s Degree from The George Washington University.
Following these roles, Tim pursued a successful career at A-T Solutions. He then ventured into corporate America as the Global Explosives Safety Officer for Halliburton.
Tim is an advocate for wounded Veterans, and an ambassador for the EOD Warrior Foundation. He also volunteers his time to mentor Veterans during their transition out of the military.
