U.S. Marine Corps Veteran (ret.)
The Constantine Group
New York, NY
Justin Constantine is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps, former attorney, and author. While deployed in Iraq as a Civil Affairs Team Leader attached to an infantry battalion in 2006, he was shot in the head by a sniper during routine combat patrol. Thanks to the bravery of his fellow Marines and a courageous Navy Corpsman, he survived against all odds.
After retiring from the Marine Corps at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Justin became devoted to helping others as an inspirational speaker and veteran advocate. He recently completed his first book, My Battlefield, Your Office, which applies military leadership skills to the private sector. His second book, focused on veteran employment, will be published next year in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
Justin was the Honor Graduate of his class at the Marine Corps Command and Staff College. In 2012, the Virginia Legislature passed a resolution highlighting Justin’s continued support of veterans and other wounded warriors. In 2015, he graduated on the Dean’s List from Georgetown University with a Master of Laws degree focusing on National Security.
