Vic Martin has been married for 16 years to his wife Kacy and they have three children ages 21, 15 and 10. After working in the legal field for many years, Vic was inspired to serve his Country and joined the United States Navy. He served as a Mineman, where his focus was working with underwater explosives. In 2012, while deployed in the Arabian Gulf, Vic was involved in an incident that resulted in him being medically-retired in 2013. Since his retirement, he has worked diligently to continue his service by volunteering and serving veterans in need.
As an outspoken veteran advocate, Vic regularly speaks to groups regarding mental health in the veteran community, the invisible injuries of war and suicide prevention. Currently, Vic is the co-Champion of the San Diego Veterans Coalition’s Physical & Emotional Health Action Group, an Ambassador for the film Stranger at Home and our very own Executive Director. As someone who has struggled financially in the past, Vic has experienced trying to get work and school without a vehicle. He spent years on public transportation and understands the challenges associated. So, when he was presented with the opportunity to join WRP and provide a vehicle to a veteran family in need, he knew it was a perfect fit. We are grateful to have Vic as part of the Warrior Resource Project leadership team and for his continued service to our Country’s heroes!
