Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Robert Consulmagno.
Robert joined the Marine Corps in 1991 and served as a 3051 Warehouse Clerk.
He spent time at Camp Lejune, Okinawa, and Quantico. He separated from the Corps in 1996.
More than a decade after his service, he was diagnosed with PTSD and bipolar disorder. He uses activities such as boxing and martial arts to help cope. He now works to advocate for and inspires Veterans in similar situations.
On June 10th, he will attempt to break his own record for standing ab wheel roll outs.
Good luck, Robert, and thank you for your service!
