Brian Mast served the United States of America from 2000-2012 as a soldier in the U.S. Army. He has held the Military Occupational Specialties of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Airborne Infantry, and Combat Engineer.
In 2012 Brian retired from the U.S. Army’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) following a catastrophic injury incurred while serving in Afghanistan. His service and many lifesaving actions on the battlefield have been recognized by multiple awards for Valor, Merit, Sacrifice, Conduct, Achievement, and Excellence. Brian has also been recognized by the President of the United States, and been made an Honorary Member of the 75th Ranger Regiment for his contributions to the War on Terror.
Though Brian’s service with our nation’s most elite Special Operations Forces resulted in the bilateral amputation of both legs, neither his pace of life nor his work ethic have slowed. Since injury Brian has continued his work in Global Security Operations. He has provided analysis and training as a member of the National Nuclear Security Administrations (NNSA) Office of Emergency Operations in accordance with U.S. policy objectives. Brian has also provided explosive and tactical training to all federal agencies with first responder capabilities as an instructor of Home Made Explosives for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
Today Brian operates as an Explosive Specialist with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (TSA). His work is to defend the multimodal transportation systems from explosive threat and advise local law enforcement and federal agencies to include U.S. Secret Service, FBI, U.S. Marshals, ATF, and U.S. Department of State on explosive threats, possible effects, trends, and solutions.
When Brian is not working he is utilizing his GI Bill as a full time student of Harvard University, is a constant advocate for countless non-profit organizations, and a contributor to veterans and veteran supporting foundations.
