Tim Bomke had an appointment with his Army recruiter on the morning of 9/11/2001.  The events of that morning only strengthened his resolve to serve.  A few years later, Tim and his platoon were patrolling in Iraq, when a massive IED hit his vehicle.  Badly wounded, he started on a new journey of recovery, resilience, and continued service.
Over the past several years, Tim has advocated for veterans and military families in both education and employment.  He is a co-founder of Microsoft’s Military Systems and Software Academy, spent three years working in veteran/spouse programs at Starbucks, and currently leads the effort at Amazon.
We have a great discussion that covers:
• Tim’s mindset during his recovery and rehabilitation
• The power of finding a purpose
• Why veterans and military spouses are great assets
• And so much more
