Sergeant Justin Pullin, U.S. Army, Ret. joined the Army in 2005 as a 12B Combat Engineer. After completing Airborne School, Pullin was assigned to a rapid deployment unit in Fort Hood, TX.
In October 2006, Pullin deployed to Iraq. On January 26, 2007 while on a routine route clearance mission with his unit his vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device. Pullin sustained third degree burns from the blast to roughly fifty percent of his body. Pullin has had many surgeries and skin grafts. He ultimately spent 18 months recovering at Brook Army Medical Center. For his service, Pullin was awarded the Purple Heart and Combat Action Badge. In November 2009, Pullin was medically Ret. from the U.S. Army.
Golf has been a part of Pullin’s life off and on from his youth, but he picked it up again in 2017. He credits the game for his recent 70-pound weight loss and helping with his post-traumatic stress. He volunteers at the Fort Carson Golf Course where he regularly plays, improving his game.
Pullin spends much of his time enjoying being at home with his wife, Brittany, and three sons Jacob, Landon and Abram. He appreciates anything outdoors, from hunting and fishing to riding bicycles and golfing.
