In 1990, Mr. Spain decided to join the military, as it was an opportunity to serve his country while learning how to become a better person. For 26 years, he excelled with the United States Marine Corps, retiring in 2016 as a member of the E9. As a testament to his successful service, he was awarded the Legion of Merit Congressional Record from the United States Senate in 2019. This is the military’s highest honor, which made this a huge accomplishment for Mr. Spain. He believes it was a direct result of his patience, listening skills and natural ability to work well in a team.
While he dedicated much of his life to military service, Mr. Spain never let his service get in the way of his education. Backed by a Bachelor of Science in political science from the University of Maryland, he completed a fellowship at Georgetown University in 2011 in which he worked with the Government Affairs Institute studying legislative affairs. It was an honor for Mr. Spain to be selected for this fellowship, which made completing his studies one of his greatest achievements.
Today, Mr. Spain demonstrates success as the president of his local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Likewise, he serves as a consultant for contracting government officials. In this role, Mr. Spain works with 13 branches of the Northern Virginia government. He additionally spent 18 months as an investigator after initially retiring from the military.
