Speaking on

Lt Col Tim Maxwell, an active duty infantryman with nineteen years in the Marine

Corps, currently serves as an advisor to the US Marine Corps Wounded Warrior

Regiment. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Texas

A&M University and a Masters in Operations Analysis from the Naval Postgraduate

School, Monterey, California.

Deployed six times throughout his career with three tours in Iraq and one in

Afghanistan, Lt Col Maxwell suffered a severe traumatic brain injury on October 7,

2004 during his final deployment to Iraq. His forward operating base in Kalsu was

mortared, and shrapnel tore through the left side of his brain.

During his recuperation, he discovered that for himself and others recovery was

enhanced by being together with other wounded warriors. Because of his initiative,

Marines at the Wounded Warrior Barracks (named Maxwell Hall in his honor) at

Camp Lejeune find improved recovery through team healing.

Lt Col Maxwell’s personal awards include the Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart,

Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal (3), Navy/Marine Corps Achievement

Medal (2), Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism

Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, and the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon (6).
