Tom Spooner, Co-Founder Warriors Heart
Tom Spooner’s service to our nation in the U.S. Army spanned twenty-one years. His career included time in the 82nd Airborne, as a Green Beret in the US Army’s 7th Special Forces Group and, ultimately, in the elite US Army’s 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. In his military career that included 3 years of direct action combat deployments, Tom was able to accomplish what less than .001% of US military personnel have by becoming a Delta Force Operator.
After retiring from the Army, Tom approached his struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with the same tenacity and commitment to excellence that he did his military career. He began speaking candidly about the repercussions of his experiences and the reality of the difficulties he had coping with them. Determined to help his community cope with suicide and addiction as a result of their experiences in war, Tom has rededicated his professional efforts to healing. With a voice nearly unmatched in credibility and experience, Tom has successfully enabled thousands of military and law enforcement personnel to admit their struggles, seek treatment, and understand that they are not alone.
Tom has been married for 24 years to the love of his life and is the proud father of 2 young men.
