George Decastro

“Raised by a career US Army officer dad and a civilian Army project manager mom, I was instilled with a deep sense of service. Whether as an Eagle Scout or team captain in track or rugby, I feel profound satisfaction from lifting others up by being a dependable and friendly support system. At The George Washington University I fell in love with studying Russian and Spanish languages and culture and politics. With my International Relations and Security Policy degree, I sought to extend this sense of service and passion for learning into a career. I have worked in veterans’ affairs advocacy, national security policy, and international security operations for more than ten years. I enjoy seeing and experiencing the world, and a lifelong goal is to continue to travel. More than anything, I love that I have made dear friends and loved ones through shared hobbies and passions, whether that’s bettering myself through physical fitness or flexing my creative muscles by writing and telling stories through playing dungeons & dragons and other games.”
