Frank Hunt Jr.
Business Advisor

His career includes 32 years of US Navy and Joint military experience, 31 years as a small business owner, 19 years as a government contractor, and 21 years as a Department of Defense civil servant.  These efforts have overlap because Frank isn’t content doing one thing at a time.  His Navy experience (active duty & reserve) includes deck watches, shipboard engineering, amphibious operations, carrier aviation, flight instruction, tactical air control, HQ tours, Joint exercise control, and supporting local drinking establishments across the globe. 

As a government contractor he was a flight simulator instructor, training/curriculum developer, joint test simulation analyst, and joint exercise operator-trainer.  As a DoD civil servant, he was the COMSEC Manager for TRADOC, the network team lead for USJFCOM’s Joint Experimentation Directorate, and was a computer scientist for 15 years supporting Joint interoperability and integration, retiring as the Technical Integration Branch Chief within the Joint Staff J6.

His dedication to improving the efficacy of the US Armed Forces, an inability to sit still, and still wanting him to contribute led him to joining Combat Bound because the company is dedicated to improving the lot of “those that eat the MRE’s” through innovation and improvements in Rescue, Lethality, and Protection.
