David Cyr is a grassroots engagement director for Concerned Veterans for America in North Carolina and a veteran of the United States Army.
Originally from Middletown, Connecticut, David enlisted in the U.S. Army with an Airbrone Infantry option in 1995. He served just over three years before an honorable discharge after which he enlisted in the Connecticut National Guard. Following September 11, David participated in several operations supporting Operation Noble Eagle along with being hand-picked to serve as a member of the Anti-Terror Taskforce for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
A trip to ground zero in New York in 2002 solidified for David that he was ready to get back into the fight. He re-entered active duty and deployed three times, once to Afghanistan, where he earned a Bronze Star with Valor, and twice to Iraq. David spent a significant portion of his time in the Army as a recruiter in New England, New York, and North Carolina. David was medically retired in 2017.
After service, David returned to school at the University of Connecticut where he earned a psychology degree with an emphasis in PTSD, trauma, and moral injury. He is passionate about giving back within the veteran and civilian community and volunteers and mentors through multiple nonprofit organizations.
David lives in the Mount Pleasant area with his beloved wife Angelina and their daughter Celia Rose.
