Robert Martinez

My name is Robert J. Martinez.  I reside in Denver, CO.  I was born and raised in Weslaco, Texas.

I am a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant of 20 years of service, and a Persian Gulf War Veteran.  Learning my strengths and weaknesses and seeking self-improvement were invaluable when giving back to the Marines I led in peace time—and during the Persian Gulf War.  The relationships I developed in the Corps continue to be a part of my life still today.  Leading by example has been the motto I practiced during my tour of duty, and the foundation I continue to build upon in my new profession.

I am a sworn police officer in Denver, CO.  I have been with the department approximately 5 years.  I sit in various boards that directly affect how anti-gang programs are created, and maintained to help reduce gang recruitment, and help surpress gang violence by engaging the community to get involved and have a voice. 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, and a Master of Arts degree in Human Resource Management & Organizational Development.  Both degrees are from National University located in La Jolla, California.   

I have assumed the Chairman position for the Unseen Child Foundation in hopes of helping abused and abandoned children.  We are accomplishing this by providing safe havens for children and young adults.

I was the unexpected child. My twin sister and I have four other siblings. I must now open the journals of my childhood and share the gripping story of our struggles with a life of abuse. I hope that by telling my story, it will help give other unseen children, and my siblings, the courage to heal.
