About the Group
Nicolas Hurst served in the United States Marine Corps from 2004-2008 as a machine-gunner with Second Battalion Sixth Marines Regiment Second Marine Division Golf Company. While enlisted, Hurst completed two combat deployments – the first to Al Saqliwiyah and the second to Fallujah. After his honorable discharge, Hurst returned to home to Delaware, where he started his career as a police officer with New Castle County. Then, in 2016, Hurst became inspired to start two initiatives for veterans. The 2/6 Marines Memorial March raises money to build a memorial for Marines from Hurst’s unit that were killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. The other is Veterans Response Team which is a team of law enforcement officers who are also military veterans that respond to calls for veterans who are in crisis throughout the State of Delaware. This team is only the second team of its kind in the nation. Hurst spends his down time with his wife and two sons.
