Mychael Munk, Training Coordinator

CalVet, CalTAP

Mychael Munk is a Training Coordinator on the CalTAP team in the Veterans Services division. Mychael was primarily raised on the west side of Pennsylvania in the Allegheny County area, towards Pittsburgh. He knew from an early age that he wanted to enlist shortly after completing grade school.

He’s an accomplished military veteran with over eleven years of qualified service with the United States Navy and United States Navy Reserve. Mychael served seven years of active duty in the Navy with an additional five years of active reserve time supporting Naval Operational Support Center, San Diego. Mychael enlisted as part of Naval Security Forces as a Master-At-Arms. During his years of service, he had the opportunity to see various locations in the European, Middle Eastern, and Asian regions. Mychael also served a nine-month deployment onboard the aircraft carrier, known as the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), to assist in supporting the global war on terror.

After Mychael ended his active-duty service, he pursued his education at Grossmont Community College in El Cajon, San Diego, where he obtained an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration. He then furthered his education by attending California State University, San Diego where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Management, with a concentration in Human Resources.

In between Mychael’s time off from his college curriculum, he worked for the Office of Military and Veteran Affairs in San Diego County as an assistant. In this role, he helped many veterans, dependents, and their families obtain the benefits they deserve. These types of duties are what made him fall in love with the veteran atmosphere. Ultimately, seeking out a career in veteran outreach fulfills his passion for transition assistance.
