More About Dustin...

Dustin Case is an American songwriter and performer who also serves as a federal employee. Born in Torrance, California, his father joined the Navy and was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Dustin’s early years leading up to elementary school were influenced by the island’s culture and people.

Moving back stateside was a culture shock but also gave him the understanding that not everything was shrugged off with a shake. Growing up throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, he and his brother took to the streets to learn how to fend for themselves. Music is one thing that provided a safe getaway and opportunity to bond with people on a broad scale.

The desire to be independent pushed Dustin to signing up for the Navy at 18, taking a job as a submarine mechanic. He learned about camaraderie and acquired experience that only traveling the world can give you. Five years were spent on the submarine, USS Rhode Island, until transferring to a tender in La Maddalena, Italy; off the coast of Sardegna for a year. Case ended his Naval career at the Norfolk, Virginia shipyard where he spent three years looking after ships of all classes.

Dustin spent two years working as a field service technician for Steris Corp upon his departure. It was here that he learned the mechanic skills taught in the Navy were helpful, but the work was not his calling in life. He turned to music full-time, fronting a Rock Band and singing tenor for the Pacific Shores Philharmonic. Although it was an amazing time, he had two boys to feed and the money was just not flowing right, so he turned to retraining.

Through volunteering with the Veteran nonprofit, Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, Dustin was realized that service made him feel just as good as performing did. The knowledge gained assisting Veterans lead to a position with Congresswoman Julia Brownley as her Veterans Affairs Intern.

Case used is connections and newfound skills to land a position with the Department of Veterans Affairs, where he currently works as a Coach, running his own team of employees processing Veterans compensation claims.
