Nick Coffman grew up in the midwest and always had an interest in the military. After a few years of attending college, he decided to enlist in the Marine Corps. On March 25, 2007, he left for basic training at Parris Island, SC. After combat and MOS training, he received orders to the 8th Marine Regiment in Camp Lejeune as a network operator. After completing one deployment to Iraq in 2009 with Regimental Combat Team 8 (RCT-8), he then received orders to MARFORCOM in Norfolk, VA. In 2012, he left active duty as a sergeant with an honorable discharge.
Nick transitioned to a career as a systems engineer with an IT firm while simultaneously working on his bachelor’s degree in IT Management. After graduation, he began working on his master’s degree in IT Project Management. Upon completion of his master’s degree, he began working as an IT Project Manager until 2018 when he was offered an opportunity to change careers.
In 2018, he assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief for SOFREP Media Group and its flagship site, SOFREP.com. There he published many investigative pieces highlighting how the military legal system was being abused at the expense of innocent servicemembers. Some of the notable stories he covered include the “MARSOC 7” case involving men from MARSOC’s Fox Company, a case involving men from 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion’s Bravo Company, and later the “MARSOC 3” case.
Nick has a passion for defending our defenders and shining a light on the injustices carried out against our nation’s warriors when so many others — in his experience — within the news media industry are not interested in speaking out in support of the truth. He believes strongly in holding our senior military leaders accountable for their actions.
In 2020, when the opportunity arose for him to join UAP full-time in support of our warriors, he jumped at the chance and has not looked back.
He is married to his wonderful wife of nearly ten years and they have two beautiful children.
