Rory Kelly - Chief Veterans Officer

Originally from Omaha, Rory is a 2011 graduate of Notre Dame. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and earned his commission through completing Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in Quantico, VA. He was designated as an intelligence officer.

His first assignment was at 1st Radio Battalion at Camp Pendleton, CA, where he served as a platoon commander, detachment commander, and future operations officer. In 2015, he deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.

His second tour took him back to the Midwest, where for three years he led the Marine Corps Officer Selection Team in Champaign, IL, in accomplishment of its recruiting mission. Recently transitioned to the Marine Reserves, Rory was thrilled to return to Notre Dame, a place with unparalleled community while espousing the tenets of servant leadership, to pursue his graduate degree.
