It’s time once again for our Hometown Hero, brought to you by Batavia Downs Gaming with help from our friends at WNY Heroes who help us with our nominations every week.  This week, our Hometown Hero from Lockport, NY serves in the United States Army.  It’s Sergeant First Class Jason Dent!

Jason enlisted in the Army in August 1998.  After completing basic and AIT as an Infantryman, Sergeant Dent’s first station was Ft.Campbell KY.  He deployed to Kosovo from 1998-2002.  From there he headed to Ft Drum NY and was deployed once again to Afghanistan as a scout team leader.  In 2004 he was once again deployed, this time it was a 17 month deployment to Iraq.  He was then picked for recruiting in 2007 and has recruited in Western New York and Ohio. SFC Dent submitted for retirement from the US Army for August 2018.

We certainly wish him the best in his retirement and want to thank him for his service to our country.  This week, we are grateful to name him our Hometown Hero of the week!
