Sgt. Daniel Fire From North Tonawanda Is This Week’s Hometown Hero

Daniel Fire (cropped)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 North Tonawanda, NY is 65 year old Daniel Fire!

Sergeant Daniel Fire from the United States Air Force is a Purple Heart Vietnam Veteran.  The injury came from a rocket attack at Da Nang Air Base with the 366th Tactical Fighter Wing.  The injuries and ailments however didn’t end there unfortunately.  He has also suffered from PTSD, Ischemic Heart Disease, diabetes and nerapathy due to his exposure to Agent Orange while he was there.

He still isn’t slowed down from it though.  He has gone on to become the mayor, postmaster, and has served as a wrestling coach for 39 years now.  As a matter of fact, he is a six time coach of the year and hall of fame wrestling coach at North Tonawanda High School.

We want to say thank you to Daniel Fire from North Tonawanda for the sacrifices he made while serving in the United States Air Force.  This week, we are proud to name him our Hometown Hero of the week!
