It’s time once again for the Hometown Hero brought to you by Batavia Downs Gaming.  This week we honor an Airman Radar Technician Specialist in the Air Force.  Orignally from Buffalo, our Hometown Hero is Sgt. Elijah Ginter.

Elijah is the youngest of four children.  He just turned 25 on the 15th of December. After graduating from Hutch Tech in June of 2008 he entered the Air Force in July of the same year. He has been deployed numerous times to the Middle East and other parts of the world. He has now entered his 7th year of service.  He is also married and his wife of 5 yrs Tu Thi Ginter, joined the Air Force in May of 2013. Together they are stationed in Georgia and are serving at the Warner Robins Air Force Base.

So this week, we would like to honor and recognize Elijah and his wife for their service together.  We are proud to call Elijah our Hometown Hero of the week!

Once again, thank you to Air Force Sgt. Elijah Ginter, our Hometown Heroes of the week!
