This Week’s Hometown Hero Is Green Beret Phil Braun
This week’s Hometown Hero comes from Amherst, NY. It’s SSGT Phil Braun!
SSGT Phil Braun is currently serving as a Green Beret in the 20th Special Forces Group. He deployed to Afghanistan during 2010, and Honduras in 2012. Phil is from Amherst, NY. He attended Amherst High School and just graduated from the College of Charleston (South Carolina) this May with a Bachelor Degree in International Business. In addition to becoming a Green Beret, Phil has also qualified as a Special Forces Combat Diver. While preparing for the course, Phil briefly trained at SUNY Buffalo, Department of Physiology, School of Medicine. The training he received there was very helpful in his succesful completion of the Army’s elite Combat Diver School.
We would like to say thank you to Phil and the entire family that supports him!
