It’s time once again for our Hometown Hero, with help from our friends at WNY Heroes who help us with our nominations every week.  This week, our Hometown Hero is from Tonawanda, NY.  From our United States Army, it’s David Bain!

David Bain, was drafted into the Army in April of 1967. He Spent 8 weeks in boot camp, then 8 weeks in airborne infantry training. By October of that year, he had been sent to Vietnam. Bain was wounded three times and then sent to the base camp to go on R&R. After all was said and done, he was burned over 50%of his body. He was later sent to the hospital where he was assigned to the 82nd airborne division.

 

This week, we are honored to name David Bain our Hometown Hero of the week!

Thanks once again to David Bain from our United States Army, our Hometown Hero of the week!
