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 is from Buffalo, NY.  From our United States Marine Corps, it’s Dan Brautlacht!

His nomination describes him this way:

 He is a sharp shooter. He is such a good shot that he beat 159 other marines and the instructors. The marines want to send him to California to train other marines. And then they want to send him to Paris island to train marines recruits how to shoot.


This week, we are honored to shine a spotlight on Dan Brautlacht and name him our Hometown Hero of the week!

Thanks once again to United States Marine Dan Brautlacht, our Hometown Hero of the week!
