Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Terrance A. Brown.

While serving with the Army then later with the Department of Defense as a civilian, Terrance has been deployed to Somalia, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.

He also served as a training instructor for the Army Aviation Logistics School, and worked as an aircraft equipment specialist for the Army Aviation Missile Command.

For his honorable service, Terrance is the recipient of the Bronze Star, Air Medal and the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service.

After retiring from the Army, Terrance has continued to serve his fellow Veterans as the current Veterans Employment Program Manager for the Federal Aviation Administration. He said of his job, “The best part is continuing to serve those who have served.”

Thank you for your service, Terrance!
