A couple of weeks ago we told you the story of Blake Holston of Terre Haute who convinced his Mom to let him join the Marines early. His success motivated his younger brother, Brian, to follow in his footsteps.
After Brian graduated high school, he married and started a family. Unfulfilling jobs followed but big brother Blake proved he could make a life in the military.
He joined the Army and while he was away at basic, his daugher, Madilynn, was born. Upon graduation he got to meet his new daughter. He is now doing well at Ft. Benning, Georgia with his new career and his new family! That's why his mother is extremely proud of our latest Hometown Hero.
