Our latest Hometown Hero is Brian Harder of Terre Haute. He is a sergeant, E5 in the 113th Forward Support Fox Company of the Indiana Army National Guard.
Sgt. Harder has been serving since 2008 He was motivated to join the Army because of educational opportunities and he's taken advantage of them.
Serving has been important for Sgt. Harder since he was a boy, eventually achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, an experience he found helpful even during his military career.
Always ready to help, Sgt. Harder's unit has been activated several times to help victims of natural disasters.
He and his wife, Destiny, are Terre Haute North graduates and he recently accepted a civilian position at Hulman Field.
Always putting others first is a great reason why Sgt. Brian Harder is our latest Hometown Hero.
