Brandon Veatch - Crown Royal Finalist

Crown Royal "Your Hero's Name Here 400"

Brandon Veatch, 36, of Bloomfield, Ind., served eight years in the United States Army Special Forces. Deployed twice, once to Baghdad and once to northern Iraq, Veatch was injured fighting off three separate ambushes while intercepting a kidnapping in the streets of Baghdad in 2004. For his heroism, Veatch was awarded a Purple Heart by U.S. Senator Dan Coats in February 2012. 

Veatch was humbled by this nomination and hopes to continue to be a role model for men rising through the ranks today. He is currently an Acquisitions Management Specialist for the Navy at Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center and recently celebrated his fourth anniversary with his wife, Melissa. 

In his free time, he enjoys carpentry and watching his children play baseball and basketball. If he wins the grand prize, Veatch says, "There are a million and one things I am looking forward to, I can‘t just pick one. I would just feel privileged to represent so many heroes."

Remember Voting begins on May 21st on the Crown Royal Facebook site.
