15 - Branden Trager TFO Treasurer
Branden has had one of the most interesting careers in the military that I've come across yet. From working as a generals aid when he got to his first duty station, to getting to work with General Stanley McChrystal as his personal assistant, the stories are endless and the conversation was great.
Branden has been with TFO from the very beginning and has a wealth of knowledge and stories to share about the organization and what it continues to do today. From guiding veterans on waterfowl and fishing trips, to providing disaster recovery assistance with TFO during Hurricane Harvey. We are excited to share Branden's story as we take a deep dive into the many experiences he's enjoyed while in the outdoors, serving the country, and continuing to serve veterans now that he's retired.
