William Brown served in the Army as a combat engineer, attached to the 75th Ranger Battalion. From there, he went to Germany, then was stationed in Fort Leavenworth as a prison guard.
Since separating, William enjoys spending time with his grandchildren and especially likes to take them camping and fishing. He volunteers with a number of nonprofits, including K-9 Battle Buddies and Boots on the Ground. William views this expedition as an opportunity to overcome some of his own barriers with the help of his fellow veterans.
