Montgomery County Recorder McClain receives veteran honor
Montgomery County Recorder and Veteran Brandon McClain was named the 2019 Herman Zerger Veteran of the Year. Herman Zerger, who recently celebrated his 96th birthday, is a WWII Veteran who was a Prisoner of War for 95 days. The award is presented every year to a veteran who epitomized impeccable character, a strong dedication to his country, and outstanding service to Democratic ideals.
Since 2018, Recorder McClain has introduced the Veteran Identification Card Program to connect veterans to earned benefits through a complimentary ID Card while also offering offsite recording of military service release documentation (commonly known as the DD-214) to assist disabled and immobile veterans. Most recently, McClain launched the Voices for Veterans Advisory Group to assist veterans seeking a second set of medals or information about discharge upgrades.
McClain, who formerly served as a Magistrate Judge in Dayton Municipal Court and an Attorney with the Montgomery County Veterans' Treatment Court, was a Sergeant in the Army National Guard prior to being honorably discharged.
