Las Vegas Nevada, Specialist Brandon Wegner was deployed to Iraq for 15 months with the 230th Military Police Company, from December 2007 through March 2009; Wegner was in combat for the entire time in Iraq.

When the battle in Iraq came to an end Specialist Wegner was then deployed to Afghanistan in 2011.

Specialist Wegner’s unit was attached to the Tenth Mountain Brigade that came under fire; Specialist Wegner was hit with a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG). Wegner eliminated the threat.

During this battle, over 32 of Wenger’s soldiers were wounded. Wegner was awarded a Purple Heart for wounds received in action on 15 November 2011, at Combat Out Post Afghanistan by Brigadier General Gordon Davis.
