|Hello Charter Oak State College Alum --
We're sending along another interesting profile that focuses on the endeavors and achievements of a fellow Charter Oak graduate. We hope you enjoy Bruce Brown's story.
U.S. Coast Guard Commander, Award-Winning Author, Businessman
Charter Oak graduates have succeeded in a wide variety of professional endeavors, and a noteworthy career in the military is prominent among them. During his 27 years of service, Bruce Brown rose from a seaman recruit in the United States Coast Guard to the lofty rank of Commander. While executing assignments related to his highly responsible Coast Guard position, he diligently pursued and reached his educational goal -- a career-enhancing Bachelor of Science degree from Charter Oak State College.
During his career, Bruce has been directly involved in many of the Coast Guard's maritime law enforcement efforts including counter-narcotic and embargo operations. He coordinated aid logistics for hurricane Katrina-stricken New Orleans and assumed critical leadership in developing a financial management system that aided the Coast Guard's response role during the Haitian earthquake -- just a few of the achievements that have earned Bruce C. Brown multiple military leadership awards and commendation from the service branch "committed to strengthening the nation's future by educating, developing, training, and inspiring leaders of character..." It appears that the achievements of this dedicated U.S. Coast Guard officer and distinguished Charter Oak State College alum are a reflection of this sound Coast Guard mission statement.
Bruce has, somehow, found time between his military assignments to author and publish a dozen books that address a wide range of interests including internet marketing, conceptual advertising , blogging techniques and benefits for retired members of the military.
