We are so lucky to have Austen on our team. His sense of humor and work ethic are a force multiplier. No matter how demanding the day is, Austen is the first one to share a quick joke and a smile to keep the team moving forward.
Austen is a Virginia native who grew up watching the Washington Redskins before going off to join the United States Army. He served as a Cavalry Scout (19D) at Fort Carson, CO. He went on to deploy to Afghanistan where he wore our nation's flag in combat overseas. When asked why he joined the Army he says "For the honor and the journey." We couldn't agree with him more.
Since leaving active military service, he is grateful for "the relationships and life lessons" he gained as a veteran. How does he feel about being on Team FOV? "The purpose and mission of FOV is what made me want to come here, but the people here are what make it special." - Austen
