Brandon Hill was security police for his 4-year active enlistment in the Air Force. During that time he was stationed at Minot AFB, ND, Riyadh AB, Saudi Arabia, and Incirlik AB, Turkey.
The other 18 years of Brandon's career were with the Oregon Air National Guard in Portland, OR, where he was an Air Force medic for six years, and then a Nurse for the last 12 years. He traveled to Belize, Guam, Panama, and Hawaii for humanitarian deployments, and served two tours in combat in both Iraq as a nurse of a clinic in 2008 and Afghanistan as an ICU nurse in 2010. Brandon retired as a Major - O-4- in 2015 with a total of 22 years of service.
He worked as a civilian RN in Portland, OR in the ER for eight years, and then moved to serve fellow veterans at the Portland VA for seven years. He currently works at the Spokane VA in Urgent Care. Outside of work, he enjoys camping, fishing, shooting guns with his family, watching sports, and playing golf.
Brandon's kidney disease has been service-connected. The root cause is unknown, but it has slowly worsened during and after his military service. Since he only has one kidney, doctors don’t want to biopsy it.
Brandon has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
