Brian L. Ciers is our 23-year-old nephew and the son of proud parents Janet Ciers and Albert Calloway. He was born and raised in the West End in Cincinnati. He is the second oldest of five children, and he is known to family and friends as Buddy!
Brian attended Taft High School, and later went to Job Corp in Evinburgh, IN where he was first exposed to the armed services. After graduating from Job Corp, he returned to Cincinnati to start working.
Remembering his exposure to the armed services, Brian decided to join the United States Navy in August of 2001 days before September 11. He was initially stationed in Illinois, and now he is stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Since he has been in the Navy, he has had several promotions including Seaman of the Year. He is currently on the U.S.S. Reuben James in the Persian Gulf. He is proud to be serving his country, but he misses his family deeply. We are proud of him, and pray for his safe return.
