In this edition of Giving Back, YNN honors Brian Knapp. He founded the Veterans Club at Cayuga Community College as part of an effort to continue the same camaraderie often found in the military. Knapp served for five years, including time in Afghanistan, and wanted to make a difference for his fellow veterans going back to school. Knapp has also spent significant time working with various Wounded Warrior projects.

Along with his volunteer work, Brian Knapp is now also veterans’ outreach coordinator for Congressman Dan Maffei. Knapp is among a group of “30 Under 30” veterans being honored at next month’s Central New York Veterans’ Parade and Expo.
