Meet Flower Mound’s newest Hometown Heroes! Brothers Ryan Dane and Taylor Behrens were honored last night during the Oct. 4 Town Council meeting.
Ryan and Taylor moved to Flower Mound with their family in 1998. During his time at Flower Mound High School, Ryan joined JROTC. After graduation, he joined the United States Air Force and held several positions during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Ryan reenlisted in 2014 and was deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom before retiring in 2018 as a Senior Staff Sergeant.
Ryan’s family believes his dedication to the military influenced his younger brother, Taylor Behrens, to also join. Taylor played football at Flower Mound High School. After graduation, he joined the Army ROTC program at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. After college, Taylor continued his Army career by completing basic training in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Specialist Behrens is now a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Hometown Hero banners depicting the brothers were displayed in Flower Mound for months before being presented to Senior Staff Sgt. Ryan Dane. He accepted the banners and proclamations on behalf of himself and his brother.
