MacAulay-Brown, Inc. employee Sean Clifton, Special Ops analyst and wounded warrior, was inducted into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame on May 5, 2017. Clifton and his family currently live in Dublin, Ohio, and the ceremony took place in Columbus at the Statehouse.
The retired master sergeant was honored, along with five other inductees, for serving multiple tours of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Special Forces intelligence sergeant for U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Beret). Clifton served in the U.S. Army Special Forces as a Green Beret and was critically wounded in Eastern Afghanistan in 2009.
Ohio’s Military Induction Ceremony is a high-profile event, with teammates, family members and friends attending from all over the country to honor Ohio veterans who received medals for valor while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. The event was well attended and standing-room only. Ohio is the first state to have a military hall of fame and to award medals of valor.
Clifton currently works for MacB’s Special Operations Command Europe, or SOCEUR, team at Camp Dawson in West Virginia. He serves as a defense analyst and Special Operations training adviser during joint and combined unconventional warfare exercises. The goal is to optimize force readiness for U.S. troops and international partners through the exercise of realistic tasks for deployment readiness within SOCEUR.
