General Brower began his Army career in the Air Defense Artillery before moving to Special Forces. He served in both the 3rd and 5th Special Forces Groups, commanding at the Detachment, Company, Battalion and Group levels.
General Brower’s combat service following the events of 9/11 included the initial invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq, with three additional tours to Iraq culminating with country-wide responsibilities for all special operations, one to Afghanistan and another deployment to Islamabad, Pakistan.
In General Brower’s final assignment at Fort Campbell, KY, which culminated 12 years of service at this installation, he served as the Acting Senior Commander for the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell.
Following retirement from the US Army, General Brower served as the Military Advisor in Residence at Austin Peay State University, helping to serve over 2,800 Military Affiliated Students. He also served as the Chief of Staff for Governor Lee’s Unified Command Group, which was responsible for coordination of all state-level efforts tied to the COVID-19 pandemic response across the state of Tennessee.
