WNY Native Featured In Call Of Duty Black Ops
Okay so I wouldn't just honor all the Veterans on Veteran's Day with just a picture of Thom Tran, but since he is a good friend and he is in the new video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops" I figure I could try and tie it all together into one whole post.
So first I'd like to say thank you to all the Veteran's around the country and the world. Thank you for all that you have done and will do in the future. Thank you to all the current men and women serving our country right now.
So here's a quick bio about Thom:
Thom Tran grew up in Cheektowaga, NY before joining the United States Army in 1997. Thom deployed overseas in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He was wounded in combat in 2003 while in Iraq, and retired from the Army in 2005.
As a civilian, Thom worked for several radios stations in Buffalo, NY before moving to Los Angeles in 2008 to pursue standup comedy, where he's found success in the Los Angeles Comedy Scene. When not on tour doing standup comedy, Thom works as a military consultant for Dagger Media Group, a veteran owned and staffed company that provides consulting and production services in Hollywood.
Thom and DMG have most recently worked on the video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops", in which Thom is one of the characters (actually, several of them). He continues to perform in and around Los Angeles at The Hollywood improv, The Comedy Store, and The Laugh Factory. You can videos and clips on Thom on his website, www.thomtran.com, or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thomtran.officialpage
So "Call of Duty:Black Ops" is the fastest selling game ever and I am very proud of Thom for being able to stand still long enough for them to scan him!!
Here's a couple pics if you'd like to see more from the "Call of Duty:Black Ops" release party go to Thom's website.
