Positions marked with a “star” (*) below are voting members of the Board.


President*

Bradley “Slim” Settle

Slim lives a stress-free life in Cincinnati, Ohio. He’s currently working the night shift at a local factory doing pharmaceutical packaging but always keeps an eye on international opportunities to do private security contracting. Sometimes he goes jogging…but only sometimes.

Slim graduated from Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati, Ohio then went on to serve in the US Air Force from 1997 to 2004. He earned the Small Arms Expert Marksmanship Ribbon and was Top Graduate of the USAF’s Ground Combat Skills training course. Slim served with the Security Forces on multiple deployments throughout the Middle East and Asia. He continues to pass on the skills learned in the military by conducting several public training clinics throughout the year on topics ranging from ruckmarches to orienteering.

You’ll find Slim volunteering at Revere’s Riders events of all types, the NRA Annual Meeting Youth Day, and activities honoring our nation’s veterans. When not volunteering, he does his best to stay WELL REGULATED, take new classes, and learn new skills.
Term expires end of 2024


Vice President*

Phil Brown

Growing up in rural Iowa I was always around firearms and hunting. Learning at an early age from my father the destructive power and the respect needed for those firearms. Mostly in Iowa it was hunting and maybe some shooting of sparrows out of the barn.

Around 2010 my wife and I became active in Project Appleseed and became rifle instructors with me attaining Designated Shoot Boss level. We spent many weekends each year travelling in Indiana teaching students rifle marksmanship and American history. While dealing with Marty’s ovarian cancer we transitioned out of Project Appleseed and help found Reveres Riders. I mainly wanted to practice other disciplines that Revere’s Riders offered such as pistol and rifle.
Term expires end of 2024
