A new Brightway Insurance office, Brightway, The Pacific Patriot Agency, is officially open this week. This past Independence Day Weekend, the Greater Sacramento (Roseville) franchise made headlines at home and across the nation for plans to help fund "The Pacific Patriot Foundation." It's a venture the franchise is launching that will fund relief for veterans, the homeless and even mission work in Haiti.

Click now to see the original story which first aired this past weekend on CBS13 News in Sacramento.


United States Marine Corps veteran Brandon Murphy is leading the ownership group of Brightway, The Pacific Patriot Agency. The 24-year-old Bear River High School alum, along with fellow California natives Ben Foster, 43, and Tyler Hunter, 31, decided to take their entrepreneurial spirits and bring them together for a common goal: To help others in any way they need. The plan is to use a portion of the earnings from their new franchise to launch The Pacific Patriot Foundation; a non-profit benefitting everything from our veterans in need to mission work beyond our borders. 

Foster served for more than 20 years in the Air National Guard, including a two-and-a-half-year mobilization that had him stationed at Balad Air Base in Iraq, 40 miles north of Baghdad. The United States Air Force awarded Foster an Air Force Commendation Medal for service during Operation Noble Eagle and Operation Southern Watch in Iraq. Foster holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management from the University of Nebraska. 

The common bond in Brightway, The Pacific Patriot Agency is Hunter. Earning a Certificate in Culinary Arts from American River College, Hunter helped Murphy get his first job out of the military working in sales for ADT Security. Hunter and Foster met more than a decade ago as they began to work on projects involving Green Energy technologies.
