I just watched the same show Sherri watched (Garage Squad), it moved me a lot. I too looked up Brandon on the internet & led me to this site. I am so sorry for your loss, & thankful to your son/brother motivation for helping with other peoples freedoms he did not know. RIP Brandon & thank you for your service.
Brandon and I were friends in college in Communications class, he was one of of the most generous, adventurous, spirited daredevils I’ve ever known. I still have dreams about him and all the fun times we spent hanging out skydiving, having sushi, and exploring Chicago. He has inspired anyone he meets to be better. Rest in peace my friend.
