Please, as you go about your daily routines, remember this young American hero who did so much in his short time in life and pray for his wife, left behind with lost hopes of the future with him.

Sergeant Bradley’s story is the exact reason I want people to appreciate everything our military does- our service members fight in a war while we are safe in country going about our daily lives. Do not ever forget the sacrifice of Sergeant Mark Bradley, his family who is now mourning his loss, and the countless other lives changed by war.

Sergeant Bradley’s wife Samantha told how she wants her husband to be remembered.

“He was just a great friend to everybody. He was a wonderful son, the best brother that his family could’ve asked for, and not only was he my husband, he was definitely my best friend.”

Jack Bradley, Sergeant Bradley’s father, remembered his son as a “true patriot and a true hero and a true American.”

“He was doing exactly what he wanted to do,” Jack Bradley explained. “He loved it. He died in the service of his country in the proudest of traditions.”

Sergeant Bradley joined the Marine Corps several months after graduating from Cuba-Rushford High School in 2003. “He grew up in a military family,” said Jack Bradley, who is retired from the Air Force. “It was kind of a calling for him. He joined the Marine Corps. We encouraged him to.”

This was Sergeant Bradley’s first deployment to Afghanistan. He had previously completed four overseas tours of duty.
