    Good lad. That takes a lot of guts, but then no one ever said the USMC were short of those.

    I'll agree on the inspiring.

    But how is he going to be employed?
     
  4. I'm sure Cpl Bradford will inspire others who are injured and I wish him the very best of luck. I trust VP Biden had the very great honour of meeting Cpl Bradford.
    Many congratulations on your Son's passing out parade, ever the proud Father.
     
  5. As a mentor. Helping those coping with less or worse? problems how to come to terms with the WHY meand other factors I think.

    Good on him, one so young to lose so much but come back fighting to help others like himself.
     
  6. He'll soon leave Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, to work with other wounded Marines at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

    He will be assigned to the East Battalion of the USMC Wounded Warrior Regiment Linky
