U.S. Army First Lieutenant Brian Bradshaw, 24, of Steilacoom, Washington, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Airborne Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based in Fort Richardson, Alaska, died in Kheyl, Afghanistan, on June 25th, 2009, from wounds suffered when insurgents detonated a roadside bomb near his vehicle. He is survived by his parents, Paul and Mary, and brother Robert.

This is from our own CrossFit Southie member Lisa Bolos:

I just wanted to share this.  I went through ROTC with Brian and his mom taught nursing at our school.  It really was difficult to learn of his death.  When we all joined ROTC around the start of the war, I don’t think we really thought that we would ever lose any of our classmates.  Thanks for letting me share.
