Brad was a 2 tour Iraqi war veteran. A marine... ooorah!
He was a husband.
He was a father to a beautiful baby girl, and another baby is on the way...
Brad was a true American hero - on a traffic stop, then in pursuit of a hit and run suspect that blew thru the accident scene. The above mentioned asshole that ended up running, hiding and killing him.
I've done work, in the past, with the Philly Police Survivors Fund. This time tho, I knew the fallen...
Brad played hockey on a team called the Slugs with my good friend's husband. I've been to games. I've cheered Brad on. I've shared a beer (or 2... or more) with him afterwards (and sometimes before).
Slugs game at the Comcast Spectacor/Well Fargo Center on the Flyer's Ice- 2010
