He's from Mcdonough where he grew up with his mother and two sisters. Brandon was a great kid so loving and fun. He always was the man of the house caring for his sisters and mother. Even when he was young he was taking care of the house and being the protector so it was no surprise to me he grew up to be a soldier continuing to be the man of the house to better himself and this country for his daughter. I love you Brandon and I will always will!
