Cpl. Brad A. Davis, 21, of Garfield Heights, Ohio, died April 22 near Baghdad, Iraq, of wounds sustained   in an IED explosion. Cpl. Davis was a member of the 82nd Brigade Support Battalion assigned to the Third Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division. This is the third Paratrooper of Third Brigade to die in action since they deployed to Iraq in December of 2008.

Cpl. Davis was on his second deployment to Iraq and served as a senior truck driver, working with the 2/505th Parachute Infantry Battalion.

The Fayetteville Observer quotes LTC Zeisman, CO of the 2/505th:

“Cpl. Davis was an exceptional junior leader who had the experience and knowledge gained from two combat deployments with the battalion over the last two years…” “He was the model paratrooper every commander strived to have in his unit,” Zeisman said. “Physically fit, mentally tough, and well disciplined. This heartfelt loss will be felt by the entire Task Force ‘2 Panther’ family, both near and far, but his legacy will remain, measured by the high caliber of soldiers he fought beside on a daily basis.”

Cpl. Davis has served in the Army since August, 2006 and was with the 2/505th in Iraq in the 2007 deployment.

He is survived by his father Robert Davis of Strongsville, Ohio and his mother, Theresa K. Davis of Garfield Heights, Ohio and siblings Jennifer, Robert and Becky.

Pray for the family during this difficult time, and pray for LTC Zeismann and the troopers of the 2/505th and the 82nd Support BN and Third BDE.

Our prayers go out to the family of Corporal Davis and are always with Lt Col Zeismann and the troopers of the 2/505th, 3 BDE. My son is assigned to HHC, 2/505th, 3 BDE. God Bless them all and may he keep them safe. K. Falk (MSG/Ret)

When are they gonna pull the troops outta that meat grinder. Anyways, Brad, you died in glory and that is better to die in bed of cancer or heart disease. Brave lad, farewell and God Bless you!
