Hello, my name is Bryan.

I enjoy playing my bass guitar, reading, watching TV and listening to music. The reason I joined Wire of Hope was after talking to other members and the positive vibe they experienced made me think “I’d like that too.”

I was born in Minnesota and lived there ‘til 1981. In 1981, my father and 6 months later my grandfather passed away. We moved to Southern California to be closer to a brother of mine.

I graduated high school in 1988, went to trade school in Arizona, which I graduated from in 1990. I worked in Southern California as a smog tech until 1996. I decided I wanted to go to college, so I joined the Navy to earn college tuition.

Before I joined the Navy, I traveled through Europe for a month and then went to a family reunion in Finland. I really enjoy seeing the world, which is part of the reason why I enjoyed the Navy.

In the Navy, I was stationed in San Diego my first four years. On my second West Pac, while on board on the USS Tarawa, the USS Cole was attacked. Our ship was the first to come to its aid. After that deployment, I came back and then flown back to the Gulf to meet up with the USS Rainier. When I got back from that West Pac, we pulled into Bremerton, Washington. That was September 10th. Yes, the day before the 9/11 attack. In total, I went on 4 West Pacs, served on two ships and did one tour of shore duty before I got out. I was a 1st class Boatswain’s Mate (SW/AW).

Anyway, I hope to hear from ya. Can’t wait to hear about your life story.
