LcPl Brandon Mitchell

LcPl Brandon Mitchell, age 22, is my hero.

He has been in the Marine Corp for 3 years and has been deployed to Iraq since Jan. 26. His duty station is Camp Pendleton CA. He attended Xenia High School, and Graduated from the Greene County Career Center in 1999. His wife Rachael Mitchell will be celebrating their 2 year anniversary with there 7 month old son Vinson Mitchell here in Xenia Oh. His mother, Loretta Mitchell, and stepdad, Dick Lyons, who are also from Xenia, are hoping for a safe return home soon. His grandparents MR. and Mrs. Vinson Francis keep Brandon in their prayers as well as his entire family. We last spoke with him on Apr. 3rd. He is doing well and is in good spirits. His only request was to keep mail coming with lots of pictures of his baby boy.

For all that he is doing for his country and for his family he will always be a hero to his wife, mother, stepdad, and his whole family. We are very proud of him
