Army Pfc. Brandon Sapp was a machine gunner assigned to the 1st Calvary Division from Fort Hood Texas when the vehicle he was driving was hit by a homemade bomb in Najif. Brandon was 21 years old. The last thing his father, John Sapp, told him was that he loved him, and that Brandon was his hero.
Pfc. Brandon was nominated by his father during the National RAM Military Hero contest. The winner and their ‘hero’ are invited to Las Vegas for the ACM Awards and will meet Country Artist and US Army veteran Craig Morgan at the ACM Salute to the Military on March 31st.
John Sapp tells of how his son, Brandon Sapp was his hero. “He loved his country and he died for his country. He just wanted to go after the bad guy and make his country a little bit safer.”
“Freedom isn’t free, it comes with a price. He’ll always be my hero.” ~ John Sapp
Brandon was posthumously awarded The Purple Heart, The Bronze Star and Good Conduct Medal.
