Lance Corporal Brian Chase Hopper









United States Marine Corps
K.I.A. Operation Iraqi Freedom - January 26, 2005


Dear Mr. DeAngelis,

Thank you again for contacting me. I have attached some pictures of Brian just so you can see what Brian was all about. One picture is of Brian as a young boy with a bruise on his arm from his first shotgun. He learned quick not to hold it like that anymore. Another picture of Brian as a young boy was when his older brother, Patrick, giving Brian a high-and-tight hair cut. It looks like Brian wanted to be a Marine for a long time. The other picture of Brian is of him in Iraq. This picture was taken by his brother, Patrick. They were together for about three months in Iraq. I don't know if I told you this before but Patrick escorted Brian home. I can't imagine what this must have taken but I am very proud of both of them.

 Thank you so much for what you do, the world would be a much better place with more people like you.

 Rob Hopper
