Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – All their lives, the Ragle brothers, Bradley J. and Brandon J. V., said they have found a way to stick together.
For the last five years, they have been chasing one another around, from Phoenix, AZ, to Indiana to Fort Campbell, KY. For the time being, at least, the journey has found them together again in Afghanistan, both serving as Army cavalry scouts with the 101st Airborne Division at Forward Operating Base Connolly as part of Troop A (Attack Troop), 1st Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment. Bradley, 27, a sergeant, is assigned to 2nd Platoon, while Brandon, 22, a specialist, serves with 1st Platoon.
“It’s outstanding,” Bradley said of being deployed with his younger brother. “My best friend is in a tent three feet away.”
