Veterans Day: Brian Hall

The image above was included in an article that appeared in the Douglas County Sentinel on Sunday, October 2, 2005 regarding FBCLS member Brian Hall. From the article:

Brian Hall, 30, was wounded September 30th by an IED blast to his Humvee. He received a head injury and shrapnel wounds to the face. He was medivaced to Landstuhl, Germany, and then sent to Water Reed in Washington, D.C.

Hall was a Combat Medic in the 108 Calvary, and served in the Army for four years. He is part of the Georgia Army National Guard 48th Brigade out of Ft. Stewart. Loved ones say he joined the military because he felt he should serve his country after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He also believed God had a purpose for him in Iraq as a medic, where he treated soldiers and civilians. He especially enjoyed helping the kids; often handing out candy and small toys along with his medical treatments.

Hall and his wife, Jessica, are members of Lithia Spring First Baptist Church. Jessica is a teacher at Turner Middle School, and they have an 8-month-old child.
