Sgt. 1st Class Bryan E.
Sgt. 1st Class Bryan E. Hall
32 years old from Elk Grove, California
1st Battalion, 67th Armored Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th
Infantry Division
April 10, 2009
U.S. Army

Bryan Hall received three Army commendation medals, as well as good
Army achievement, good conduct and war on terrorism medals. But his
family didn’t learn about them until after his death. “He was such a
humble man,” said his mother, Betty. “He was a special person, he
never boasted about his accomplishments or was arrogant and pompous,
he did his job,” his sister, Kristi, said. “When he was done with his
job, he came home and he was a father, a husband, a son and a brother.
He embodied what I think every soldier would want to be.”

Sgt. 1st Class Hall was a junior in High School when he signed up for
an Army early entry program. After he graduated he attended one year
of college before enlisting.

Bryan Hall, and five other soldiers, was killed on April 10, 2009 when
a suicide bomber detonated a truck packed with explosives at a police
station in Mosul, Iraq. Betty Hall said an Army commander told her
that by ordering his soldiers to fire on the suicide bomber’s truck,
her son probably saved many lives by preventing the attacker from
entering the police compound.
