“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

Brandon or "Cletus" was known in the P-3 and Navy community as a wonderful and caring Officer. He was a selfless and kind man. He was a P-3 NFO and Mission Commander for many years in the Navy. He also served on the USS Abraham Lincoln as a "Shooter." It was one of his favorite jobs. Brandon was always willing to go the extra mile for his enlisted sailors and was proud to serve along side everyone. He is survived by his wife and two beautiful children. He is missed but not forgotten. He lives on in our memories and we are forever grateful for his 22 years of service and sacrifice for our country.
