RIP, brother. I will always have a special place in my heart for anyone who ever served in 3/7 SFG (A). That's where I "grew up" in SF. My prayers go out to all of our brothers currently deployed and especially to the family and loved ones of those warriors gone from us too soon ... like SFC Bohle.

This hits home. I just found out that a friend of mine knows SFC Bohle. They shot on range 4 at Quantico a lot among other venues. My friend received a coin from him which was pretty cool. I blurred it out, but a nice coin nonetheless.

I was also told a scholarship fund was set up in honor of SFC Bohle at his High School. I found a link Here. (http://www.hometownglenburnie.com/news/Top_Stories/2009/09/26-29/Scholarship+will+honor+fallen+solider%0A.html) Rest in Peace SFC Bohle, and may your family find comfort in knowing you were doing what you loved.

Students who apply to an ROTC Program can apply for the Bradley Bohle Scholarship. The student must maintain a 2.0 GPA and must participate in an extra-curricular activity. This fall teachers at the school will be holding a candle sales fundraiser, with all the profits going to the scholarship fund. In the spring there will be a bull and oyster roast.

"We felt as though he is someone to look up to," Parks said. "We can't bring him back but we can honor him for the sacrifices he made for us."

Donations to the Bradley Bohle Scholarship Fund can be sent to North County High School, Attention: Linda Parks, 10 E. First Avenue, Glen Burnie, MD 21061.

In lieu of flowers the family is asking people to send money to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation at P.O. Box 13483, Tampa, FL 33681-3483.
