Joshua T. Brazee was a computer whiz, and if he didn't make the machines sing and dance, he came close. "He could make them talk and squeak," said his father, Kevin. "He would step up (upgrade) the computers on his own." Brazee, 25, of Sand Creek, Mich., died May 23 in Qaim, Iraq, of non-combat-related injuries. He was based at Fort Carson. Brazee was a good student and played football in high school. After graduating in 1998, Brazee joined the Navy as a way to go to college. "He was looking for education to further him in life," said his father. "The Navy offered the best program." He was in the Navy for four years and tried to find a job in his hometown, to no avail. His father said at that point his son decided to re-enlist, this time in the Army. He planned to go to college and study computers and engineering after he finished his tour in Iraq. "That was something he was training to do through the Army," his father said. Brazee is also survived by his mother, Teresa.
