Brady Hammer
Brady Hammer
Brady James Hammer, 24, residing in El Paso, Texas, went to meet his maker July 28, 2013.
He made his grand entrance into this world Feb. 26, 1989, in Klamath Falls, Ore. From the beginning, it was evident that he had a strong spirit.
While still in high school, he enlisted in the military with the Army National Guard at the age of 17. In 2009, he was deployed to Iraq with C Troop 1-82nd Cav Squadron Operation Iraqi Freedom 2009-2010. He also served as a Wounded Warrior at Fort Bliss, El Paso, from 2011-2013. During the seven years Brady spent serving his country, he formed many bonds with his brothers in the armed forces.
He was known for his generous heart and amazing ability to make people laugh. He was a district bowling champion while in high school and when home on leave enjoyed Monte Carlo Bowling with family. He loved to put his mom on the phone while he sang her karaoke. He also enjoyed shooting guns, playing his guitar, dancing, country music and spending time with the people he loved.
Brady is survived by his mother Marie Hammer of Klamath Falls; his sisters Kayla King (Korey) of Oregon City, Ore., and Lacee Valentine of Grants Pass, Ore.; nephew Lucas Handley of Grants Pass; grandparents James Hammer and Sharon Hammer, both of Klamath Falls; several aunts, uncle and cousins; and many other family members and comrades of significant importance in his life.
He was preceded in death by his Aunt Christine Powell, his cousins Johnathan and Wade Hammer and great-grandparents.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park in Klamath Falls.
We would like to send a special thank you to Jason Ward for helping us in this time of sadness.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Brady James Hammer our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Brady. And to Brady it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for his service in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and for the selfless sacrifices he made for his country while serving with the U.S. Army. No greater love and patriotism is shown than a man dedicate his life in service to his country. Brady, you are a brave Army Warrior and a true Patriot. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Brady's family and loved ones.

James Maziraz, Commander, VFW Post 2238
