About me

Matthew Bradford grew up as a Kentucky Wildcat fan and lived in Kentucky until High School when he moved to Dinwiddie, Virginia with his father. On September 11, 2001, just a freshman in high school, he watched the terrorist attacks on America’s soil and knew at that moment he wanted to join the military after graduating. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and went to Parris Island, SC for recruit training and then went to the School of Infantry of Camp Geiger, NC where he would be assigned to 2nd Battalion 3rd Marines Echo Company 2nd Platoon in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. In September 2006 the unit would be deployed to Haditha, Iraq.  

Trust me! I will boost your communication skills.
"Can't" is NOT in my vocabulary!

“I may not have vision but that does not mean I do not have a vision”
