Pvt Brandon Scott Tobler
Birth: May 17, 1983
Portland
Multnomah County
Oregon, USA
Death: Mar. 22, 2003, Iraq

Army Pvt Tobler was assigned to the 671st Engineer Brigade, Portland, Oregon. Killed in a non-hostile vehicle accident. Tobler was killed when the humvee in which he was riding in crashed into the back of another vehicle during a blinding sandstorm while heading to Baghdad. Brandon loved drawing pictures of dinosaurs as a little boy and enclosing them in hand-made greeting cards to his family. He volunteered for the Army Reserve as a way to make money for college. The Franklin High School graduate dreamed of one day becoming a Portland Police officer. Before Brandon left home for the war in Iraq, he told his mother, "Don't worry, Mom, I'll be in the rear with the gear." "I want people to know he was truly a hero. He was really motivated to go over there and help," his uncle said. "And he paid the price. He is an only child, and his parents are devastated." Before leaving for Iraq, he worked in the inventory department of a Best Buy electronics store near his home. His family says he loved to ride his bike, hike on Portland's Mount Tabor and drink Beck's beer. He also possessed a masterful and hilarious ability to affect French, English and Scottish accents. (bio by: Brenda N)
