Lance Cpl. Bravo of Elko, Nevada was a 2004 Elko High School graduate and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in August of 2003. Raul was offered the chance to join the Marine Corps detail at the White House but he turned it down because of his loyalty to his Marine buddies who were shipping out to Iraq. He spent seven months in Iraq in 2005 and upon his return to the United States, he was given a second opportunity to be sent to Washington. Again, he turned it down. He planned to serve in the Marines for eight years, then join the Metro Police Force in Henderson. He was the youngest of four children and was nicknamed "Chato," short for little. He was a class clown who enjoyed running, spoke Arabic and also made friends with many Iraqi soldiers. He was 21.
