Brett joined the TX Army National Guard in 2003 during his senior year in high school. During New Year’s celebrations in 2005, he received word he would deploy to Iraq for the first time in just a few short days. He spent 2005 in Bagdad, Iraq serving in the Engineering Brigade. Afterwards, he served with standard drills and annual trainings with the exception of a busy hurricane season in 2008 where he assisted the recovery of Hurricane Ike in Houston. From November 2009 to August 2010, Brett served as a Cav Scout stationed in Erbil, Iraq. Afterwards, he secured a full time National Guard position at Fort Walters outside of Fort Worth, TX and by 2012 had a position working DA Photo at Camp Mabry until his time was completed in 2014.

Brett was loyal to everyone and especially to his friends and family. He was an honest tradesman and enjoyed creating art through building things with his hands. When initially meeting Brett he was quiet, but once he was comfortable around you he was the comedian in the room.

He was an amazing father that wanted the best for his family. His boys said the coolest thing their Dad did was build Lego sets better than the instructions that came in the box.
