Indiana ‘outdoorsman,’ Marine gains experience

Corporal Brent Graham, a field radio operator with Regimental Combat Team 7 and 21-year-old native of Clinton, Ind., has gained experience and even seen combat during his deployment to Helmand province, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. “Cpl. Graham is an extremely hard worker. That's why he was selected to go on RCT-7's last mission,” said Staff Sgt. Cedric Swan, the radio chief with RCT-7. “And once there, Graham rose to the challenge and represented himself and 7th Marines in an exceptional manner in the midst of eminent danger.”
