A memorial service has been announced for, 2008 HHS grad, Brandon Pickering.
A group of Pvt. Brandon Pickering's family and friends organized a memorial/prayer service for Saturday, April 16, 2011, from 10am – 1pm at the Highlands Middle School Gym. The service will give family, friends and the Fort Thomas community an opportunity to pay their respects. It is very likely that formal services will not take place for a couple weeks as there may be services at bases where Brandon was stationed.
Pickering died April 10 in Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Landstuhl, Germany, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his unit with small arms fire and a rocket propelled grenade in Wardak province, Afghanistan, April 8.
He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 4th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Polk, La.
