SSG Bryan Black was killed in action during an ambush while on a patrol in southwestern Niger. He died defending his brothers and protecting us here at home from the spread of terrorism. Bryan was assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Bragg, North Carolina and served as a Special Forces Medic on a Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha (SFOD-A). Bryan Black was an incredible man and was the very best this country has to offer. He had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, was a true disciple of Christ, and natural born leader. His competitive spirit drove the masteries of chess, poker, carpentry, stock trading, martial arts, medicine, and home repair. Despite his many talents and unbelievable achievements the only thing this humble man would ever brag about was his loving wife Michelle and their two young sons Ezekiel and Isaac, ages 11 and 9. He was a loyal guardian and loving teacher to Ezekiel who was diagnosed with autism, always pushing him past his obstacles in order to help him grow and give him a wonderful childhood. Bryan longed to see his two beautiful boys mature into the fine men they are on their way to becoming. He was an amazing father, guardian, and mentor, always ensuring his family followed Gods word and guiding his boys on Christ’s path to manhood.
