Cpl Brett L Lundstrom was born on June 12, 1983 in Vermillion, SD, to Ed and Doyla Lundstrom. He was the only brother to Ed Lundstrom, Jr.

Brett's dad joined the Marines after he graduated college in May 1985 and went active duty. Brett and Eddy were Marine Brats, moving base to base and school to school.

Brett was taking college classes in New Jersey, where big Ed was stationed, when 9-11 happened. He made his mind up at that time to withdraw from the Platoon Leaders Class and enlist in the Marines. Doyla, his Mom, talked him into taking 2 more semesters of classes and when he would not give up, Doyla let him enlist in Jan. 2003. He was deployed to Fallujah, Iraq on Sept 18, 2005 and was killed in the line of duty there on Jan. 7, 2006.

Brett graduated from Brooke Point HS in Stafford, VA, in June 2001. Brett was a real life Angel until called home by our creator. He is now riding on his Mom and Eddy's shoulders watching over them.
