The Second Dragoons Foundation is proud to have made another contribution to the SSG Brian Freeman scholarship fund in 2016. This marks the 8th annual contribution by the Second Dragoons Foundation.

SSG Brian Freeman was killed in combat in Iraq in November of 2005 while on duty with the 3rd Squadron of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. SSG Freeman was killed when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device detonated near his dismounted patrol in Baghdad. Also killed were 1LT Justin S. Smith, SPC Robert C. Pope II, and PFC Mario A. Reyes.

The SSG Freeman scholarship was established by SSG Freeman’s family to provide college funding for one student per year who graduates from SSG Freeman’s former high school, Caledonia High School. Students compete for the scholarship by writing essays concerning what our country or military means to them.

SSG Freeman’s memory lives on through his family’s dedication to this scholarship and we are proud to be associated with this effort.
