Episode 31: Brad Thomas


Brad Thomas served in the United States Army from 1990-2010.  Brad served 8 years in  3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. During October of 1993, Brad served in Operation Gothic Serpent with 3rd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment in Mogadishu, more commonly referred to as Black Hawk Down.  Brad then served 12 years in Delta Force, a Tier 1 Special Operations group. While serving in the Army Brad received  2 Combat Infantry Badges, 4 Bronze stars with 2 valor designations, 2 Joint service commendation with 2 valor designations, Special Forces tab, Ranger tab, High Altitude Low Opening parachutist, Jumpmaster, Foreign Jump Wings. Brad Thomas left the Army in 2010 and became lost with what he wanted to do in his life. In 2017 Brad's wife had mentioned since he played music all the time why didn't he do anything with it. That same year Thomas met up with Jason Everman in New York and by July 2017 the band Silence & Light formed. In January 2019 the band began to record their first album in Van Nuys, California. By October 2019 they had released several songs online and by December of 2019 the band released their first album "Volume One". Silence and Light are determined to help veterans and soldiers alike, not only with their music, but with the money that they make from the band. Please help me in welcoming Brad Thomas, retired Master Sergeant and guitarist for Silence and Light.
