Legacies Alive is working with our Gold Star mother, Carol Berberich from Los Angeles, CA, to honor her son with re-interment at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. Carol’s son, Brian Piercy, was killed in action in Afghanistan July 19, 2010. We have raised the funds and have the approvals to re-inter Brian to Arlington at a date to be determined later this year.
Staff Sergeant Brian Francis Piercy thrived in the Army. He was known as a calm, composed and observant leader with a huge heart and an unyielding commitment to his soldiers. His leadership skills and attention to detail accelerated his rapid promotion to the rank of Staff Sergeant. On his second and final deployment, Brian was in the Arghandab River Valley of Afghanistan. He was killed on July 19, 2010 while leading his squad on a dismounted patrol.
