Army Sergeant Bradley Beste was killed Friday when a bomb went off near his vehicle during combat operations.
Beste was a 2002 graduate of Neuqua Valley High School.
Christine Chapman has known the Beste family for about 15 years. She says she remembers Bradley Beste as a quiet man who talked about how much he enjoyed the military.
And Beste's former wrestling coach (Mick Ruettiger) remembers him as someone whose "work ethic was beyond compare."
Beste was assigned to the First Cavalry Regiment, First Armored Division, which is based in Germany. He was on his second tour of duty in Iraq when he was killed
