Friends remember fallen soldier

July 29, 2005

Worth County- Thirty year old Specialist Gus Brunson was one of four members of the 48th Brigade who were killed Sunday when a roadside detonated near their Humvee.

Joshua Reynolds was friends with Brunson for more than 16 years. He is one of several people who have created a scrapbook entitled Memories of Gus. It's a collection of stories and letters from family and friends.

"He was the best friends anybody could ask for, and I didn't consider him a friend, I considered him a brother. He was a true hero. He died fighting for his country, but mainly he died fighting for his kids," says Reynolds.

Reynolds is also creating a video of hundreds of pictures taken by Brunson while he was in Iraq. There will be a farewell bonfire at Reynolds house in Sumner Friday night at 8:30. He lives at 164 South Sumner Road.

Anyone with stories or pictures to contribute to the scrapbook email them to Joshua Reynolds at The subject of emails should be "Memories of Gus."
