PARIS – Army Pfc. Brady J. Thayer has been awarded the Combat Medical Badge in recognition of the role performed by medical service members assigned or attached to infantry units.

Medical soldiers serving in infantry units are honored because they share the same hazards and hardships of combat, often sustaining wounds and casualties as infantry soldiers in the field of battle. The badge is a portrait of courage, which recognizes the sacrifice and heroism portrayed by medics serving along side infantry soldiers.

Thayer is the son of Kevin M. and Lynette M. Thayer of South Paris. He is a 2003 graduate of the Bridgton Learning Center.
