Bradford's father was in charge of handling the American Forces Network (AFN) radio and television station on base in Yokota and due to this posting, Bradford has attended elementary schools in Japan. Shortly after Bradford finished the fifth grade, his father was posted to Honolulu to serve at Hickam Airbase as a radio operator. Bradford transferred to local schools in the area and graduated from Punahou Academy with a 3.1 GPA. He attended the University of Hawaii as a part of the ROTC program and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in both Hawaiian Studies and Management Studies. Service Record: With accordance to his father's wishes, Bradford joined the Air Force as a radio operator, returning to Yokota to manage the AFN on base. After three years of serving in Japan, Bradford was transferred to the Green Zone in Iraqi as the Air Force attache at the American Embassy where he served for three years. It was here that Bradford made himself known to the XCOM project by protecting the lives of those in the Embassy while simultaneously ordering troops in the Green Zone to repel a 13-day insurgent attack. Following the Battle of the Green Zone in 2008, Bradford was honored by President Obama in 2010 with a Navy Cross at the White House; the XCOM project quickly makes contact with Bradford during his posting in Kosovo in 2013. Since then, Bradford has been assisting the XCOM project by organizing the XCOM base alongside Dr Shen and prioritizing research with Dr Vahlen.
