Ryan Braman during a visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center Sept. 16. Wickstrom and Command Sgt. Maj. Robert Jenks were at Walter Reed to meet with wounded Soldiers from the division’s combat brigades from New York, New Jersey and New England aligned for training with the 42nd Infantry Division. Braman, a Soldier from the 101st Airborne Division from Lafayette, Ind. wears a Boston Red Sox baseball t-shirt, which caught the attention of Wickstrom, an Upton, Mass. resident.
