His grandfather’s service dates back to the early 1900’s. “Both of my grandfathers enlisted in the U.S. military during WWII; one in the U.S. Navy Reserve and the other in the U.S. Army.”
Meet Capt. Brandon Mark, the 11th ADA Brigade Judge Advocate. Capt. Mark is of Chinese descent and grew up in Sacramento, Calif., where the legacy of his fatherly figures inspired his desire to serve.
“I grew up believing military service was natural for young men to do,” he says. His grandfather’s service dates back to the early 1900’s. “Both of my grandfathers enlisted in the U.S. military during WWII; one in the U.S. Navy Reserve and the other in the U.S. Army.”
He also grew up experiencing military culture through his father who retired as United States Marine Corps Officer. When asked how their legacy has impacted him, he explained “my grandfather always encouraged me to get out and do some type of job when I was a teenager. I think having work experience (not in an office) as a teenager is important for a teenager’s development – if you don’t work, you don’t eat. If you want to improve your situation, then you’ll have to work for it.”
At 14 years old, he was able to participate in his first boot camp experience at Camp Pendleton, Calif. This summer program focused on physical fitness and fun activities. “It was exhausting but solidified my interest in military service,” he said.
Later, he commissioned through Army ROTC as a second lieutenant at the University of California at Davis in 2008. When asked what he enjoys about his career, the Judge Advocate says “solving complex issues, supporting kinetic strikes when deployed and conducting key leader engagements with interagency and coalition partners while CONUS/OCONUS is also rewarding.”
On his free time, he enjoys learning skills (not attorney related) and doing home improvement stuff. “Sometimes you’ll find yourself OCONUS with a small team, and having experience with carpentry, electrical, plumbing is invaluable when you have a no fail mission so I firmly believe in developing your skillset so you can add value no matter the task.”
Capt. Mark says he reflects on this month “as a reminder that we need to keep on keeping on; do better and be better than yesterday. A lot of grandparents made sacrifices to make this country great.”

The service of Asians, Pacific Islanders and Native Hawaiians before and during World War II, paved the way for future generations of men and women to join what would become in 1948, a desegregated U.S. military.
After a year’s long deployment to the Middle East Soldiers with Alpha Battery, 1st Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery are headed home to Fort Bragg, N.C. Amid heightened tensions in the region and a global pandemic these fine men and women’s unwavering commitment to the mission contributed immensely to our command’s success during this historical deployment. While they won’t receive a traditional welcome home ceremony we highly encourage family members to welcome home our troops within the current guidelines of the installation. Job well done, swift and sure!
The "Fort Bliss Stay Home, Work Safe Order" remains in effect for all personnel assigned to, residing on, and/or working on Fort Bliss.
We know that the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for everyone. During the last town hall, we mentioned that we would reassess the Fort Bliss order around mid-May and are currently reviewing our Stay Home, Work Safe order. The "Fort Bliss Stay Home, Work Safe Order" remains in effect for all personnel assigned to, residing on, and/or working on Fort Bliss. We continue to adhere to DoD directives and CDC guidelines, to include city and state orders. We will make our decisions about reopening Fort Bliss facilities with guidance from the Department of the Army, the medical community and our El Paso partners. We will post developing information on the Fort Bliss Garrison and the 1st Armored Division social media pages as the situation continues to evolve. We appreciate your patience and we will get through this difficult time together. Please continue to provide us with your feedback. -Fort Bliss Senior Leaders
