Bradley Becker, center, son of Marietta High School graduates, stands with President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence, as they review troops on the East Front of the Capitol in Washington, Friday during the presidential inauguration ceremony.
Accompanying Trump down the Capitol steps and providing the first military salute to the new commander-in-chief was the son of two Marietta High School graduates.
Maj. Gen. Bradley Becker, 53, son of Judith Sprague Becker, and Donald Becker, graduates of the classes of 1958 and 1957, has spent the past two years serving as the commanding general for the military district of Washington D.C.
“I don’t think when he started out that he thought he would make a career of the Army but to see him today on the Capitol steps in between the Trumps and Pence family was very exciting,” said Judy. “And when he gave President Trump the first official military salute, I couldn’t have been more proud of him.”
The two Marietta graduates now live in Sacramento, Calif.
