From the 1940 Lucky Bag:
RICHARD BRADLEY CAMPBELL
Kansas City, Missouri
"Brad" is a typical realist. No dreams haunt his day to day existence. To him the Navy is a tough job and you'll find him plugging at it in the shadows of a "Juice Tree." "Soupy" has the proverbial stubbornness of the mules from his state. If you want an argument to go on to eternity, "Brad" will give it to you. The golf course is "Brad's" idea of a sportsman's haven, and when a young lady isn't around to distract him, he sometimes threatens par. He relaxes each week-end in the company of an attractive drag. The road may be rough for this Kansas City Kid, but he has what it takes.
Brad was lost in a USN Lockheed PV-1 Ventura patrol bomber crash on the Marquesas Keys Bombing & Gunnery Range on September 21, 1943. The aircraft was assigned to VB-2 OTU-1 and was based at NAS Lake City.
Jack Brown ’40 was also lost in this crash.
