It is with great sadness that we received news about the sudden passing of Dr. Brad Forch. Brad served the U.S. Army Research Laboratory as a senior research scientist in ballistics, where we had the opportunity to work with him as DSIAC”s first Contracting Officer’s Representative. Brad maintained regular contact with DSIAC ever since its beginnings and has been a tremendous supporter and advocate. His dedicated work ethic and genuine concern for DoD research is a testament to him as a person and his passions as a scientist. He will most certainly be missed.
