I am a former worker with WHS a field activity for the SECDEF at the Pentagon. I retired in 2009 after 25 years working at the Pentagon. I was at the PNT bus stop that day the plane hit the building. When I heard that Brady had passed in the event I was heart broken. I want you to know I did not know him but only for a short time...two weeks to be exact. We had previously participated in a seminar in West Virginia together and exchanged numbers upon course completion. You could see that Mr. Howell was the promise and enlightenment of America. His kind words that he said to me toward the end of the seminar will stay with me forever. I had a bracelet made in his honor - it is put on each September 11. Brady is in a better place now. RIP Never Forget Respectfully, John Bastide

Brady was a true friend, who will be forever missed by his family and friends. I knew Brady when he was with the boy scouts in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints Syracuse Ward.

To the Howell Family;

While I did not know Brady, I do know his brother, good man, excellent family member. I am sure Brady was much like him, a huge lost to all of us, especially when we need more people like him to help us during these trying times.

May God Bless the Family, and well as all of us.

To the family of Brady Howell:

I remember that day as though it were yesterday — the fear for so many that I knew. When the support of a "remembrance bracelet" was offered, I sent in my check with the anticipation of having one individual's family to remember and pray for always. When I received my silver cuff with Brady's name, I wore it every day until the first anniversary. Now, each year, I wear it on the anniversary date and pray that some of the pain of your loss has subsided. I know it will never go away, yet I will continue to remember him and wear with pride my "memory bracelet" of an American with honor and dedication to his country. After reading the messages on this site, I realize that I was very fortunate to have received Brady's name on my bracelet.

I have been so touched since 9-11 by how Brady's wife, Liz, a wonderful high-school friend, has devoted her life and heart to making a difference around the world. Her example has made a difference in my life.  Thank you, Liz. I love you!

Liz, it was an honor to lead folks to perform community service in memory of Brady. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and him.

Liz, I was a classmate of Brady's at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He was also in my Presidential Management Intern class. You and Brady are always in my thoughts and prayers. I still live and work in Washington and every time I drive by the Pentagon I am reminded of this tragic day and the loss of one of Maxwell's most promising public servants. One of my clearest memories of Brady was a class assignment and discussion we participated in together regarding what our nation should do in the midst of a bio-terror attack. Brady and I were assigned to play the role of the FBI and it was at that point I realized his true intellect and talent for public service. He is truly missed.

Liz, Brady was an awesome guy. I had the opportunity to serve in the Canary Islands with him and he was one of the few good ones. He is truly missed.

My husband, Ivan Ashcraft, grew up with Brady. He was well loved and well respected. People viewed him as someone who would change the world for good!

We will never forget 9-11 and the wonderful people who lost their lives that day. Our heart still goes out to Brady's wife, Liz.

*** Posted by Stephanie Ashcraft on 2009-09-11 ***

Liz, I'm not sure if you remember us. You and Brady were in one of our first student wards at USU. My husband was a sign language interpreter. We just returned from New York recently. There we visited the World Trade Center Memorial. I have been thinking about you a lot since returning home. The memories we have of Brady are funny, funny, funny! What a great sense of humor! He and Barry liked to talk sports. It wasn't hard to see the love you had for one another. What a great couple ... and Brady ... what a great man!

*** Posted by Barry and Shilo Utley on 2009-08-10 ***

I don't know Brady or his family, but my thoughts are with you all!

*** Posted by Priscilla on 2009-04-27 ***

On the 7th anniversary of the attack on the Pentagon, my thoughts have been with you, Brady. Sitting in your apartment on that tragic day, with your wife, waiting for your call, was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. Liz is a strong, compassionate, and courageous woman. I know that much of that is because of you and the love you gave her. The stories never end of what a great young man you were. I am honored to have known you and grateful for the friendship of your beautiful wife.

I don't know Brady's family, but I'm so sorry for his loss. I worked with him at his first presidential internship. We worked that the Chief of Naval Personnel's Office. He was so smart, one of those people that you never forget. He and I had an opportunity to brief the admiral concerning a report. Brady was very well thought of, I wasn't. He ensured that I was allowed to present a substantial part of the brief. That was the type of person he was. I looked at the list of people who died on 9-11 and prayed that I wouldn't see anyone that I knew. When I saw his photo on the front of The Navy Times, I was saddened, and I'm actually crying as I write this. When we said "see ya" that last time, I always thought that I would see him again. I'd walk thru the Pentagon or Crystal City one day and see this young man--even work for him. I wouldn't have minded. That was the running joke in our office. We'd all retire from the Navy one day and work for Brady. Brady, you are missed. God bless.

Thank you Brady for the legacy you have left all of us! I treasure the friendship that we had, and my heart, prayers and thoughts continue to go out to Liz and your family. On this 6th anniversary of Sept 11th, I hope that we can remember the good in the lives of those who have left us, and not focus on the negative aspects of the attacks. God is mindful of us. God bless America!

It was an honor to carry your name pinned next to my heart during our 5K memorial/pride run on NAS Sigonella, Italy this morning. You are not forgotten, your name was remembered and recognized. I am a Senior Chief in the US Navy and the proud American running next to me this morning was an Admiral we along with about 1000 other patriots ran at sunrise information to make sure that everyone will never forget your sacrifice. You made a difference.

*** Posted by John B on 2007-09-11 ***

Brady, I am doing a family newsletter. For July I thought that I would put some patriotic quotes and photos in the newsletter. As I considered patriotism and what it means, your name came to mind. I did a Google for your name and found this site. I have fond memories of growing up down the street from your family and spending time at your house. In school I remember you as one of the few people who was nice to everyone. You seemed unconcerned with who was popular and who wasn't. You are a great person who has left behind a great legacy. May God bless your family. You are missed.

I remember Brady from Rick College. We attended a Political Science class together. He was very bright and kind. He never had a bad word for anybody. He would even help others with their class projects if they had problems. It seems horrible that his young life was cut short and he never had the chance to have children with his wife, Liz. How horrible and cruel life can be.... Let us all pray that things will get better.... God bless the 911 victims....

You were the greatest uncle I have ever had. I love you so much, and miss you so much.

*** Posted by Lexi Howell on 2007-01-20 ***

I just remember Brady as a kid was always excited about something. I found myself thinking of him and Liz today and of how Sept. 11, 2001 changed my family. Not directly like it did them, but indirectly as we decided to join the Air Force and do something to support our country in its efforts to fight terrorism. Our lives and our perspective will ever be changed. We can all do something, we will do what we can to make a difference. Thanks to Brady for helping to inspire us!
