Jim Bradley

  • Years of Service: May 1959 to May 1961
  • Awards: Solder of the month twice
  • Branch of Military: U.S. Army, Army Security Agency, Eritrea, East Africa
  • City of Residence: Palm Coast, since 1988
  • What I learned: It's better to give than to receive.

Bradley became known as "The Hot Dog Guy" in Palm Coast, selling hot dogs outside the former Sears for 17 years, raising more than $49,000 for charity before retiring in 2017. He has been part of American Legion Post 115 for 25 years.
