Mabry never wanted to be anything other than a soldier from the time he was little.  He joined the Army right after graduation.  Mabry was a fun-loving young man who lived his life to the fullest. Mab loved the outdoors, riding dirt bikes, off-roading in his Jeep, horseback riding and flying helicopters.  His humor, strong sense of friendship, encouragement and compassion touched many lives.  Mabry was dedicated to his family, friends and his brothers-in-arms.  He loved serving his country and those he served with.  A friend quoted Mabry as saying, “If you want to learn something in this life, learn how to live!”
