Braxton Bradford was a United States Marines captain from Georgia.

He was Les Dillon's superior officer, and trained him in preparation for the U.S. operation to retake Hawaii from the Empire of Japan throughout 1942 and 1943. He led his company onto the beaches of Oahu in the invasion in the summer of 1943. Captain Bradford was especially sore about the American Civil War, which Dillon knew wisely not to mention around him.

Literary comment[]

The frequent assertion in the text that his name sounds very Southern, is a presumed allusion to Confederate General Braxton Bragg.
