The Virginian-Pilot

A Virginia Beach police officer serving as a Marine reservist has been killed by a massive roadside explosion while riding in an amphibious vehicle in Iraq.

Bradley J. Harper, 25, died Wednesday along with 13 other Marines and an Iraqi translator on a road outside Haditha when a roadside bomb detonated and flipped their lightly armored vehicle.

On Thursday, Virginia Beach police officers memorialized Harper's death by "draping the badge," a traditional show of honor and brotherhood by police who place a black swath across their shields when a fellow officer is killed.
