1st Bn. B Co. 503rd/173rd Airborne Bde
Was born July 16th 1947 in Richlands Virginia. He enlisted in the Army at 17 and Celebrated his 18th Birthday patrolling the jungles of Vietnam.
He often wrote to my Mother. The last letter she received was written on the 5th of November, just before deployment of "operation hump". In his letter he said he had a bad feeling about his fate and that if he
didn't make it out, to tell the family he Loved us all.
This was the report for his Bronze Star......For heroism in connection with Military operations against a hostile force: Private First Class Brown distinguished himself by heroic actions on 8 November 1965, in the Republic of Vietnam. During an engagement with the Viet cong, Private Brown was wounded in the leg. He refused both medical aid and evacuation so that his other wounded comrades could receive assistance.He made his way back to the platoon
command post. Upon reaching the command post, the Viet Cong launched another attack. Private Brown took up a defensive position and continued to fight. Wounded for the 2nd time, he still refused medical aid. In the climax of the battle, he died as a result of his wounds.
PFC Browns outstanding display of aggressiveness, devotion of duty and personal bravery is keeping with the Highest traditions of the Military service and reflects great credit upon himself, the 173rd Airborne Brigade and the United States Army.....
