Assigned to 570th Bomber Squadron, 390th Bomber Group (Heavy) as a crewman on B17G #42-31892, nicknamed "I'll Be Around."

Brown was piloting the aircraft on a mission to Boulogne on June 4, 1944. They suffered mechanical problems while forming up; the crew parachuted safely. Brown was killed when the B17 crashed during an attempted emergency landing.
