"Uncle Cloyd"

My grandfather's brother, my father's uncle.

Killed in Action at Iwo Jima. Entered the service from Georgia. Awarded the Purple Heart.

Oldest child of Lloyd W. Brown & Annie Mae (Freeman) Brown. Brother to Rayford F., Dorice F., Arzelia N., Edna M., Elton C. & Joan B.

Husband of Sarah John Floyd, whom he married on Oct.5, 1935. They had one child, a son, Gerald Floyd Brown. Gerald was just 6 when his father died.

God bless you Uncle Cloyd!!


His Great Nephew, Daryl Brown, grandson of Cloyd's brother Rayford, followed in Cloyd's footsteps and served with the 5th Marine Division in Operation Iraq Freedom (Feb 2005 - Oct 2005) & (Nov 2007 - June 2008).

My thanks to Paul F. Wilson, who originally listed Uncle Cloyd (and all the other men buried at the Punchbowl), and then upon finding out I was related, transferred the memorial to me. Thank you greatly Paul!
