1LT Werner Curt Brown II, Vietnam Veteran, born in Kansas, living in Wilmington, Delaware. He was buried in a family plot in Wilmington, NC, his mother's home which he visited and loved like no other place throughout his short life.

First Lieutenant Werner Curt Brown II was a casualty of the Vietnam War. As a member of the Army Reserve, 1LT Brown served our country until September 29th, 1968 in Quang Tin, South Vietnam. He was 23 years old and was not married. It was reported that Curt died from small arms fire or grenade. His body was recovered. Werner was born on January 5th, 1945 in Kansas. 1LT Brown is on panel 42W, line 039 of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. He served our country for 2 years.

I read with much interest the newspaper article last week about servicemen with NC connections. Perhaps, you would like some information on LT Werner Curt Brown, who served in the army and was killed in Chu Li, Vietnam in 1968. Curt ‘s family are the Bullocks of Wilmington, it Bullock hospital and Bullock Park. His grandparents residence was 508 Market St, beside the Bellamy mansion. He is buried in the family cemetery in Oakdale, but his parents lived in Wilmington, DL as his Mother was a Bullock. We dated before he left for Vietnam during his summer stay at the family beach house on Raleigh St, Wrightsville beach, NC. His name, of course is on the memorial in DC. and I still have all his letters. He was a remarkable young man who left this earth much too soon, as they all did. Gina.

Anyone knowing Curt please e-mail me. I know his parents lived in Delaware, and he had a sister. Every Sept when the leaves change, I think of you and the good times we had before you went to V.N. Will not ever forget you and what you gave to your country. Thanks. We lived together in Ft Stewart, Georgia, before he went to Nam. I had just returned from Nam. Hogan Bryan.

He served with Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 46th Infantry Regiment, 198th Infantry Brigade, USARV.

He was awarded The Combat Infantryman's Badge(CIB), The Purple Heart Medal for his combat related wounds, The Vietnam Service Medal, The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Service Medal, The National Defense Service Medal and The Good Conduct Medal.
