"A proud young soldier who had enlisted at the age of 17, Brown signed letters home "Your Marine." The corporal, a rifleman and fire team leader, was assigned to Company C of Battalion Landing Team 1/3, 9th Marine Amphibious Brigade, in Viet Nam in June 1966. He died in Quang Nam Province on May 10, 1967. The former Benjamin Franklin High School student was 19. He was survived by his parents, three brothers and three sisters."
