The database page for William Joseph Brown
My father went to school (and became best friends) with Billy Brown. In 1969 Bill went to Vietnam and three months later was Killed In Action.
My father said the first son he had he would name after Bill. That's where I come in - William Joseph Price. My father kept a few letters from Bill but not much concrete information. Bill was in infantry when he first got to Vietnam then transfered to the First of the Fourth Cavalry. It was in the Cav that he was killed.
Summary as follows:
I have been registered with the In Touch program for a couple of years with no success. If you knew Bill Brown please email me.
I would like to find out more about the man I am named after.
I live in Columbus, Georgia and grew up with Allen H. Caldwell. He was like my brother and I loved him. We were a tight community back in the 1960s. Allen played football, baseball, basketball and was a great guy. When he died a piece of my heart died with him. He is buried at Fort Benning, Georgia. His parents are both deceased. He has two brothers and one sister. Allen had a personality and everyone who met him liked him. Vietnam was a place that changed my life and the life of so many of his friends. He will never be forgotten.
From a friend,
