  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SFC Joe David Brown, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
  • Platoon Sergeant

    Posted on 10/5/12 - by Bill Trotter

    SFC Brown was the platoon sergeant for the 2d platoon, B Company, 3d7th INF, 199th LIB (Spt). I was his platoon leader and with him,that night on ambush,28 Jan 68.

    SFC Brown was 35 years old and had been a drill sergeant at Fort Dix, NJ. He could have remained at Fort Dix, because of his MOS. SFC 'Joe' Brown not only asked to be assigned to RVN, he insisted on being assigned to a rifle company. Joe had only been with us a few weeks when he was KIA (gsw)during a night ambush. He was respected by all members of his rifle platoon because of his devotion and commitment to the welfare of his men. I'll see you on the high ground Joe.
