  • Final Mission of CW2 Joseph G. Brown

    Posted on 5/7/17 - by
    CW2 Joseph G. Brown was a UH-1 helicopter pilot serving with the 237th Medical Detachment. On February 18, 1971, he was the aircraft commander of a medivac helicopter UH-1H (#69-15063) supporting ARVN troops in Laos during Lam Son 719. CW2 Brown was injured by shrapnel after his aircraft was shot down while attempting a medical evacuation dustoff in a “hot” LZ. He was air evacuated to a forward Army medical unit in Khe Sanh, RVN, where two surgeons worked desperately but unsuccessfully to save his life. [Taken from and]
  • Our Brother

    Posted on 2/7/15 - by Janna Hoehn for Larry Brown
    Our brother Joe was an uncomplicated man who loved to fly helicopters. His first tour of duty was flying helicopter gunships in Viet Nam in 1968.

    He volunteered for a second tour, but only if he could fly Medi-Vac choppers. He returned to Viet Nam in October of 1970 and was killed in action on February 18, 1971 while on a mission in Laos.

    He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action. We love you Joe.
