    Marine Pfc. Nicholson Brown, 20, was killed in action in Viet Nam Saturday.
    A member of the 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, Pfc. Brown was taking part in "Operation Dechhouse IV" in Quang Tri Province, which borders on the demilitarized zone.

    In August Pfc. Brown enlisted in the Marine Corps. After completing boot camp at Parris Island, he took advanced infantry training at Camp LeJeune,
    N.C. His regiment was formed last May at Camp Pendleton, Calif., and sailed for Viet Nam in July.
    The battalion had been in action for approximately a month, attached to the 7th Fleet as a Special Landing Force, carrier-basrd and delivered to combat zones by helicopter.
    He leaves his mother, Mrs. Christine A. Brown of 22 14th St. NE.

    Semper Fidelis, Marine!

    Dear PFC Nicholson 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
