Mrs. Brown my personal condolence for the loss of your son. Just think how much better off this world would be if we had more people like your son Lt. Brown. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jerry

When I was in VN in the 70's they would take you out of harms way when you had a short time left on your tour. It just tears my heart out when you read that he was due home in 20 days. My prayers are with your family also.

Amen, Rest In Peace and Godspeed.

It's something that a society can produce so many fine young people who believe in serving something greater than themselves.

God bless and watch over this family...

My heart aches for you and your family
Mrs. Brown, I will keep all of you in my prayers. My son is in Iraq and I pray everyday for God to watch over my son and ALL MILITARY and All personnel in the Middle East and all over America. He is my only son and he is very proud to be there also.
Many years ago , an older sweet grandmother in the Appalachian Mountains told me that GOD only loans us our children and he can take them back at any time. HE is now an angel.
I will pray for GOD to take you through one day at a time and to watch over you and your family.
GOD BLESS We are very proud of your son and all of our wonderful brave

Thank you First Lt Brown and thank you to the Brown family.

As for you Manchester, you are a liar. Our military in Connecticut are well respected and honored. Go back under whatever rock you crawled from.
