|Michael P. Brown's Senior Picture|
Michael Paul Brown is my 2nd cousin once removed. He was killed in Xom Dau, Tinh Long An, Long An, Vietnam while the 1/4 ton vehicle he was traveling in was hit by an enemy B40 recoilless round at close range. Even though Michael was killed before I was born, I feel a connection with him. A Radio Research Company would be a precursor to the same unit I served in. The same type of unit and 30 years before I did. I need to request his military records. I am curious about the type of job he did and often wonder if it was similar to mine.
