I can't be absolutely positive this is the same SSG Brown I remember, but it sounds right.

I remember sharing a perimeter with a SSG Brown of HHT, 2nd Squadron, at Bandit Hill around the '68/'69 Christmas - New Years timeframe.
And doing a bit of horsetrading with him.....I needed some batteries for my track (M113) and he needed a ground tripod mount for a M2, .50 cal. to mount his .50 on top of an AVLB to get enough height to clear the berm.

Had some tense nights there on occasion but don't remember getting a ground attack, but it was nice to have that .50 up high where it could really provide cover for us.

You were a good man....and we'll miss you.

Allons, until we meet again.
