We will be Honoring and inducting Neil H. Brown of Upper St. Clair onto the Wall of Valor for his gallantry in action while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam and his award of the Silver Star. First Lieutenant Brown distinguished himself while serving as a platoon leader with the 101st Airborne Division during airmobile assault operations in the A Shau Valley during August 1969.
VFW Memorial Park Post 764 Wall of Valor: In 1995, the Wall of Valor was dedicated as a part of military history to honor veterans of VFW Post 764, living and dead, for valor “above and beyond the call of duty” while in action against enemy forces. The plaques on the Wall recreate the deeds, medals, and heroic stories of these brave men who placed freedom above their own lives. This Wall serves as a token of our appreciation where symbols of their valor can be seen and respected for many generations to come. The Wall now holds nearly three dozen plaques from three wars: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Those eligible to be honored on the Wall are recipients of the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Silver Star or Distinguished Flying Cross. Visit the Wall of Valor on the web: VFW764.ORG under the Wall of Valor.
This ceremony will be held at the VFW Memorial Park Post 764, 460 Valleybrook Road, McMurray, Pa 15317
