follow up to yesterday's posting on first lt. Thomas J. Brown

i never met the man, but i guess this is the sort of man he was:

Fallen Soldier Requested Charity In Lieu Of Donations

(what does THAT say about the man? lots, it says lots about him. i mean in A GOOD way of course)

A few weeks ago, First Lt. Thomas J. Brown and his family talked about what no family wants to discuss. They discussed his wishes in the event that anything should happen to him.
Brown, 26, died in
Iraq on Tuesday, the U.S. Army said Wednesday.
He grew up in Shelton with his mother, Carol, and twin brother Timothy.
Thomas Brown asked that anyone wishing to make donations make them to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
His family said he was a charismatic young man who could win you over with his smile, his family said.
Brown played Little League and youth soccer.
“I've been hearing a lot from people calling up and reminiscing. They just said that everyone is taking something away from having known Tom. He's just outstanding moral character, just the person he is -- he's just changed everyone's lives,” Timothy Brown said..........
