Adam Lee Brown, LHHS Graduate in 1992 and son of former LHSD Board Member Larry Brown, died on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 while serving our nation in the United States Navy in Afghanistan. Adam was a Navy SEAL serving on a Special Operations Mission when he was killed in action. In true “Adam Brown Style” he died a true hero, placing himself in the line of fire to protect other members of his unit. Adam’s Special Ops Assault Team was assaulting an enemy compound, an operation Adam had performed many times. The U.S. Forces were engaging the enemy in a fire fight, when a portion of the U.S. soldiers were pinned down by very heavy fire from the enemy compound. In an effort to protect his men, Adam charged the enemy and was firing on the enemy from a better vantage point, drawing fire away from his pinned down comrades. His selfless action relieved the fire on his men, but it unfortunately resulted in Adam being struck by enemy fire. One other member of the American Team was wounded, but Adam’s heroic action saved the other men. The enemy compound was captured and all enemy combatants were killed in the action. Adam was a twelve year veteran who served several tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a true American Hero.
