On Saturday, November 21, Brown was presented with a $500 travel award from the Ben Jackson Foundation to cover his flight expenses from Lemoore, CA, where he is currently stationed, to his hometown of La Crosse, WI. The financial gift, along with a U.S. Navy t-shirt and challenge coin, was handed to Brown in person by Larry and Jennifer Jackson.
“It means a lot — I’m very thankful,” Brown said of the gift, unable to give Larry and Jennifer a handshake or hug due to COVID-19 precautions but smiling broadly.
