A Silver Star for Monica Lin Brown

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Monica, for ever more, is “different”.
By her most valourous deeds, she is of unique company. “They” most surely welcome Monica Lin Brown within ‘their’ ranks.
Surely, (to pharaphase), “Greater love hath no (Soldier) than to (protect) another soldier”.

This brave soldier hails from the Houston area, Lake Jackson. We read she has all ready reinlisted! I promise you when she comes home, there will be a big celebration before she ships out again. Peace

Dean, she sounds like a wonderful young woman. She deserves a great celebration.


Thanks Monica. You have my eternal gratitude for your sacrifice. You are protecting my right to believe what I choose to. Thanks fellow Texan!

Oh, you Texans!
