A Tribute to Adam Brown: "Led by Faith"

OK I admit it - I took one look at this thing and thought "not another Navy SEAL tribute" . . . but I've got faith in the people who run the NRA Life of Duty so I looked at what they have going here.

The story of Adam Brown's youth parallels my own journey - how I ended up in the military and how I became a Green Beret. Adam Brown fell in battle against the enemies of our country and for that he has earned a place in Valhalla and we must honor his memory. The tribute put together here by NRA LOD and his family is remarkable, it is fitting and it does great honor to a worthy man. "Respect" - S.L.

NRA's Life of Duty is releasing this story in honor of Adam's passing on March 17, 2010 – the day the our nation lost one of it’s finest operators, husband, father, son, brother, brother-in-law, friend and inspiration.

If you are interested in reading more about Adam’s inspirational story, I encourage you to pre-order a copy of Fearless by Eric Blehm. Eric also wrote the book The Only Thing Worth Dying For, the heroic story of Special Forces Operational Detachment "Alpha" (ODA) 574.

  1. One thing they really didn't touch on, and I grew up with people that became all forms of special forces from SOCOM to SEALS. Not only are they all tough and all good guys, I have never met a dumb one in the bunch. He may have been tough as nails but I guarantee you he was sharp as a tack, too. God Bless. Fearless, sure. But they are also some of our best and brightest. RIP.

  2. That was a great video, I saw it a while back.

    RIP Chief Brown, you were a true Hero.

    Fair winds and following seas...
