Brown Receives Belated Honor

by Bobby Blair
October 2, 2018

Better late than never the old saying goes, and so last week Harvey Brown received his just due as Holliston's Oldest Veteran honors at St. Patrick's Nursing Home in Framingham. Due to advancing age, Brown was unable to make the formal presentation by American Legion Post #47 earlier in September at the annual 9/11 ceremonies held in upper town hall. At 96 years of age, Brown suceeds John "Babe" Johnson who held the distinction for a year prior to his recent passing.

Attending the private presentation were American Legion Sr. Vice Commander Bob Hopkins (himself a WWII veteran) above left, Brown, his wife Virginia and daughter Sue Ramsley. Not pictured Legion Commander Steve Bradford.

Brown served with the US Army as a communicator during the Nurenburg trials. Citations were presented on behalf of the State Senate, House of Representatives, and Town Fathers. According to Bradford only 20 WWII veterans survive in town.
