First Lieutenant Brown was drafted into the Army (Infantry) in 1942 and served until 1945 in the Company F, 379th Infantry, 95th Infantry Division, 3rd Army. Interviewed by Loren Pennington on Apr 8, 2006, Brown talked about military experiences in the Second World War. Brown was born April 23, 1915, on a farm three miles south of Olpe, Kansas. His parents were Mathew G. Brown and Emma K. Trier Brown. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original audio copy of the interview is available through the Emporia State University (Flint Hills) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
