Gene Park Brown

United States Army - Service date: 1940 - 1945

Gene Park Brown was drafted in the first rounds of the "Draft" that started in September, 1940. After initial training he was assigned to the Army base in San Francisco. He was stationed there until December 1941 at which time he was deployed to the Pacific Theater of War. We know little of the actions he was involved in until the invasion of the Phillipines by American forces. In that action he was involved in the attacks on the enemy forces and the freeing of the American prisoners of war the enemy had been holding since 1942. His description of the conditions of the camps and the prisoners was almost "beyond belief" as he put it. When he returned after the war it was obvious it affected him a great deal. He recieved a field promotion to Lieutenant during actions in the war. He recieved an honorable discharge in late 1945.
