October/November 2003


The officers and crew of the U.S.S. John W. Brown invite you to participate in a reenactment of the return of a troopship to Baltimore at the end of WWII sponsored by Project Liberty during our annual Veterans Day event, November 8, in Baltimore. The event is free, but all veterans must make reservations to participate, as space is limited. We encourage all units to bring aboard their colors and guidon. Family and friends will be asked to make up welcoming party.
