During his time in the legislature, Brown was a champion for the hardworking Atlantic County families he was elected to represent.Brown, however, has served the residents of the State of New Jersey and the United States long before his time in the legislature, as a member of the United States Army. Brown served during the first Persian Gulf War, Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Brown served with the utmost distinction, and was awarded the Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman Badge for his service.Brown has a long history of putting the needs of others in front of his own, even if it meant leaving his young family for a deployment. I applaud Senator Brown for his lifetime of service, look forward to continuing his legacy and I am excited to have his help securing victory in November."
