After completion of basic military training, soldiers receive advanced individual training in their career job specialty prior to being assigned to their first permanent duty station. Brown has reported to Fort Sill, Lawton, Okla., for basic training. He is the son of Connie and Rhonda Brown of McMinnville, Tenn.

      FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — A soldier from Tennessee who was stationed at Fort Campbell has died in combat in Afghanistan.

      The Defense Department says 20-year-old Spc. Jeremy L. Brown of McMinnville, Tenn., died Sunday after his unit was attacked by insurgents using small-arms fire. The military said Monday that Brown died at Contingency Outpost Zerok, Afghanistan. Brown was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division

      Fallen soldier to return home Sunday

      Warren County Memorial Airport on Sunday and his funeral will be Tuesday.

      Warren County native Spc. Jeremy Brown will be flown into Warren County Memorial Airport on Sunday and his funeral will be Tuesday.

      The 20-year-old soldier was killed last Sunday while serving his country in Afghanistan. His unit was attacked by insurgents while on foot patrol near the Afghanistan/Pakistan border.

      According to his mother, Rhonda Brown, the military has told her the plane will arrive Sunday morning at 8:31 a.m. Visitation at High Funeral Home will be held Sunday night, Monday, and Tuesday before the noon-time service. Burial will follow at Mt. View Cemetery.

      County Executive John Pelham says local officials are planning a gathering at the airport Sunday to greet Brown's plane when it arrives.

      "We are going to try our best to show our appreciation in the most respectful way possible when that plane lands," said Pelham. "We have gotten it approved through the state to lower our flags to half staff once he arrives in Warren County on Sunday and keep them at half staff until he is laid to rest."

      Pelham says he has received several calls from people wanting to wave flags and line the road as the procession goes from the airport to High's. Pelham says such a show of support would be touching, but he says the county cannot encourage it.

      "From a safety standpoint, the county can't come out and tell people to line the roads," said Pelham. "But if citizens wish to do something like that on their own, that is certainly their right."

      A number of dignitaries will be on hand when the plane lands. Pelham also said several fire trucks will be at the airport to provide a water salute. That is done by spray¬ing water in a rainbow-like fashion. After the plane lands and begins heading toward the terminal, it will taxi under the water.

      Rhonda Brown says she has been told two soldiers will remain by her son's casket at all times during visitation. Obituary information for Spc. Brown is available on page 2-A.
