Brown was one of several volunteers from the U.S. Marine Corps to assist the young students in preparing for the new school year. In the parking lot, Marines took turns escorting the kids to class and seeing some young patriots in distress, Lance Corporals Butler, Robert Kaminski and Thomas Decker even helped raise Old Glory high above the school yard.
