On May 2, the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Post 29 had the pleasure of a visit from Senior Airman Maurice ‘Trace’ Brown, who was in on military leave. Brown is a member of the Critical Care Air Transfer Team stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. He presented the auxiliary with a patch from the CATT team. Brown is the auxiliary’s adopted airman and was surprised with a birthday cake and small gifts from the auxiliary members to celebrate his birthday. Brown indicated that he really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the organization. Auxiliary members thanked him for his service and enjoyed spending time with this dedicated airman. Brown is the son of Maurice and Tina Brown of Elkins and the grandson of Becky Manolidis, president of the Ladies Auxiliary.
