Levy man finalist for exclusive honor

-A A +A

Medal of Honor winners choose winner

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Bill Brown, a Levy County resident who has devoted much of his life to helping feed the hungry in North Central Florida, is among 20 finalists for an honor bestowed by this country's most exclusive organization — the living recipients of the Medal of Honor.
The members of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which has fewer than 90 members, bestows the nation's highest civilian award on three individuals annually on March 25, National Medal of Honor Day in a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va.
Ten of the finalists are individuals who have performed an extraordinary act of heroism and the other 10 are chosen for a lifetime of work that places the well-being of others before themselves.
Ironically enough, Brown and his wife, Verna, may not be able to attend the ceremony because they cannot afford the trip.
"We have been invited to Washington," he said. "But it's a lot of logistics and a lot of money. It's a lot of money to go up for two days."
