Lake Jackson Soldier is Saluted

The City of Lake Jackson held a celebration for Army Specialist Monica Brown! She was awarded the prestigious Silver Star for saving several comrades while under attack in Afghanistan. Brown is only the second female to receive the honor since World War II.

“It’s almost too much for me to come home and to see all this stuff and see everyone supporting everyone that’s in the Army and fighting for our freedom,” Brown said.

The city renamed its jogging trail after Brown since she’s an avid runner, and she’s run that trail for years.

CONGRATS MONICA!!! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!
