Little Rock, Ark. (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
For Veterans’ Day, Nov. 11, Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com will honor our nations’ heroes all week long with free coffee and cookies Nov. 10 – 15, and will round out the week on Saturday, Nov. 15 with a special book signing of Eric Blehm’s “Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown.”
The book, which will soon be a movie, tells the heart-wrenching story of Arkansas-native Adam Brown of SEAL Team SIX who was killed in action in Afghanistan. Brown’s widow, Kelly Brown, and members of the dive team from the Fearless Rock Adam Brown Underwater Memorial will be on hand to sign books. The volunteers regularly maintain and improve the memorial at Blakely Dam on Lake Ouachita, which flies underwater flags supplied by Arkansas FlagandBanner.com.
Veterans are invited to drop by during the week and share their stories while they enjoy free cookies and coffee in the showroom 8 a.m. until noon all week. Visitors may also enter to win a flagpole kit complete with Old Glory, proudly made in the U.S.A. Winners will be announced at the event Saturday.
The hero from Hot Springs and Navy SEAL chief gave his life during an operation in the Komar Province of Afghanistan on March 17, 2010. When coalition forces found themselves pinned down by heavy fire from a Taliban compound, Brown charged the enemy to procure a better vantage point, drawing fire away from his team.
Although Brown fell, his selfless actions led to his team’s safe return and a successful operation. One SEAL was injured, but the compound was captured and the enemy killed. A true story of courage, Blehm’s book recounts Brown’s life in and out of the service.
You can celebrate our local heroes this week at Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com, located at 800 West 9th Street in Downtown Little Rock.
