NEWPORT-Dale Brown's military service dates back to 1954.

Although he has served as AMVETS Post No. 75 commander for the past 12 years, many of Brown's earlier military experiences could not be discussed until 40 years later when he finally received a letter removing the secrecy behind his wartime efforts.

Speaking to the Newport Lions Club last Thursday at Shoney's in Newport, Brown shared tales of his times in military service.

Brow recalled he was first assigned to Denver, Colo., where he was in an electronics school. At one point, he said, he was asked to fill out many forms...something his colleagues were not required to do. After radar school, he received an assignment to go to Japan.

His deployment, however, was delayed for four weeks and he was unsure as to the reason why. He later learned it was because he needed secret clearance.
