CATONSVILLE, Md. — There is no picture of him to show you, for he has no family.

Captain Phillip Lynn Brown died last year.

He served in the army from 1966-1980. He served in Vietnam where was wounded and he was awarded the bronze star and the Purple Heart.

His last address was in Havre De Grace.

To make sure that he doesn't get buried alone, we are asking the community to find it in their heart to attend his burial next Thursday morning, September 19 at the Baltimore National Cemetery on Frederick Avenue in Catonsville.

As of tonight, WMAR has heard from various VFW's former veterans and Wreaths Across America planning to attend.
