                      Tuesday, September 26, 2017

  Mr. WITTMAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today with the sad news that Colonel 
Jim Brown, a resident of Fredericksburg, Virginia passed away on August 
30, 2017. Col. Brown graduated from Annandale High School in 1956 and 
went on to graduate from Virginia Tech with a degree in Electrical 
Engineering in 1960. Col. Brown served 30 years in the Army Reserves, 
retiring in 1991.
   Col. Brown dedicated his career to public service, spending much of 
his career working with electric power systems ensuring power supply 
adequacy and reliability, in addition to restoring systems after storms 
and earthquakes. Jim served as the Department of Virginia President of 
the Reserve Officers Association, Region IV Commander as well as 
Department of Virginia Commander of the Military Order of the World 
Wars. I have had the pleasure of working with Jim on the Fredericksburg 
Veterans Council for the past 8 years. Jim is survived by his wife, 
June; children, James and Julie; and three grandchildren, Joshua, 
Victoria, and Michael.
   Mr. Speaker, I ask you to join me and countless others as we 
recognize the many contributions of Colonel Jim Brown.
