Potter County Bridge Dedication For Fallen Korean War Soldier

Potter County Today

A Potter County native who lost his life on the Korean War will be recalled with a bridge named on his honor. A dedication ceremony for the Paul M. Brown Memorial Bridge over Bailey Run near Wharton will be held at 10 am Saturday, May 20. The public is encouraged to attend.

Army Technician Fourth Grade Paul Brown lost his life during combat operations in South Korea on March 2, 1951. Brown lived with his foster parents, Mr. and Mrs. James D. Glover, in Wharton Township. He was working for Williamson Pulp and Paper Company in Austin when he was called for service in World War II. Brown was deployed overseas on in May 1943 and returned just before Christmas 1945. 

He went to work for the Department of Forests and Waters and, later, Kress Flagstone Company in Wharton Township while remaining on the roster of the Army Reserve. 

In 1950, he was called to duty in Korea. He was killed by enemy fire during heavy fighting which ensued around Cheehon, Chungju, and Pyongchang as part of an effort to push the North Korean and Chinese forces away from Seoul, South Korea.
