House Passes Bill Naming Hot Springs Post Office for Fallen Sailor Adam Brown

May 23, 2016

The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday (May 23) passed H.R. 3931, a bill to designate the United States Post Office located at 620 Central Avenue, Suite 1A in Hot Springs National Park as the Chief Petty Officer Adam Brown United States Post Office.

Brown, a Hot Springs native, overcame many adversities in his life – including addiction – before joining the U.S. Navy and becoming a member of SEAL Team SIX.

On March 17, 2010, American forces were engaged in a firefight in Komar Province, Afghanistan, when members of Brown’s unit were cornered. Chief Petty Officer Brown maneuvered to draw enemy fire away from his unit and toward himself. He died as a result of his heroic actions.
