On 31 July, 2015, during a ceremony held at Fort Lee, Virginia, Carl L. Brown, son of Herbert and Ellen Marsh (Williamsburg) and a 1985 graduate of Lafayette High School was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Regiment (Transportation Corps). The Distinguished Member of the Regiment (DMOR) program is designed to recognize truly outstanding Soldiers and civilians with a long and distinguished Army and Transportation Corps career. The distinction of DMOR is a life-long honor integral to the perpetuation of the Regiment. Only a few of the Transportation Corps' outstanding Soldiers and civilians are distinguished as DMORs. While serving the corps, Carl displayed pride and esprit while serving in locations such as Antarctica, England, Egypt, Germany, Haiti, Korea, Norway, Panama, Puerto Rico, Somalia, and the Middle East, to name a few. Carl's contribution to the success of the Transportation Corps for over 20 years has earned him a place in the Corps' history. This award is a culmination of a career well spent in the defense of our nation. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the Regimental community, traditions and esprit de corps, on 31 July 2015 the Secretary of the Army ordered that First Sergeant (retired) Carl L. Brown be granted and assigned the distinction of Distinguished Member of the Regiment.
Carl currently resides in Chester, Va with his wife Leona and youngest son Camren.
