Wesley Brown was a true pathfinder. I am glad that I had the Honor to meet him. I endured racism at the Academy, I did not graduate from Annapolis, but it was nothing compared to what Wesley Brown endured to accomplish his Graduation. Thanks to Bob Schneller and Chet Gladchuck, USNA Athletic Director, Wesley Brown receved his long overdue Recognition as the first Afro-American to graduate from Annapolis. He made his mark at the Academy and I believe his Spirit will still be present at the Academy Fieldhouse when a Midshipman needs some inspiration to never "Give-up or Give-in". God is Good. James Richard Frezzell, USNA '68', Albany, New York.

To my 'godfather'...you gave more than one could ask for. You were humble which made you great and your greatness made you humble...Crystal, Billie, Carol, Tony and Gary...thank you for sharing 'The Commander', as we all called him, with me and my family. We have so many fond memories of such great times through the years. He's gone but will never be forgotten! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

To the family of Wesley Brown, I want you to know how deeply grateful I am to your father, friend and loved one for his obedience to the divine will of God and determination to pave the way for me. Well Done, Faithful Servant. I am forever indebted to you. I was in your presence on few occasions at USNA yet I will forever remember the honor to have shared a moment in time with you. I wish your family peace and the joy of sharing wonderful memories in the days to come. My heartfelt and sincere condolences from a member of the USNA Class of 1999 and Former Gospel Choir President.

In this time of sorrow please know there are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of people who stand beside you and mourn your loss. LCDR Brown was and is a inspiration to us all. For those of us in uniform his legacy represents courage and strength. As a fellow sea service member I can only think he is standing watch with the Creator keeping a watchful eye on the horizon for those perils that can cause harm.

God be with the family and friends of LCDR Wesley Brown.

much love,

LCDR L. Stenson, USCG

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.
