Mrs. Brown and family. Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved . Lieutenant Commander Wesley Anthony Brown '49, CEC, USN (Ret.) was a true pioneer who forged ahead despite adversity and the difficult challenges of becoming the first African-American to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy. This accomplishment was an inspiration to me when I was a midshipman, and, it demonstrated how important it was for me to strive for excellence and realize that failure was not an option. Commander Brown's career as a Naval Officer represented the embodiment of the U.S. Naval Academy's mission to develop leaders to assume the highest responsibilities of leadership, citizenship, and government. He set the bar for those of us minority midshipmen who followed him and for those to come in the future. He fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith.

Peace be with you and your family,

Charles D. Hargrove
USNA Class of 1975
