Brown, Joye, Maj., U.S. Army Reserve

Daughter of Vivian Barlow Shore

I am a member of the Army Reserves.  I was activated in November and left Alabama and family to be assigned to Fort Leonardwood, Mo.  Not sure how much longer I will be here or when I will be released.  We have been activated to teach chemical soldiers.  Anyway, I am a chemical officer working as the executive officer for the 4/100th Chemical Battalion.  I am a Major in the Army Reserves.  We may be used to fill vacancies in various units when the training is done.
