Rifle Volley Salute

In honor of BroCast lover, WWII veteran, brilliant author, business wiz, wonderful father, loving grandfather, kindhearted friend, and all around incredible human being and gentleman Arnold Brown, we send him off with the traditional three-volley rifle salute.

Who better to pull the trigger for his farewell than the man himself?

Who better to pull the trigger for his farewell than the man himself? So what if these photos from 2008 are the first time he fired a rifle since Navy bootcamp?

Ready. Aim. Fire.

Bang.

Bang.

Ready. Aim. Fire.

Bang.

Bang.

Ready. Aim. Fire.

Bang.

And…bang.

Well shot, grandpa. You were truly one of the best, brightest, friendliest, and absolute funniest men this world has ever known. I and countless others love you dearly and always will. So rest easy, Radioman Third Class Brown. We’ll all be proudly carrying on the torch of your greatness, kindness, and humor from here.

  1. Wow, Paul, that was a terrific “send-0ff” piece on Arnold. He was such a terrific man. We only had him for 8 years and in that time I fell in love with him and your family.
