We learned over the weekend that one of the CIA agents who was killed in the Taliban attack last week was a father of three who lives in our neighborhood. And while we haven't met the Browns personally, our prayers will certainly be with them during these trying times:
Harold E. Brown Jr., of Fairfax, Va., was among the dead, according to his father, Harold E. Brown Sr. The elder Brown said Thursday that his 37-year-old son, who grew up in Bolton, Mass., served in the Army and worked for the State Department. He is survived by a wife and three children ages 12, 10 and 2.
