City Council President Darrell L. Clarke on Tuesday announced the appointment of Scott Brown as Director of the Philadelphia Veterans Advisory Commission.
A U.S. Navy veteran of the Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom, Brown has spent more than a decade in service to veterans. As a volunteer at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, Brown has expedited claims processing and worked with Doctors Without Borders. He is a Service Officer at Southwest Philadelphia American Legion Post 959 and serves as a board member of the nonprofit Bringing Up Down Syndrome (BUDS). Brown will be formally welcomed to his new role during Council’s Stated Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014. Councilman At-Large David Oh, the only veteran on City Council, will present a resolution declaring 2014 the Year of the Veteran. Representatives from organizations including the VA Medical Center and the Veterans Multi-Service Center will join City Council to announce an initiative to end veteran homelessness in Philadelphia by the end of 2014.
