THE STORY BEHIND THE ORANGE SOCK
It’s not often you see a 220-pound soldier in orange knee highs, but that was Mark’s brother Luke. He made an impression wherever he went, and made the best out of every situation through sidesplitting humor and wit. His socks were a banner of sorts—a reminder of his personal principal. Be the best you can be despite the opinions and disapproval of others.
At the funeral of PFC Luke Joshua Brown, 82nd Airborne US Army, the pallbearers friends, and family all wore orange socks as a testament to his wry spirit, his gratitude, and his heart. The Orange Sock is a symbol to honor all loyal, unforgettable, laughing souls like Luke and to continue their legacy through unique and thoughtful service.
