A young Ririe Army man was killed in an oil tank explosion in Viet Nam Saturday his parents were notified Monday. He was Spec 4 Arlo F. Brown 22, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Brown, Shelton, a community southwest of Ririe.

He had only two weeks more to serve in Vietnam.  He was a member of the 193rd engineering Co. 4th Battalion and entered the Army 8 Apr 1965. He had gone to Vietnam a year ago.
