About Jackie M. (Mike) Brown

CONTACT: Western_Word@Yahoo.com I am a military veteran who honorably served my country in different parts of the world with the last stop being in Montana. I am a husband, a father, and I attend church regularly. I am also a college graduate, and I have worked and volunteered on several political campaigns (local, state, national). I have also been employed in various government positions (city, state and federal) as well as in the private sector. In my spare time, I enjoy sports, reading a good book, writing, and enjoying a fine glass of wine while visiting with friends around the fire.
