Noblis Veteran Spotlight Series Highlights Employees' Stories of Service

Noblis’ multi-part series shared stories of service from employee veterans

In honor of Veteran's Day, Noblis was proud to feature a Veteran Spotlight Series to spotlight the service of some of our employee veterans, including Noblis ESI employee and U.S. Air Force veteran Ellsworth (Bronwnie) S. Browne, Jr. 

Read the spotlight below to learn more about Brownie's honorable service, and visit the Noblis website to read the rest of the series. The leadership skills, sense of duty, and commitment our 200 veteran employees bring to Noblis is invaluable—and we’re proud t­o spotlight their service.    


Brownie Brown photoBrownie served in the U.S. Air Force for 27 years. He recalls that travelling and receiving an education were what inspired him to join the military.

“To the credit of the DoD, I was able to accomplish both. I’ve traveled to over 18 different countries around the world. I earned an Associate’s Degree in Mathematics, a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Studies, and a Master’s Degree in Technology Management, said Brownie of his service.” 

Brownie was highly recognized for his service. Among other decorations, he received the Legion of Merit Award, the Meritorious Service Metal with 3-oak leaf clusters, the Outstanding Unit Award with Valor and 4-oak leaf clusters, and the Air Force Recognition Ribbon.

“On September 11, 2001 I was stationed at Prince Sultan Air Base Saudi Arabia, 7-hours ahead of Eastern Standard time,” said Brownie about a memorable time during his service. “Suddenly the base security level rose to ThreatCON Delta and MOP-Level (Chemical Warfare) I. Then I saw CNN news and could not believe my eyes…both World Trade Centers on fire. My heart sank to the floor…it was surreal.”      

Like Neil, Brownie continues to protect our homeland through his role at Noblis ESI. He supports the National Reconnaissance Office, providing program acquisition and execution SETA Support to their Mission Integration Directorate.

Said Brownie, “My service to the USAF provided me an outstanding education and worldwide experiences that have provided unlimited employment opportunities within the federal government.”
