Jack H. Brown, the chairman/CEO of Stater Bros. Markets in California, has been honored by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society for his years of contributions to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society and for his dedication to promoting and perpetuating the principles upon which our nation was founded. The Congressional Medal of Honor Society is comprised of only those Americans who have received our Nation's Highest Award for Heroism under fire while risking their lives in action against our enemies.

The award was presented on March 1 by five Medal of Honor Recipients:  John F. Baker Jr., Harvey C. Barnum Jr., Ronald E. Ray, James A. Taylor, and Jay R. Vargas, who have all known Brown personally for many years. Brown is a Navy Veteran, having served with the Pacific Fleet during the Vietnam era.  He has been at the helm of Stater Bros. Markets for the past 29 years.

Brown said, "I have been honored in my career by receiving several special awards but none were presented by five Medal of Honor Recipients and from an organization that I so respect and admire…the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.  Those who wear the … 'Medal of Honor' …are truly America's finest."
