Patch, Israel Flag

Patch, Israel Flag

     

This Israeli flag patch belonged to Space Shuttle astronaut David M. Brown. He flew on Shuttle mission STS-107 (2003) and died when Columbia disintegrated during reentry. Before he joined NASA, Brown earned a medical degree, served in the U.S. Navy, and became a flight surgeon and naval aviator. He collected pins such as this during his career as an astronaut, which took him on frequent trips to Russia. After the shuttle mission ended in tragedy, his family gave this and other personal items to the Museum, which he had enjoyed visiting in his youth.

Gift of Paul D. and Dorothy R. Brown.
