Dorm converted to classroom building named after two of the
A classroom building that used to be a dormitory at the
Pensacola Naval Air Station was dedicated on Friday to two of the
seven Space Shuttle Columbia astronauts who died on February 1,
The Laurel B. Clark and David M. Brown Aerospace Medicine
Academic Center was dedicated in a ceremony attended by relatives
of the two Navy Captains who were on their first missions to space
when the orbiter broke up over Texas on reentry.
"We dedicate this building to say thank you for their courage,
to honor their spirit and to say to every successive generation
that these were the greatest of humankind — the explorers,"
said Rear Adm. Donald C. Arthur, the Navy's surgeon general.
During the ceremony, Douglas Brown, 50, talked about the last
time his younger brother visited him for the holidays, a month
before the launch. "I said, `Dave, it's pretty risky. What do you
want me to say if you didn't come back?' He said, `Well, I would
want the program to go on.'"
Laurel Clark's husband, Capt. Jon Clark, USN (Ret.), talked
about a letter his wife had sent to a friend years before the
accident took her life. "She said `The greatest hazard in life is
to risk nothing. The man or woman who does nothing has nothing, is
nothing,'" Clark said.
