President Clinton, Vice President Gore, Alma Brown, and a large crowd of relatives and friends were at Dover Air Force Base to receive the remains of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown and other Americans killed the previous Wednesday in a plane crash in Croatia. The flag-draped coffins were carried from a military transport plane by military pallbearers from the various armed services. Each coffin was placed in a separate hearse while hymns were played by a military band. Then, President Clinton spoke of the mission of the Commerce Department officials and private businessmen to Eastern Europe and of their dedication and patriotism. Cabinet secretaries and other administration officials and members of Congress were in the audience. close
