Five Forgotten No Longer


In recognition of Memorial Day, May 29, 2017 beginning at 10:00 a.m. the Brazos County World War I Centennial Committee placed this wreath at the WW1 Monument on the campus of Texas A&M University, College Station.  LCDR (ret.) Tom Powell led the over fifty guests present in prayer to open the humble ceremony that featured remarks by chairman John Blair and a roll call of those who sacrificed their lives in service to our nation read by Blair and Greg Bailey, committee member and University Archivist.  For the first time the names of John W. Butts ’10, Hubert R. Florence ’11, Joseph Z. Sawyer ’16, Ira W. South ’17 and George W. Splawn ’17 were included — they are forgotten no more.
