Veterans

(Pictured above–Sergeant Davis D. Williamson of the 36th Division who served in Europe from July 18, 1918 to March 3, 1919.  He rests in Bryan City Cemetery.)

Hundreds of individuals departed Brazos County to answer the call of our nation–from rural locations such as Steele’s Store, Kurten and Wellborn to the city of Bryan and the campus of the A&M College of Texas.  The Brazos County World War I Centennial Committee has separated this information into two main categories.  One captures those veterans of the Great War whose final resting place is in our county and the other highlights the contributions to the war effort by students, faculty and staff of the college.  Both categories include sections of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice–Brazos County Gold Stars and Gold Star Aggies.
