Brownwood Memorial Day Program
Retired Air Force General Dan Locker will be the Master of Ceremonies.
Retired Navy Commander Jim Looby will give the Memorial Day address. There
will be a dedication of two Memorial Day plaques. The first honors Robert
"Cotton" Tuggle, a Brownwood native who was tragically beheaded by the
Japanese in World War II. The second plaque honors the American Legion and
Isham Smith, the first Brown County native killed in World War I and the
namesake for American Legion Post 196. Dr Carol Smith, a great niece of
Isham Smith, will also speak.
The Central Texas Veterans Memorial honors all veterans, but especially the
259 Brown County veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice from World War I
