"Texas Aggie Medals of Honor" by James R. Woodall '50
Every Medal of Honor represents a story of gallantry, courage, and sacrifice. Conceived in the early 1860s, the Medal of Honor, awarded “in the name of the Congress of the United States,” has been presented to 3,467 members of the United States Armed Forces. Seven of the 464 Medals of Honor awarded during World War II went to Texas Aggies.

Author James R. Woodall, a 1950 graduate of Texas A&M University, and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, carried out a dedicated search of archives, family collections, and scores of other resources to gather, for the first time, the complete stories of these seven courageous men.
