In an effort to include all Tillman County Vets, we add this name, W. R. Brown, Jr.

"W. R. Brown, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Brown, was killed near Rome, Italy, on the night of March 16, 1944. A memorial service paid tribute to him and to the fact that he sacrificed his life in an attempt to save the life of another. The Grandfield Legion Post 175 added Brown's name, making it the Wade-Brown Post. Later the post added Vines for Thomas Franlin Vines, Jr. (Korean War casualty)"
