Project Aggie Valor

Project Aggie Valor is an effort to identify all former students who have been awarded the nation’s second-highest award for valor—the Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross or Air Force Cross. To our knowledge, no such list exists.

Listed below are the results to date. Readers are encouraged to provide information on other Aggies who should be added to the list.

To be eligible for this list, the individual must have been a former student when the award was earned. Information concerning this list should be sent to Jim Woodall ’50 at or (979) 693-1129.
