This list contains the names of the 63 sons of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas (Texas A&M) that made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the country during World War I. 

The Brazos County World War I Centennial Committee, which included Texas A&M Archivist Greg Bailey, originally compiled this list of identified Aggies to mark the 100th anniversary of America’s experience in the First World War.

If you know of a former student who died while serving in World War I and is not listed, tell us by emailing AggieNetwork@AggieNetwork.com.
