Seven Aggies honored at Luxembourg American Cemetery

Related: Lists of Aggies honored at Arlington National Cemetery, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (see also: tx.ag/VietnamMIAAggies), the Normandy American Cemetery in France, the Luxembourg American Cemetery and both American military cemeteries in Italy; and Aggies who died due to service in World War I.

On a 2014 trip, a group with Traveling Aggies visited the graves of seven Aggies buried in Luxembourg American Cemetery to honor their memory and place U.S. flags. 

"At each of the Aggies' graves, our group placed our Rings on the gravestones as we sang the Spirit of Aggieland," they wrote.

Most of the 5,070 U.S. service members honored at the cemetery in Hamm, Luxembourg, died in the Battle of the Bulge and the advance to the Rhine River.

Gen. George S. Patton is among the Americans buried there.

The list of Aggies' names (all U.S. Army) was compiled by retired Texas A&M University archivist Dr. David L. Chapman ’67, and in 2023 Capt. José Davis ’11 added their graves' locations:

  • Capt. James D. Richter ’31 (plot E, row 11, grave 32)
  • Capt. Paul O. Wofford ’39 (plot I, row 10, grave 14)
  • 2nd Lt. Edwin R. Lewis, Jr. ’42 (plot D, row 3, grave 4)
  • Sgt. William P. Noa, Jr. ’43 (plot B, row 2, grave 10)
  • 2nd Lt. Carlton A. Sheram, Jr. ’43 (plot H, row 15, grave 81)
  • Pvt. Monte W. Kaufman ’46 (plot F, row 5, grave 4) 
  • PFC Thomas R. Leary ’46 (plot H, row 9, grave 14)
