From Wichita Brazos Museum—
BENJAMIN—Mary Jane Young, director of the Wichita Brazos Museum, urges Knox County residents to let her know about any names of veterans that need to be added on the Knox County Veterans Memorial.
“We have approximately 2,500 names on the memorial and now have a list of 33 names to be added,” she said. “We are interested in having any veteran’s name who was born in Knox County, ever lived here, or is buried here and received an honorable discharge.”
Application and information forms are available at the museum. Call 940-459-2229 or email at [email protected] or by mail at P.O. Box 104, Benjamin, TX 79505 by the Sept. 15 deadline.
Young added that Nov. 11, 2020, will mark 20 years for the dedication of the Knox County Veterans Memorial.
“We have been working here at the museum to keep all the loose ends tied up and keep things running as smoothly as possible, even though we are not officially open to the public,” Young added.
