The Central Texas Veterans’ Memorial Committee is placing a commemorative plaque at the memorial to honor Groner Pitts, the namesake for the “Groner Pitts Lifetime of Service Award” presented by the Brownwood Chamber of Commerce, namesake for the “Groner Pitts  National Guard Armory” at Camp Bowie, and “Godfather” of the Brownwood Mafia.

 

The plaque pictured recognizes Pitts’ contributions  to Brownwood and to the military.

 

The committee is also raising money to have UH-1 Huey helicopter that was recently placed at the memorial refurbished and prepared for display. If you are interested in helping fund this please forward your tax deductible check [501(c)(3) organization] to:
