Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3278/Ladies Auxiliary will present a photo of Marine Cpl. Tevan Nguyen, who was killed in Afghanistan in December 2010, to members of Nguyen’s family during Monday’s meeting of the Brown County Commissioners Court.
Commissioners meet at 9 a.m.
Though he had grown up in Hutto, Nguyen was buried at Indian Creek Cemetery beside his grandmother, Lucia Salazar. Nguyen is the son of Tam Van Nguyen and Amy (Salazar) Nguyen. Amy Nguyen is a native of Brownwood.
The community hailed the fallen Marine as their own hero, and thousands lined the roads and streets waving flags and showing support Jan. 6, 2011, as the funeral procession moved from St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Brownwood to the cemetery.
In other business Monday, commissioners will:
• Consider a request from the VFW post for support for the Ribbons of Support Campaign.
• Consider a request from Precinct 1 Commissioner Gary Worley to spend $75,000 to purchase equipment.
