This page is dedicated to those service members from Nueces County who died in the service of their country during war. We honor their memory and their sacrifice in defense of our nation, state and county, the freedoms and rights we cherish, and the families and loved ones they left behind.

We are grateful for the tireless work of local military historian, Silver Star Medal recipient and tireless veteran advocate, Mr. Ram Chavez, who has worked to chronicle the military service of men and women from the Coastal Bend area from a wide variety of records.
