Event: University of Texas / Texas A&M Football Game
Date: 25-Nov-00
Location: UT Memorial Stadium, Austin TX
Description: This event is a rededication of Memorial Stadium on the UT campus in honor of Mr. Louis Jordan, a WW-1 veteran.  Mr. Jordan was from Fredericksburg, TX and an engineering student at UT when WW-1 broke out.  He went to war and was the first United States officer to be killed.  The rededication was a result of stadium renovations which required movement of the original 100' flagpole to a new location. During the ceremony, a 48 star flag was raised to full-staff, then half-staff while a group of local reenactment specialists (including our own members John K and Scott S) dressed in period correct WW-1 uniforms fired a 21 gun salute.  Moments later, a flight of four F-16 fighters screamed over the stadium.

As for the football game, each year, Texas plays Texas A&M in one of the countries rivalry games.  The club was asked to provide vehicles and members in uniform to assist with the rededication ceremonies.  For this event, we had Greg B's 1942 GPW, John K's 1945 MB and Scott S's 1953 M38A1.  Scott S (another "S") was also present for the activities and participated in the rededication ceremonies.
