The Delta County, Texas Heros that Served Our Country

Delta County may be small geographically, but it has more than made up for its size with brave people that were willing to serve and give their lives for their country.  According to Franklin Jarrell, during World War II, over 1,100 people served in the military.
We encourage our Delta County family researchers to share additional information about the soldiers in their families that served during the Wars.  Photographs and stories are welcomed.
