2nd Lt. Lloyd Herbert "Pete" Hughes, Jr.
(12 Jul 1921 - 1 Aug 1943)


Seven Texas Aggie Medal of Honor Recipients

There were seven men who had attended or graduated from Texas A&M University and who received the Medal of Honor in World War II. Texas A&M University renamed several dormitories after them. Every new Texas A&M cadet must learn their names. They are honored in the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M, College Station, Brazos County, Texas, USA.

The seven Texas Aggie Medal of Honor recipients are Hughes, Fowler, Keathley, Carswell, Leonard, Whiteley and Harrell.

As of 29 May 2010, six of the Medals of Honor received by these seven men have been donated or loaned to the Corps of Cadets Center at Texas A&M University in College Station, Brazos County, Texas, USA, and are currently on display there.
