Pflugerville Week - Pflugerville Fallen Warrior Memorial

The Pflugerville Fallen Warrior Monument was a community project and idea conceived by a group of concerned citizens after the death of Sgt. Byron Norwood in Falujah, Iraq in 2004. The Fallen Warrior Memorial Project quickly became a grassroots movement to locate and honor Pflugerville's military men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. It stands on a small rise on the bank of Gilleland Creek. Erected to memorialize Pflugerville's fallen sons from all the wars, the memorial was originally dedicated on November 11, 2005. Beginning in WWI through the conflict in Iraq, Pflugerville's memorial remembers twelve fallen warriors: Corporal William Wieland, Staff Sergeant Jose Riojas, Lieutenant Kermit Fuchs, Corporal Alfred Kerlin, PFC Roman Correa, Corporal Elias Lopez, Machinist's Mate Third Class Edmund Vorwerk, Lance Corporal Gaylon Douglas Smith, Sergeant Byron W. Norwood, Cpl Yari Mokri, Captain Sean Lyerly and PFC Ron Joshua, Jr.

The Fallen Warrior Memorial was designed by Britta Herzog and sculptor Cindy Burleson.
