A visit to the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial may now leave you with the contact information for an old friend. Monday, a high tech touch screen computer was unveiled at the park. Now visitors can get to all kinds of information 24-hours a day.

On the computer you can access contact information for any veteran whose name is carved on the honor wall.

Donated by Texas Digital Systems the computer will also give you information about the memorial's history. And you can see pictures of the veterans too.

Also unveiled was the The Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial , Travis B. Bryan, Jr. Freedom Pavilion.

The Pavilion was named by the mayor and city council of College Station, in honor of Travis B. Bryan, Jr., Senior Chairman of The First National Bank of Bryan and veteran of the United States Navy during World War II.

Former President George Bush dedicated the 12-acre Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial in November of 2002. It currently has more than 4,000 veterans' names on the honor wall.

The Travis B. Bryan, Jr. Freedom Pavilion was funded by the Bryan Family, College Station, Bryan and Brazos County.
