BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - A generous donation for the Texas A&M Class of 1960 will allow three student veterans at the Texas A&M Galveston Campus to receive the Aggie Rings recently.

Three former students from the class met the three recipients last month.

The three student veterans receiving Aggie Rings were John Vandewater, Robert Jackson, and Levi Wright.

Vandewater is a 20-year U.S. Army veteran. He is also a husband and a father of four.

Jackson is a Navy veteran and will soon be receiving his degree in ocean engineering.

Wright is a Coast Guard veteran and is currently pursuing a degree in marine transportation.

Since the class of 1960 began donating to purchase rings, they’ve been able to donate enough for more than 75 rings.

Members of the class say no veteran who has served our country should have to worry about additional financial burdens.
