Fallen Aggie Hero project
Amid a global pandemic in 2020, BUILD continued to transform shipping containers into Texas Aggie Medical Clinics. COVID-19 warranted extra procedures to ensure our student members' and volunteers' safety and well-being. We are proud to say there was not one outbreak at the construction site during the whole construction period.
This year was unlike any year in that BUILD converted five 40 ft and one 20 ft shipping containers into four medical clinics, one educational clinic, and one general-purpose clinic. We are proud to have partnered with THE REACH PROJECT who will be receiving one medical clinic, one educational clinic, and a general-purpose clinic to help A&M's invisible contract service employees in College Station, Texas.
The Fallen Aggie Hero Project was created in 2018 to dedicate TAMCs to each of the 37 Aggie veterans killed on or after 9/11. In 2020, the third round of containers for this campaign will be sent to Nigeria, Mali, and Eagle Pass, Texas; three of the five containers will remain in College Station, Texas. The names of the brave men who served our country are listed below.
1. Captain Todd Christmas '00
2. Staff Sergeant Christopher Staats '01
3. Lieutenant Colonel Mark Stratton '91
4. Captain Ernesto Blanco '98
5. Sargeant Graham Woody '08
