Camp Fannin Texas, was and ARMY infantry training center used to train military recuits before going into war in World War II. If you were sent to this training facility between the years of 1943-1946, you may be able to find a friend you fought with or relatives or friends of that person.
An honor roll of soldiers who trained there but were killed in action is at the memorial. The camp was named for Col. James Walker Fannin, a Texas Revolutionary War hero, who was masacred at Goliad.
Some of Camp Fannin's facilities were moved to the campus of Tyler Junior College for more use, and part of the base became the East Texas State Tuberculosis Sanitarium. Some of the men who trained there remain forever in cemeteries in the foreign lands, and many others, including Walker and Rulau, lived long and projective lives in the land they helped keep free.
