During the Feb. 2 State of the Union Address, President Bush acknowledged Pflugerville resident’s William and Janet Norwood whose son, Marine Sergeant Byron Norwood, was killed in action last year in Fallujah, Iraq.
The loss of Sgt. Norwood deeply touched members of the Pflugerville community and more than 1,000 friends and family of Sgt. Norwood attended services honoring him at the Pflugerville High School Fine Arts Center. Late last year a group of citizens began gathering support and searching for a way to memorialize Sgt. Norwood’s sacrifice for his country.
