I was on campus that August day and I thank a fellow West Texan from Menard and I'm from Eldorado - big football rivals! - for all he did and in typical West Texas style, he proclaimed it was his job and all of the others were also there and helped.

Houston, It was a great pleasure knowing you and will always cherish your visits to the UT Tower when you were in town. Thank you for relating the true story of what occurred on that tragic day. You sir,are truly the real hero, since it was you, who stopped Whitman. You were never given the credit for your heroic actions and you never asked for it. You will always be given credit by me, every chance someone asks me if I was present at the Tower incident. I was not present, but we both share similar incidents. Thank you for making me your friend and for the photo. May you rest in peace.

A special thank you from one who was there. Officer McCoy's brave actions helped prevent an even greater slaughter than that which Charles Whitman accomplished. May he rest in peace. Job well done.
