    About Fredda Jones

    Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

      Not only are our military personnel, fire fighters, policemen, and first responders, but my 20 year old son was on I 10 at the Old and Lost River Bridge when he saw lots of people standing around. He stopped and saw a woman in the water with the current pulling her out toward the Gulf of Mexico. The next thing he knew his Marine training kicked in and he was stripped down to his under ware and his feet were almost in the water. Someone threw him an ice chest and he saved the young woman. The only people he heard from was the insurance company and the Highway Patrol wanting a report.

        Great comment! One thing I will say about no response…My daughter had a wreck at a time when there were multiple wrecks and not enough emergency vehicles to go around. Two teens beat out the windshield and drug her out. Then, an older couple put her in their vehicle with a heater until help arrived. She was 9 months pregnant and, of course, it was terribly stressful.

        She did get home with the names of the people who helped her, and she thought she knew where they lived. However, all of her notes came back undelivered. We then went back to the town and asked and asked and could not find anyone who knew any of the people who had helped her so much. We’ve always been so sorry that we could not thank them. This comment is the first time that it dawned on me that their names might be in an accident report somewhere.

        I assume Julie was so shook that she either got their names wrong or else she got the towns where they lived wrong.

      in Washington, D. C., several years ago, we were on a tour with a group from Comanche National Bank. We saw the monuments, and especially enjoyed the Korean monument, since my late husband, Darrell Jones served in Korea (7th regiment, 3rd division, U. S. Army) One monument that we saw brought tears to my eyes, and now I can’t remember where it was at. Except it is a bronze statue of several soldiers, and they had laced their dog tags in with their boot laces. Hoping if they are blown up, their identification, in their dog tags, would be still laced in their boots. this says so much, just like the picture that you have posted. thanks.
