                                                                                                      Capt. Gary L Herod Memorial Bench 
In March 1961, Texas Air National Guard, Capt. Gary L. Herod, was piloting his jet over Houston when his jet flamed out over a populated area.  Capt. Herod stayed with his plane attempting to find a runway or other safe place to land. He stayed with his jet to ensure that it would not crash in a populated area then ejected at the last minute around the Brays Bayou area.  He did not survive. In tribute to his sacrifice a Live Oak tree was planted at a bank in the Meyerland Plaza area. The tree recently had to be felled but was milled into lumber from which came the Memorial Bench that was crafted by members of the Woodworkers Club of Houston.  Please read more about Capt. Gary L. Herod.
