John Cobb Volunteer Award

John Cobb was a a mainstay at Fort McKavett for many years.  He spent many years volunteering at the Fort, but was also the President of the Friends of Fort McKavett for many of those years.  While it may not be possible to thank John for many years, months, days and hours he put into the Fort, we are happy to announce the creation of the John Cobb Memorial Volunteer Award.  This award will be given to a volunteer that has come close to dedication, willingness, as well as time that John put in, to make this Fort  better place.  The present Visitors center is not large enough to display all the wards that Fort McKavett has earned over the years as well as this one.  So, physical award will be given and displayed to winners in the future when a new physical structure is built that can hold such a award.Until then, this page will be here to not only remember John Cobb, but also those who have helped Fort McKavett in unforgettable ways.
