According to the Brazos County Historical marker, the drill field was the site for the Corps of Cadets to practice drill formations, artillery and infantry exercises and pilot training in the 1920s. The annual Bonfire was built on the field from 1909 to 1955. Fifty-five oak trees were planted after World War I for each Aggie killed in combat. The field was named in 1985 for Lt. Gen. Ormond R. Simpson, class of 1936 who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He joined the A&M faculty in 1972.
