On a television show this morning, "Leave it to Beaver", Beaver was in school and the subject came up about the military. One student said, "I have an uncle who was in the War, he was almost a General". Another student asked, "Really?". The student replied, "Yes, he was a Sergeant"..................Smart kid...... Let that be a lesson for you men. Be sure to tell your grandchildren, you were almost, a "General"

WANTED for our "Honor Wall".

Note: Our group is in the Process of trying get recognition for our service as Infantry Squad Leaders and Platoon Sergeants in Vietnam. We hope to maybe get a place at the National Infantry Museum.
Maybe a place like they have for the OCS Graduates only more personal. The OCS Hall of Fame only recognizes those who got an MOH or made the rank of Colonel or above. No mentions of how may graduated or any individualy Class information. Nothing about who was killed in other wars or Vietnam.

To do this we have to show who we were and what we did in Vietnam. I am asking for you men to let me know of any outstanding awards you recieved in the service.

Medal Of Honor, Distinguished Servie Cross, Silver Star, Bronze Star for Valor, Purple Heart, Soldiers Medal, Army Commendation Medal with V.


Also, for you men who made the Army your career. What rank did you reach upon retirement.

The awards will be shown on the Wall of Honor. The retirement rank will be placed next to your name on your Class Page

Most people got a Bronze Star so I am only asking for one with the Valor pin and maybe Oak Leaf Cluster for more then one award.

To view the site, you can click here: NCOC Honor Wall

This site, will allow us to give to you men, some recognition also. I have now added the names of our deceased classmates and I am in the process of adding the names of you men.. Your names will be listed in the columns below their names and your Class graduation date will be listed in the column where their date of death is listed. I won't be adding the date your award was issued.

At this point in time, I won't add the names of the Casualties from Vietnam to the Purple Heart list.

Questions? Send info to:Budd Russell
