12A54 Posted January 15, 2019 Share #1 Posted January 15, 2019 I began documenting these men years ago and wrote their stories as a commemoration of their service for the 100th anniversary of WWI. Because VMI had omitted these eight from their Hall of Valor (only US-decorated veterans are commemorated), I sought to have them included. The culmination of my project was to acquire (replica) medals and have them framed for donation to VMI in the hopes of having them remembered alongside their contemporaries. [As 2018 arrived, I included all VMI men who were decorated with the DSC or NC and the result was an 84-page e-book with all their stories (as well as a few others who were notable). The book is available through a GFM campaign that seeks to fund the cost of medals and framing. If you'd like a copy, please consider a donation of any amount - $5, $10, or even more if you can. With your donation, please include your email and I'll send you the pdf e-book that can be downloaded to e-readers or other devices.] https://www.gofundme.com/honoring-allied-alumni&rcid=r01-154758239992-f59c259615ea4d08&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w Here are their stories.
