Being on Post when Queen Elizabeth laid a wreath in the Fall of 1957

Being the seventh man in the Army to receive the TGIB on 7 Feb 1958. The first day they were awarded.

One day a Nun stopped at the North end of the mat while I was facing DC, at that time they could get that close to us, and I heard her say \" God Bless you son for what you\'re doing. It made a young man realize the impact our duty had on people.
