The South Carolina State University Army ROTC Hall of Fame Electoral Board is scheduled to meet on 8 November 2007 to select nominees for induction into the 2008 ROTC Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame was established in March l977 to honor ROTC graduates commissioned through the program and pursued military service as a career and: (1) attained the rank of Colonel or higher; (2) attained the rank of Second Lieutenant or above and awarded the Bronze Star Medal with V-device or a higher award in the nation’s defense through acts of gallantry as determined by Department of Defense documentation; (3) those ROTC graduates who did not pursue the military as a career, but made significant contributions to society or achieved national prominence.
I am asking that you please submit nominations no later than 9 October 2007. Nominations should be accompanied by a biographical sketch which should include date and place of birth, a summation of achievement(s) for which the person is being nominated, civilian and military education, current employment, a “Class A” bust photo of the nominee, and a current address. Biographical sketch should not exceed two pages.
The ROTC Hall of Fame serves as an inspiration and a source of pride for the South Carolina State University community. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. Point of contact for this action is Captain Edwin A. Aycock, at (803) 536-7233 or (803) 533-3604.
