Records of Harvard Heroes Wanted!
The advocates for Harvard ROTC (www.advocatesforrotc.org) seek to memorialize too-long-forgotten Harvard veterans in the Hall of Heroes section of its website. Relatives, friends, and classmates are encouraged to provide information about Harvard alumni who received major military awards for valor, such as the Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, and the Silver Star. Biographic summaries of alumni recipients of these medals for valor are nearly complete for World War I. However from World War II to the present time, our current knowlege of alumni who received these awards is sketchy. Please contact Captain Paul E. Mawn (USN-Ret.) ’63, chairman of the Advocates, at: [email protected] or at 978-369-8744 (work) if you have any information on these Harvard Heroes. At a minimum, please furnish: the name, service award, rank, and branch, as well as Harvard class of the recipient, but any additional information, including home town, personal background, award citation, etc., will be greatly appreciated and used.
