On May 19, 2011, RSRM Associate Irvin DeAndrei (Dee) Drummond was awarded the 2010 General Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award at the Pentagon. This award recognizes company grade officers who demonstrate the ideals for which General MacArthur stood - duty, honor, country. The award promotes and sustains effective junior officer leadership in the Army. Dee was one of only seven reserve officers nationwide to be recognized.
It goes without saying that we are extremely proud of Dee and this impressive accomplishment. For more information about the MacArthur award and its recipients, click here: http://www.armyg1.army.mil/macarthur/default.asp
“Duty, Honor, Country - those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.”
-General MacArthur’s Thayer Award Speech: Duty, Honor, Country (1962).
