 2005 Society of The 3rd Infantry Division Awards

At the 86th annual reunion of The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division in San Diego, California, Lynn Ball, Society Awards Chairperson, presented fourteen awards on behalf of The Society. Twelve of these awards recognized recipient’s service to the Society and/or their past military and civilian accomplishments, and humanitarianism. Two of the awards were announced for presentation to the family of MOH Recipient SFC. Paul R. Smith in honor of his heroic actions on April 4, 2003.

How Awards Were Determined: The recipient of the recruitment award was determined based on outstanding performance in recruiting new members, and the six President’s Special Awards for specific contributions to the Society were designated by Society President Jim Tiezzi. Recipients of the three Society Service Awards, the Associate Member Award, and the Audie Murphy Achievement Award were selected based on nominations sent to Lynn Ball who then prepared a package for each judge. The package contained all nominations, rules governing each award, and a ballot for each judge’s selections. The judges were our then Vice Presidents: Jerome Daddato, Central Region, and Carl Duncan, Western Region, with Society President Jim Tiezzi voting on behalf of Eastern Region Vice President Don Daly, who was out of the country during the voting period. The two MOH special tributes were announced for presentation to the family of MOH recipient SFC Paul R. Smith. (Jim Tiezzi accepted responsibility for delivering these awards, as no family representative was in attendance.) A list of the recipients and the awards received follows in the order in which they were presented:

·         LTC. Timothy R. Stoy, Recruiting Award and Society Dues paid for two years:

Direct assistance in recruiting 21 LIFE members: Outpost Europe #5845

·         Richard R. Guimond, President’s Special Award

·         Monika Stoy, President’s Special Award

·         M.B. Etheredge, Director, H.E.A.R.T.S. Museum, President’s Special Award

Outstanding service in WWII and to the community and state

·         Immediate Past President Jerome A. Manley, President’s Special Award

Service as Society President, Executive Committee Member, and Outpost Officer

·         Sherman W. Pratt, President’s Special Award

Service as Judge Advocate and service to our country in WWII

·         Lynn D. Ball, President’s Special Award

·         Past President Jerry Cunningham Audie Murphy Achievement Award

·         SFC Paul R. Smith, MOH Recipient

·         SFC Paul R. Smith, MOH Recipient

Framed tribute: superimposed over reproduction of MOH Medal and Ribbon was a certificate with details of Smith’s heroic actions

Lynn announced each award and the name of its recipient. Society President Jim Tiezzi, presented each award as the occasion was photographed. Following each presentation, Lynn read the recipient’s nomination and announced the name of its author. While the Awards Ceremony is a very solemn occasion, Lynn shared the humor associated with her own award. At the insistence of President Tiezzi, Lynn was to receive an award, also. However, since Lynn builds the President’s Awards, she had to generate her own award—which she referred to as a “Do-it-Yourself” award. Nevertheless, she is very proud of the recognition she received.

            While not so recognized at the Awards Ceremony but noteworthy nevertheless is the fact that Outpost #35 Member Justin Valle, a graphic artist, contributed his services in designing and producing the intricate artwork for SFC Smith’s tributes. We thank him for this and past services to the Society.

Thanks for your email and sorry that you and Monika were not able to attend the reunion. I do hope that Monika is feeling better as she is a 'wonder woman' to do what she and you have done to create the "Outpost Europe" and the "Route of the Marne" with the markers being placed in towns liberated by the 3ID in WW II.

For your accomplishment in recruiting members for OP 5845 Europe, you will be receiving an annual membership in the Society with dues paid for two years and a plaque.

For Monika's idea and her development and outstanding efforts in establishing the European Outpost, she has been granted a President's Award for the contributions she has made to the Society and the 3ID.

These awards were announced at the banquet and Awards program at the reunion. Both of these awards are being shipped to you by Lynn Ball, Chair of the Awards Committee and you should be receiving them soon.

It was an honor for me to be able to participate in the awarding of these honor to both of you for outstanding effort and service to the Society of the Third Infantry Division.

Rock of the Marne and Can do,
Jim Tiezzi, President
