21 January 1969
Letter Of Commendation
SP5 Robert A.
K Troop, 3d Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment
the occasion of my departure from K Troop, I wish to take this opportunity to briefly yet
formally commend you for your outstanding contribution to K Troop, 3d SQ, 11th ACR.
During my tenure of command, I was witness to a great transformation within K Troop, most
notably culminated by the magnificent results of the AGI on 7 January 1969.
transition or growing process was not automatic, did not come without transcending
hardship and obstacle and could not have resulted without much hard work, considerable
loyalty, tremendous devotion to duty and active participation in a team effort with an
unyielding will to do better.
particularly cite you for your efforts, for you, in a key position of leadership and
responsibility, were able to spark those under you in such a way as to strengthen the team
and insure this success, particularly in the AGI.
pride which you feel has been justly wrought as it should for every man in K Troop.
It is in keeping with the highest and most remembered traditions of the military service
and will surely lead to continued success on the battlefield.
copy of this correspondence will be placed in your 201 file.
Thomas R. Middaugh
