After his service as a Green Beret Sergeant, a medic with Detachment B-24, Company B, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), 1st Special Forces, Gary came back to the States to attend seminary, intending to return to Vietnam and work at a missionary hospital in Kon Tum Province, where he had served. Gary completed his seminary work, but after the fall of Saigon, he completed an additional advanced degree in counseling and became an effective school guidance counselor, pastoring on the weekends. To that end, his advice on developing the National Heritage Center’s education curriculum, especially regarding the character traits associated with the Medal of Honor, was indispensable.
