The Congressional Medal of Honor Society regretfully announces that Kenneth E. Stumpf, Medal of Honor recipient, passed away Saturday, April 23, 2022, in Tomah, Wisconsin, at age 77.

On April 25, 1967, U.S. Army Spc. 4th Class Kenneth E. Stumpf was in Duc Pho, Vietnam, when his platoon came under heavy fire from well-fortified enemy bunkers. Three of his fellow servicemen fell wounded.

Ignoring the fire that was concentrated on him, Stumpf left cover three times to carry each one back to friendly lines. He then organized the remaining men to neutralize two enemy bunkers. Stumpf took on a third bunker by himself, despite machine gun fire directed on him, enabling the success of the mission and preventing further loss of American soldiers.

For his actions that day, Stumpf was presented the Medal of Honor by President Lyndon B. Johnson on Sept. 19, 1968, in a White House ceremony.

Stumpf was born in Neenah, Wisconsin, on Sept. 28, 1944. He was drafted in 1965 from a factory job. He served three tours in Vietnam. In 1994, he retired from the Army as a Sergeant Major after 29 years of service.

When asked about his actions that day, Stumpf replied, “I’ve always said I didn’t do anything above and beyond the call of duty. What I did was my duty. I had to do that… it was a responsibility that I had to my men.”

We honor you, Kenneth Stumpf.

On April 16th, We wished a Happy 100th birthday  to veteran Harper Coleman of the 4th Infantry Division's 8th Regiment. A survivor of the Normandy Invasion and beyond, Coleman later remembered of the D-Day landings: 

"Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr. was standing there waving his cane and giving out instructions as only he could do. If we were afraid of the enemy, we were more afraid of him and could not have stopped on the beach had we wanted to. Our squad of six was down to four very early; we lost one person on the beach and one when we came to the higher ridge just over the sandy area. We made a left turn as we came over the top of the beach on what seemed to be a path. Moving as fast as we could, we came to a road that came down to the beach. This took us through the swamps that were behind the beach and had been flooded by the Germans. We came up on the small town of Pouppeville. This is where we begin to see the results of our work—our first dead enemy. Shortly beyond the town we began to meet some of the airborne troops. As I recall, they were rather glad to see us and joined in with us where they were needed." 

We wish Coleman continued health and happiness on his birthday. Steadfast and Loyal. 

We honor you, Harper Coleman.

On the evening of Saturday, April 23, 2022, we learned of the tragic death of Deputy Steven Eatchel.  Steve was piloting a small airplane, flying out of Cedar City Airport.  Flying with him was his wife, Lindsay, and two other passengers.  After takeoff, they turned east toward the mountains.  A few minutes later the plane crashed.  Iron County Sheriff's Office officials responded and reported that there were no survivors of the crash.

Deputy Eatchel has worked for the Sheriff's Office for nearly 12 years and was currently assigned in Judicial Services working in the courts.  Steve and Lindsay leave behind four children. 

The Utah County Sheriff's Office expresses its sincerest condolences to the Eatchel family.  His kind manner and ever present smile will be missed.

We honor you, Steven Eatchel.

Col. Bruce “Ol’ Snake” Crandall is the bravest, craziest, funniest helicopter pilot I ever met in 43 years of going to war.

On Nov. 14, 1965, during the Vietnam War’s Battle of Ia Drang, Snake and his wingman, Maj. Ed “Too Tall to Fly” Freeman, led 16 slick Hueys into Landing Zone X-Ray again and again – hauling in 1st Battalion 7th Cavalry troops, hauling out their wounded, and hauling in resupplies of ammunition, water and medical supplies. When the LZ got so hot that Lt. Col. Hal Moore closed it, “Snake” and “Too Tall” just kept coming.

Both of them earned the Medals of Honor they received for their actions. Scores of the wounded are alive today because of their heroism. “Too Tall” Ed died in August 2008, breaking up a partnership and friendship that lasted half a century. “Snake” Crandall carries on the mission at 81, traveling the United States and war zones around the world, visiting our troops.

We honor you, Bruce Crandall.
