From California



MEMORIAL BY DONALD H. PRUITT, MSG, US ARMY (Ret.)

SFC Noel R. Southwick was formerly in the US Navy for several years before joining the Army and the Military Police Corps. I was stationed with Noel in Germany in 1962-63. I later ran into Noel in Vietnam during 1968 and spoke with him briefly during the TET Offensive. Noel was a dedicated soldier who loved his family and his country. I'm glad I became his friend and I enjoyed serving with him.
