Our website is attracting some of our comrades in arms such as Olaf Georges from Fernspähkompanie 100—F S K 100.
On 22 October 2014, Major(Ret) Hermann Adler was inducted into the Distinguished Member of the Special Forces Regiment at a small private ceremony held at his home. LTG Charles T. Cleveland, Commanding General, US Army Special Operations and his staff performed the ceremony with LTG Cleveland performing the induction.
Detachment”A” members present were Gene Piasecki and Bob Charest.

Folks, some good news. The Fayetteville Observer article on our Memorial Stone dedication and my VFW article in the latest issue of the VFW Magazine got the attention of SOA, and were discussed at the recent SOA function in Las Vegas. Jimmy Spoo attended the SOA function and attended the Board of Directors meeting where he presented the VFW article. Both articles were reviewed and a discussion ensued as to why DET-A should become members of SOA.
The Board of Directors approved Det “A” for SOA membership.
I have been a member of SOA for decades and have attended several of these functions. They are great. Our push to get Detachment(A) out of the cold is working.
If you are interested in joining SOA, here is some contact information:

John Blevins has created a DET-A People and Places CD which he gave out at our 2014 DET-A function.
