Information found on this cadet - Lieutenant Colonel, H. Neal Troy, Active Army Reserve (retired) (07/09/28 - 09/08/19) A proud cadet graduate of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, Neal earned both BS and MS degrees in ceramic engineering. He was then deployed as an Infantry Officer during the Korean Conflict from 1951 to 1953. Until just three years prior to his death, Neal had been traveling annually to Blacksburg to attend the cadet reunion and to march onto the field with the other cadets at the beginning of a football game. It would be nice to see this uniform reunited with his family.
