STAFF SERGEANT (CSM RETIRED) ROGER PUTNAM
The Columbus Inquirer published this article about one of our heros in 1967, and while Roger probably would take exception to such publicity, his reputation deserves the spotlight within our history files. From long ago, the past comes calling to fortify that deserved reputation, helped by this printed story. A benefit to these history pages is more history, roughly stated, as is usual, for the fast-moving, often unexpected, sometimes audacious display of this unit's touted and daring skills, intense decication, reputation, and legacy.
For his actions and bravery, Roger Putnam was awarded the Silver Star Medal
