Gregory Beck '63

Gregory Beck joined the Army to go to helicopter fight school in the late '60s.  After finishing his training, he shipped out to Viet Nam-like most helicopter pilots-and flew Huey Gun Ships.  He lasted his 9 months, and was sent back to California to finish his military duty.  However, because of certain circumstances, he voluteered to do another tour of duty in Viet Nam.  By this time the Army had a new helicopter called a Cobra which Greg flew.  It was faster and had more fire power then the converted Huey.  On his way back from a mission,  "Hamburger Hill," Greg's helicopter crashed and burned. He was a highly decorated Chief Warrant Officer, and we all are be proud of his service.

Colonel Jeff Ullmann '86

Colonel Jeffrey R. Ullmann is the Commander, 18th Mission Support Group, Kadena Air Base, Japan. The 18th Mission Support Group is the largest group in the U.S. Air Force with a direct budget of $10 million, service revenues of $62 million, and 4,200 military and civilian members comprising five squadrons. The group is also responsible for the operation of the Okuma Recreation Facility on Okinawa as well as the Bellows Air Force Station Recreation Facility in Hawaii. Colonel Ullmann was commissioned in 1990 through the Reserve Officer Training Corps program after graduating from the University of Southern California. He commanded Civil Engineer Squadrons at Balad AB, Iraq, and Langley AFB, Va. Colonel Ullmann served in various civil engineer positions at the base, major command and Air Staff levels. He led civil engineer units deployed to Operations Iraqi Freedom, Southern Watch, and Provide Comfort.

Michael Van Derwood '97

Michael joined the Marines for several reasons. One, he wanted to continue serving his country, which he has been doing all his life in some capacity. Two, he wanted the leadership training and experience that he knew the Marine Corps would provide. Three, he wanted to be a member of an elite organization known for its high standards and toughness. Finally, Michael wanted to experience war and combat, which despite its horror and awfulness, seems to be a part of our human condition (as evidenced from most of our history). He determined that to be in a position to change that condition, he needed to know about it first-hand.

I served active duty from 2005 to 2009. I was with 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 5th Marine Regiment. Later, I served in HQCO, 5th Marine Regiment. I deployed twice to Al Anbar Province in Iraq. From 2009 to 2011, I was in the Marine Corps Reserves and served as the Company Commander of "A" Company, 4th Landing Support Battalion, 4th Marine Logistics Group.
