SP5 Robert Ruck - Yes. The Cold War Gallery is broken into three distinct sections, “The Army in the Cold War,” “Korean War,” and the “Vietnam War.” The “Army in the Cold War” looks at the how Soldiers served around the world during the Cold War providing a full timeline of the Cold War (1947-1991). This exhibit also explores the General Defense Plan.

Relating to the Pershing Missile System, the Museum will display the Pershing Missile Qualification Badge, which was an unofficial badge that could be earned by Soldiers in four of the field artillery battalions armed with Pershing missiles that were stationed in Germany.

GEN Gordon Sullivan Thank you for being here on RallyPoint to answer questions Sir. It is a real honor. You spoke at my graduating class of 2002 at the Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, PA following the attacks of 9/11 and there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd that day when you awarded the honorary graduation certificate to the wife and children of Col. Canfield D. Boone, 53, 2002, 2001 - honorary graduate and posthumously promoted to colonel.

What has been your most rewarding job or exeprience since your retriement from the Army?

The most rewarding aspect of my life has been my lifelong relationship with the Army. Since I’ve retired I’ve been the AUSA President for 18 years and am now Chairman of the Board of the Army Historical Foundation involved with creation of National Museum of the US Army - a place which provides all an opportunity to gain insights into the American journey since 1636 to today as seen through the eyes of the American Soldier.
