Aubrey B. Stacy

Lieutenant Colonel Aubrey B. Stacy, United States Army, Malvern.  Lt Col Stacy is a 1966 Distinguished Military Graduate of Henderson State University in Arkadelphia. He completed two combat infantry tours in Vietnam; where he earned the 2 Silver Star Medals, 2 Bronze Star  Medals (one with a Valor Device), 2 Purple Hearts and an Air Medal. In 1989 he retired after completing over 22 years of service.  

On April 23, 1968 the Silver Star was presented to First Lieutenant (Infantry) Aubrey Bruce Stacy, United States Army, for gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force. First Lieutenant Stacy distinguished himself by heroic actions on 23 June 1967, while serving as a Platoon Leader with Company A, 4th Battalion, 23d Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, on a combat operation in the Republic of Vietnam. When his platoon sustained several casualties Lieutenant Stacy immediately placed his men on line and assaulted the enemy emplacements. He successfully overran the enemy positions and continued to pursue the Viet Cong although several heavy explosions rocked his track, causing the radio to be rendered useless. He then exposed himself to the intense enemy fire to give arm signals to his men, and succeeded in killing many of the fleeing insurgents. Lieutenant Stacy's personal bravery, aggressiveness, and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, the 25th Infantry Division, and the United States Army.
