1) My Father Qa inducted into the 3rd Infantry Division’s Marne Hall of Fame
I’m over the moon delighted to share with you some great news. My father and my hero, MAJ Philip B. Larimore, Jr., was inducted into the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division’s Marne Hall of Fame at Fort Stewart Georgia on August 1, 2023.
I’m told that his election was, “By unanimous vote of the Command Staff of the 3rd Infantry Division.” This is a singular honor that’s been awarded to only a few soldiers such as Audie Murphy and some of the 3rd ID commanding generals. I was also told that Dad will be inducted along with Generals Dwight D. Eisenhower and George Marshall – pretty good company, if I don’t say so. He was also inducted with two of his commanding generals, General John W. “Iron Mike” O’Daniel and General Lionel C. McGarr.
My brothers, our spouses, and some of Dad’s grandchildren were there to honor his memory. You can see my blogs with additional details and pictures at:
You can learn more about my dad, who was the youngest ever graduate from the Army’s Officer Candidate School (OCS), the youngest commissioned Army officer in WWII, and one of the most decorated front line officers in Europe in the award winning book, At First Light: A True World War II Story of a Hero, His Bravery, and an Amazing Horse.
