Edward C Allworth | World War I | U.S. Army | Medal of Honor Recipient

In honor of Fathers' Day, we want to highlight an incredible father/son legacy at OSU, as part of our Memorial Monday.

LT Edward Alworth, a 1942 graduate, jumped into Normandy as part of the 501st Parachute Infantry of the 101st Airborne. A 2nd lieutenant when dropped, Alworth earned a battlefield promotion and a Bronze Star for setting up an aid station and helping evacuate wounded despite his own mortar wound. He went on to a distinguished academic career as a historian specializing in Central Asia.

MAJ Edward C. Allworth graduated from OAC in 1916, and enlisted in the US Army in 1917. As a captain in 1919, Allworth was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity, above and beyond the call of duty, in action with the enemy, at Clery-le-Petit, France, 5 November 1918." He retired from the U.S. Army on 29 June 1922, and in 1925 Allworth obtained a position with the faculty of Oregon Agricultural College, now Oregon State University. He was instrumental in the construction of the Memorial Union and served as the first director of the MU. Allworth died in Portland, Oregon, on 24 June 1966 and was buried at Crystal Lake Cemetery, Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon.

The portion of HWY 20 by Reser Stadium, and the Oregon Veteran's Home in Lebanon are both named after this amazing leader.

Special thanks goes out to Mayor Eric Niemann for bringing this historic family to our attention.

In the midst of commissioning and the start of Cadet Summer Training 2021, we failed to recognize one of the most significant events of the last two weeks.

1LT Robert Horn Stewart, a 1943 OSU graduate (then OSC), turned 100 years old on June 3rd. After graduation, he joined the 95th Infantry Division and became a platoon leader for three 57mm antitank guns. In late 1944 the 95th joined Patton’s Third Army and became known as the “Iron Men Of Metz”. He was awarded a Bronze Star for action in and around Ensdorf, Germany in early December.

After the war, he became a physician and retired after 35 years of practice.

Please help us wish a belated happy birthday to one of our greatest Alumni!

Union Cemetery Association, American Legion, Rotarians, Local Civics Groups, Church Congregations, Scouts, 4-H and anyone who wished to honor the fallen, gathered to decorate these graves with American flags.

The team finished 28 out of 44 teams, finishing strong and moving up a spot during the last three events. They also finished first among the four teams that went through the events together.

This team showed an exceptional amount of tenacity, toughness, and teamwork. They represented themselves and OSU proudly receiving kudos from multiple evaluators and committee members for their fitness and proficiency. They showed that they will make outstanding leaders of character, and excel under the most trying circumstances.

Second ones in the water, first ones out- by a lot! One of the best Zodiac times of the day. The team in the back of the video started 90 seconds before the Beavs. Great teamwork!

Still cruising on the 9th of 11 events today. After 50 log sit-ups, 25 log presses, 200 meters of water jug carries, they still are cranking out another set of log sit-ups and presses. Next is the Zodiac raft crossing, in the water, where Beavers excel.

The Ranger Challenge team arrived at West Point and had an immediate impact. Yesterday, they completed a 3 person, 4.37 mile relay and functional fitness challenge to determine who gets to pick their starting event. CDTs Engle, Alt, and Hiatt finished 15th out of 40, and 4th among ROTC programs. 8th ROTC BDE had 2 of the top 4 ROTC programs.

Great Page to see how our future leaders are being guided and mentored. Also, a great place to ask open questions that might help others?
This looks like such a supportive community! I love seeing all the photos and inspiring articles shared on this page! I thought I might make a contribution of my own by sharing a documentary I saw recently and found really inspiring. The film is called Above the Best and it chronicles the incredible missions made by Army aviators to help their fellow soldiers fighting on the ground in Afghanistan. I really enjoyed the interviews shared in this film and getting to witness the honest and genuine perspectives of these heroes. I'd highly recommend! You can watch the film on iTunes or Amazon if you're interested.
The race between CDT Flores and SFC Spangler!
Were there any photos taken from the commissioning ceremony in June that we could see? Perhaps I missed them. Thank you. :)
