WILLIAM O WOOLDRIDGE
Combat hero of World War II and the first Sergeant Major of the Army
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To:/Thomas Alford/all best wishes/William Wooldridge/SGM of the Army/Jan 67" as Sergeant Major of the Army. B/w, 8x10. Accompanied by a transmittal letter on official letterhead from his administrative assistant, dated 1967 January 5. William Woodridge served as a combat infantryman throughout the European Theater of World War II, from North Africa to Sicily to D-Day to the Battle of the Bulge and on into Germany. His many decorations included two Silver Stars, not to mention a Purple Heart. He served two tours in Vietnam, the second as Sergeant Major of the Military Assistance Command (MACV). As the first Sergeant Major of the Army (1966-1968), he pursued many initiatives to improve conditions for, and further professionalize, the noncommissioned officers corps. Wooldridge's reputation was tarnished somewhat when he acknowledged having receiving free shares of stock in a company supplying NCO Clubs in Vietnam. After retiring from active duty, Sergeant Major Wooldridge continued to teach at the Sergeant Major Academy (Fort Bliss Texas) a school he had advocated as the Army's Sergeant Major. Fine condition.
