LIEUTENANT GENERAL SAMUEL V. WILSON (Ret)

General Samuel V. Wilson was inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame for heroism, extraordinary achievement, and continued service to his country and the special operations community. General Wilson began his special operations service with the Office of Strategic Services and subsequently with the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), popularly known as Merrill's Marauders, in the China-Burma-lndia Theater during World War 11. As a highly decorated combat veteran, General Wilson returned to the United States where he entered the Army's Foreign Area Specialist Training Program. Upon completion of the program, he was assigned to various tours involving the Iron Curtain countries and the Soviet Union. His expertise was recognized quickly and he was assigned to several high level positions within the Department of Defense and Department of State. As a general officer, some of his assignments included: Assistant Division Commander (Operations), 82d Airborne Division; United States Defense Attaché to the Soviet Union; Deputy to the Director of Central Intelligence; and Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. General Wilson's expertise in the area of special operations has been recognized and he remains a consultant to the Secretary of Defense and the Congress for matters concerning both special operations and intelligence.

Webmaster's note: In 1967, (upon completion of my Special Forces Training) I was assigned to the 6th Special Forces Group at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.  My duty assignment was to Headquarters,  6th Special Forces Group where I worked for the Group Commanding Officer: Colonel Samuel V. Wilson.  Colonel Wilson was probably one of the most interesting and "visionary" people I had the good fortune of knowing and serving with during my time with the US Army.  From Colonel Wilson, I learned aspects of leadership that are rarely in the textbooks.
