Notable Pershing Rifles Alumni
Heritage List Heading.jpg

Since 1894, Pershing Rifles Alumni have been leaders not only in the military, and on the battlefield, but in Academia, the Arts and Entertainment, Industry, Science, Technology, and the Professions. They have excelled at all levels of Government Service, and have paid the ultimate price in defense of our country; two of whom were awarded the Medal of Honor. Attached is the Pershing Rifles Heritage List that identifies these outstanding alumni. There are no doubt others that have yet to be identified. The Heritage Committee of the National Society of Pershing Rifles Alumni Association is hard at work trying to identify additional notable alumni that should be added to the list. If you are aware of any former Pershing Rifleman who you feel belongs on this list, please provide that information to
