    Right out of the gate, I would have said Colonel Wesley L. Fox but in comparing photo's it doesn't appear to be him.

    Scout: Agree

    JKamal - picture is of a Lt. Col (silver oak leaves) but that doesn't mean that was the individual's final rank. Field grade cover means not a General. The individual in the picture is wearing the Medal of Honor.

    I now think it could be Col. Harvey C. Barnum, Jr.
    Physical resemblance and a quick look at the awards seems to line up. Would have to do a deep dive to see if they are all the same.

    There certainly seems to be a resemblance.

    I would highly recommend using the English language properly, or at least coherently, in this forum.

    I just fell out of my chair.

    Can't tell if joking, or actually nuts.
