ANSBACH, Germany (Feb. 2, 2017) – As part of Ansbach Middle / High School academic awards ceremony today, the 9th Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps honored retiree and U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach community member Fred Haverly.

Haverly’s more-than-60-year career with the military began with his enlistment in 1952. He served in the Korean and Vietnam wars, retired from military service in 1972 as a command sergeant major, was the manager for a Class 6 store and military clothing store for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, and from 1994 to his federal service retirement in 2014 was a tax relief officer.

To honor Haverly and his service to the nation, cadets of the 9th JROTC presented him a “Quilt of Valor,” part of a grassroots movement to honor U.S. veterans.
