Pen Woods honored

by Oklahoma City chapter

Military Order of World Wars

     Pendleton Woods served as a Pfc in B/394th Infantry, was captured and served five months in a German POW camp, and came out of the war as a corporal.

     He then was commissioned through the ROTC program on the GI Bill of Rights and served with the 45th Infantry Division in Korea. He eventually retired in 1983, as a colonel, from the Oklahoma Army National Guard.

     He has been recognized and honored by the Oklahoma City chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars by re-naming their chapter as "Colonel Pendleton Woods Oklahoma City Chapter." This was the first time in the history of the national organization that a chapter has been named to honor a living individual.

     He is looking forward to attending the Nashville Convention in September.
