“You lead from the front,” is the motto of the Sgt. Audie Murphy Club, and seven non commissioned officers at the U.S. Military Academy were inducted into the club during a ceremony Aug. 2 in the Haig Room. SAMC recognizes those NCOs who have contributed significantly to the development of a professional NCO Corps and combat ready Army. Members exemplify leadership characterized by personal concern for the needs, training, development and welfare of Soldiers and concern for families of Soldiers.
