Eugene Marsh 1969 Banshee

My Fellow Banshees,

I served with you in Vietnam 1969, B Troop 2/17th Cavalry.   On May 15, 2014, I graduated from Rider University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts and a minor in history.  In addition, Rider University selected me to deliver the “Commencement Address.”   I became the first African-American and Vietnam Veteran to receive this distinct honor.

Here is a link to the 2014 Rider University Commencement Address that I delivered on May 15.


On September 9th, I was honored by the First Lady of NJ, Mrs. Mary Pat Christie, where I received the "Heart of a Hero" Scholarship.

In addition, I was honored on October 18th at Mercer County Communication College, where I received the Alumni Leadership Award and my Associate in Science Degree / Architectural. 

I am in graduate school at Rider University, pursing a master's in Clinical Mental Health and I am currently writing my life story, beginning in South Carolina to completing my college education.

For my brothers who may or may not remember me, I have attached a picture of self with the First Lady of New Jersey.



If you have Vietnam Era pictures or events that you would like to share in my book, please email the item to me at:  MARSHE66.EM@GMAIL.COM.  I would welcome, in addition, group pictures of the unit which I would possibly like to include in my book.

Please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address MARSHE66.EM@GMAIL.COM.

Eugene Marsh, Vietnam Veteran
