A Hero’s Remembrance

COL Stone Medal of Honor

Bringing history home

Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

“I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said. The challenge was convincing his friend and mentor - a man known for downplaying his heroism - to allow the new facility to be dedicated in his name.
 
Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
 
Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
 
The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
 
According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
 
Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
 
As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
 
“What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
 
At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
 
According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
 
Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
 
On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
 
 This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
 
It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
 
The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
 

The Ston Family Request

The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
 
James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
 
The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
 
Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
 
When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
 
After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
 
President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    Bringing history home

    Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
    80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

    Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

    “I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said. The challenge was convincing his friend and mentor - a man known for downplaying his heroism - to allow the new facility to be dedicated in his name.
     
    Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
     
    Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
     
    The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
     
    According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
     
    Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
     
    As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
     
    “What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
     
    At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
     
    According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
     
    Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
     
    On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
     
     This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
     
    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
     
    The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
     
    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
     
    Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
     
    The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
     
    According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
     
    Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
     
    As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
     
    “What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
     
    At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
     
    According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
     
    Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
     
    On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
     
     This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
     
    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
     
    The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
     
    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    Bringing history home

    Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
    80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

    Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

    “I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said.

    Bringing history home

    Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
    80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

    Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

    “I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said. The challenge was convincing his friend and mentor - a man known for downplaying his heroism - to allow the new facility to be dedicated in his name.
     
    Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
     
    Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
     
    The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
     
    According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
     
    Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
     
    As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
     
    “What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
     
    At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
     
    According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
     
    Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
     
    On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
     
     This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
     
    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
     
    The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
     
    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    Bringing history home

    Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
    80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

    Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

    “I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said. The challenge was convincing his friend and mentor - a man known for downplaying his heroism - to allow the new facility to be dedicated in his name.
     
    Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
     
    Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
     
    The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
     
    According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
     
    Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
     
    As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
     
    “What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
     
    At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
     
    According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
     
    Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
     
    On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
     
     This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
     
    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.

    Bringing history home

    Story by Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Eugene
    80th Training Command (TASS) Public Affairs 

    Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington did not take long to come up with a name he felt would bring a sense of history to the 90th Aviation Support Battalion’s new Army Reserve center. 

    “I recognized the narrow target of opportunity to honor a great American Warrior and at the same time provide our younger Soldiers an important link to our past,” he said. The challenge was convincing his friend and mentor - a man known for downplaying his heroism - to allow the new facility to be dedicated in his name.
     
    Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. James Lamar Stone was silent for some time before ultimately responding; “Now surely young man, you can find someone more deserving than me." 
     
    Darlington, the former senior enlisted advisor to the 90th ASB, told the story as part of Stone’s eulogy, sharing that he was struck by the Korean War hero’s humility, and his love of the Army the first time they met. 
     
    The two men forged a friendship after they met at a Veterans Day event at the VFW National Cemetery in Dallas in 2009. Darlington was among representatives of all the military services, but the only Soldier in uniform. He recalled a tap on his shoulder, and when he turned around, he saw Stone with the Medal of Honor around his neck.
     
    According to Darlington, Stone said, "'Young man, I want you to stay by my side for the day because I'm surrounded by all these other services, and I like seeing somebody in the Army uniform.'”
     
    Over time, Stone shared his combat experience and wisdom with Darlington, who developed an appreciation for Stone as a leader. Stone was a First Lieutenant serving in the Korean War when he led his outmanned and outgunned platoon against a battalion-sized enemy. Wounded three times over the course of the night, he continued to lead his men and fight, resorting to hand-to-hand combat before ordering his men to retreat as he remained with six badly injured Soldiers, all ultimately captured by Chinese forces. 
     
    As Darlington recalled, Stone would often say, “You know, a Colonel is just not a Colonel unless he’s around Soldiers.”  
     
    “What could I say to that other than “darn right, sir,” Darlington replied.  
     
    At the time, the 90th Aviation Battalion was temporarily operating in Grand Prairie Texas while a new facility was under construction. Darlington felt formally naming the Army Reserve Center after Stone would be a great way to “put younger Soldiers in touch with our past, and to connect the past with the present.”
     
    According to Darlington, reading about or watching history does not tell the whole story. “Since the building dedication, numerous Soldiers came to me to share their new found knowledge about the war,” he said. “I took that as mission accomplished!”
     
    Though Stone was terminally ill during his last two years, he attended as many 90th ASB unit events as he could. Darlington, currently the 800th Logistics Support Brigade senior enlisted leader, said he suspected that the colonel's time with the Soldiers helped keep his mind off his illness. He enjoyed interacting with Soldiers and frequently called the battalion inquiring about unit activities.  
     
    On Nov. 6 2011, Stone was the guest of honor as members of the 90th ASB’s officially dedicated their facility in his name - the Col. James L. Stone Army Reserve Center, Fort Worth, Texas. 
     
     This past fall, against hospice caretakers' advice, Stone attended Darlington’s Change of Responsibility Ceremony as the outgoing senior enlisted leader of the 90th Aviation Support Battalion.
     
    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
     
    The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
     
    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.

    It was the last time he would leave his home. Weeks later, Stone, the Korean War hero who retired from the Army with more than 30 years of service, died from prostate cancer at age 89 in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012. At the family’s request, Darlington, offered a eulogy at his funeral. 
     
    The legacy Stone leaves behind will be a source of pride for family, loved ones, fellow Soldiers and the nation. And through the efforts of a Soldier who understood the value of honoring our history, the legacy and spirit of a true hero will echo in the halls of the 90th ASB for generations to come.
     

    The Ston Family Request

    The Stone Family requested Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Darlington speak at his funeral. The following is an excerpt from his eulogy:
     
    James Lamar Stone enlisted in 1948 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. Three years later, the 28-year-old Stone was serving as a First Lieutenant and platoon leader with Company E, 8th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division, manning a hilltop outpost near Sokkogae, Korea. That very outpost later became known as Pork Chop Hill. 
    On November 21st, 1951, at about 9 p.m., Chinese forces launched an artillery and mortar attack against the outpost, followed by a series of infantry assaults. He led his platoon’s defense against the battalion-sized force. Just after midnight, a second Chinese battalion joined the assault, pitting his forty-eight man platoon against roughly eight hundred enemy soldiers. Wounded three times during the battle, then Lt. Stone continued to lead his men and fight, including hand-to-hand combat. Realizing the defense was hopeless, he ordered those men who could still walk to leave and rejoin the rest of Company E, while he stayed behind with the badly wounded to cover their retreat.
     
    The most amazing statement on his Medal of Honor citation that truly describes what kind of person and Soldier James Stone was, reads; When this final overwhelming assault swept over the platoon's position his voice could still be heard faintly urging his men to carry on, until he lost consciousness. 
     
    Just before dawn on November 22nd, he and the six remaining men of his platoon were captured by Chinese forces. After regaining consciousness, he was interrogated by the Chinese before being sent to a prison camp on the Yalu River.
     
    When the outpost was recaptured the following day, 545 enemy Soldiers were counted as KIAs, and credited to him and his platoon.
     
    After twenty-two months of captivity, he was released in a prisoner exchange on September 3rd, 1953.
     
    President Dwight Eisenhower presented then Lt. Stone the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27th, 1953.
    Colonel Stone retired from the Army in 1976 with 28 years of service. His service after retirement continued as he was the guest of honor and speaker at hundreds of events over the years. He remained active in his church and the community as well.
