In Memory of the finest individual and leader I have met.

I was one of the four cadets personally tutored by Butch in 1965. All four of us graduated. He was an outstanding cadet and individual far above average, a true leader. I broke the four minute mile in our AFOQT test, but came in second to Butch. Whenever i was challenged in life, I thought back to his example. His loss cannot be calculated as he would have had a vast impact on all he would have met.

His bracelet

I wore his bracelet proudly when I was a young girl. I am now 56 years old, and feel a deep connection to this young man. Thank you, for your service and giving me freedom.

Butch Baldridge was my friend and classmate at Texas A&M

Butch and I were in the Corps of Cadets and the Ross Volunteers together. He was well respected by everyone in the Corps and was the epitome of leadership, integrity and military bearing. I was proud to answer "here" for him at our first class reunion after his death in Vietnam. There was not a more gungho Aggie than Butch and I wish we could have grown old together and had the opportunity to reminisce at our class reunions.
