Remembering a classmate

As with other FA OCS Class 503-68 members, I remember Rich as the contemporary that we looked up to when we were challenged to tasks that needed to be strack, finished quickly, or finished quietly. He was a good friend to all of us and a real asset to our battery.

From a colleague in RVN

Capt Hulse was in my unit in RVN. More Strack than most in my battery. Commanded a platoon ( not mine) there. Well regarded. Knew his USMA history. Sad day when he crashed. Remembering him on this Memorial Day 2020.

Getting through O.CS.

As an OCS barrack mate of Richard Hulse I got to know a person who was the ideal q+military officer. We all became aware of his not receiving his commission from West Point due to a premature marriage. Their loss, our gain. It was like having our own personal Tac officer. Seriously doubt I would have passed the look leadership portion of OCS without his advice and guidance. His example was of great use as I went directly to Vietnam eventually in an infantry role. News of his death after my tour and stateside was one of the saddest points of my life. He was the best of us.

It's been 50 years

I was also a member of Richard's OCS class. Most of us, if not all, were college graduates and only a few had any military bearing, Richard was on the other far side of that curve. Our class got a two week leave during Christmas 1967 and I knew that Richard and his wife were expecting a baby at any minute. When I first saw Richard after the first of the year I asked him how the baby was. He thanked me for asking said unfortunately the baby had died. He was the strongest person I even knew. I was serving as a pilot in 1970 when I read he had died. He probably would have been a upper level officer had he survived.
