The Larry Strickland Memorial Fund and Scholarship

SGM Larry L. Strickland served in the Army for 30 years. He was serving as sergeant major to the Army’s deputy chief of staff for personnel when he became a victim of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon.

Family and friends of SGM Strickland instituted a memorial scholarship fund and leadership award program in 2003. The Association of the U.S. Army will administer the fund.

Larry Strickland Leadership Award and Scholarship
Awarded annually to a noncommissioned officer who best exemplifies the Army’s vision and influences others in shaping future leaders while practicing excellent stewardship of the nation’s most precious resource - our soldiers.

Each recipient will receive a bronze eagle and $4,000 to assist in covering the costs of an education that tuition assistance does not pay, such as instructional fees, laboratory fees and books. His or her name also will be engraved on a permanent plaque at the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy, Fort Bliss, Texas.

The award is presented annually at the Senior Noncommissioned Officers Conference at AUSA’s Annual Meeting.
