The College’s sole recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest military decoration, was honored Feb. 21 in Schmucker Hall. Army Lt. Stephen Doane ’70 died in Vietnam in 1969 while saving men of his platoon. Sixteen platoon members attended the ceremony, which was part of Phi Kappa Psi's Founders Day Weekend. The fraternity also dedicated a marker in front of its Miller Hall on campus. Doane pledged Phi Psi before leaving school to join the Army in 1967.
