- Prior Years
2010 marked the first year that the Homer Case Medal of Patriotism was awarded. Brigadier General Homer Case died in April 1996 at age 101. He was a veteran of three major wars and the oldest general in the United States when he died. He grew up in Marshfield and never forgot his hometown, even contributing to the construction of the Garst Memorial Library.
Case served with Gen. John J. Pershing at Verdun and celebrated Armistice Day in Paris. Before America’s entry into World War II, Case was sent to London as a military intelligence officer. He later served in the war under Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower in Europe and Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the South Pacific.
