Major General Stanley H. Hyman:
A Decorated Vietnam Veteran

by Seymour “Sy” Brody

Major General Stanley H. Hyman was able to use his intelligence information to predict the enemy's intentions and plans which helped American commanders fight the enemy in the Vietnam War.

Hyman was a major when he received the Legion of Merit by the direction of the President of the United States. He was attached to the Military Intelligence of the U.S. Army in Vietnam from August 1968 to August 1969. It was for his excellent work during this period that he received his decoration. Utilizing his extensive intelligence experience, Hyman was able to acquire a voluminous amount of information.
His citation reads:
"Through his initiative, resourcefulness, adaptability to change and readiness to resort to the expedient, he has contributed immeasurably to the Free World effort in the Republic of Vietnam. Major Hyman's professional competence and outstanding achievements are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit on himself, his unit and the United States Army."
Hyman quickly rose through the ranks to become a major general. He was born on June 25, 1936, in Long Branch, New Jersey.

Hyman is married to the former Rosala Carol Mersky and they have four children.
