CW4 (Ret.) Willie J. Battle (1998)

CW4 (Ret.) Willie Battle retired from the Army in 1990 after 30 years of service to the Signal Regiment and U.S. Army.

The native Georgian served first as a radio and teletype operator, then he was appointed a warrant officer in 1972. His enlisted and warrant officer assignments included senior control supervisor for the Command Control Center, Headquarters Signal Group 22, U.S. Army Strategic Communications Command Europe; team chief of integrated communications systems, Contract Management Agency-Vietnam; chief instructor, Strategic Microwave Branch, Fort Monmouth, N.J.; communications-electronics repair technician for 2d Armored Division, Fort Hood, Texas; and communications-electronics repair technician for 2d Infantry Division, Korea. He served, after being selected by the U.S. State Department, as a member of a communications-electronics team supporting the military forces of Somalia and later as chief of the Maintenance and Calibration Branch of the Signal Center’s Signal Leadership Department. Chief Battle was among those selected by the Army’s Chief of Staff to evaluate communications-electronics maintenance teams throughout the world. His final assignment was as chief of the warrant officer proponent section in Office Chief of Signal, Fort Gordon, Ga.

Chief Battle was known for his physical fitness. An Army physical fitness award, in fact, is named for him and goes to the Army’s warrant officer candidate who receives the highest score on the Army physical fitness test.

Chief Battle is also president and founder of the nonprofit organization "Men Making a Difference." The organization works to improve the quality of life spiritually, mentally and physically of youth and parents in the Central Savannah River Area.

Some of Chief Battle’s awards and decorations are Vietnam Service Medal with four campaign stars, Meritorious Service Medal with oak-leaf cluster, Bronze Star medal, Silver Order of Mercury and Legion of Merit. He was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Regiment in 1998, along with his appointment as Honorary Warrant Officer of the Regiment.
