SGM (Ret.) Clyde E. Hyde Jr. (1999)

SGM (Ret.) Clyde Hyde is a believer in "hands-on." After serving as a Signaleer for 30 years – retiring in 1990 – he went on to command the 10th District Veterans of Foreign Wars; chaired Voice of Democracy; worked in the Reserve Officer Training Corps program; chaired a hospital’s annual Thanksgiving and Christmas basket program; and chaired the community service team for Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 649 in Augusta, Ga. He was the force behind developing the Navy Sea Cadet program at Spirit Creek Middle School in Augusta and is active in the local Boy Scouts’ programs and activities.

SGM Hyde was the first enlisted commander of the Advanced Noncommissioned Officers Course Company from 1985-1988 at Fort Gordon, Ga., and as commander was responsible for the health, welfare, morale and physical training of 1,100 senior NCOs attending ANCOC annually. He was also instrumental in getting the NCO course accredited.

SGM Hyde also served as division sergeant major and senior instructor for the Tactical Signal Operations Division in Company C, 447th Signal Battalion, from 1988-1990. He was responsible for choosing senior NCOs as instructors and for training 600-700 soldiers in two courses. In 1989 SGM Hyde was the driving force in moving two courses from old wooden billets to their present location, where he and his staff remodeled classrooms during the students’ Christmas exodus.

SGM Hyde worked his way up from a pole lineman to communications manager, instructor, senior drill instructor and first sergeant. He served as first sergeant of 56th Field Artillery Brigade in Germany; 26th Signal Battalion, Germany; and 67th Signal Battalion (concurrently as commander and course manager at the NCO Academy), Fort Gordon.

His awards and decorations include Bronze Star and Meritorious Service Medal with two oak-leaf clusters. The Signal Regiment inducted him as a Distinguished Member in 1999.
