On May 6, 2023, Chapter 78’s John Stryker Meyer spoke at the Special Operations Forces Ball held by SFA Chapter 29. “The Ballad of the Green Beret” was played and SF men gathered around MOH Recipient Col. (Ret.) Roger Donlon during the singing of it. He was genuinely touched by the camaraderie of the SF moment — an emotional moment indeed.

A video of this moment, courtesy of Norma Donlon, can be viewed below and on the SFA Chapter 78 YouTube channel .
