Sgt Maj Al Hockaday
Al Hockaday and the U.S. Marines Corps were a match made in heaven. Parris Island changes your life forever. No one walks away from there the same,; he explained. ; I weighed 128 pounds when I arrived. After 16 weeks of training, I weighed 175 pounds and had put on a lot of muscle. When I got home on leave and knocked on the door, my father answered and said, 'Good evening, sir, what can I do for you?' I said, 'Dad, it's me! It's Al!' He couldn't believe how much bigger I was. One element of the heaven-made match was yet to be worked out. After basic training, Hockaday was assigned to steward school; he was to be trained as a cook. That prospect was more than he could countenance. He went to the office of Sergeant Major Huff and requested an audience. Once face-to-face with Huff, Hockaday sounded off, "Sir, the private does not want to be a cook. The private wants to fight. Get out of here!!!; was Huff's response. Hockaday bolted from his office and raced across the street, where he remained, standing at attention, until Huff left his office later that day. Seeing Hockaday, Huff yelled, Private, get over here! You're going to the infantry. Pack your trash and I better not hear anything but good things about you.; It's a safe bet that he heard nothing but good things about the young Marine he had rescued from the chow line. Hockaday loved his infantry duties. He moved quickly through the enlisted ranks, serving as a marksmanship instructor and drill instructor before volunteering for sniper training. "Vietnam changed the texture (of the experience) for me and a lot of other Marines. Hockaday stated matter-of-factly. ;In 1965, I received orders to go there with my unit. On Feb. 12, 1966, it was necessary to walk through a mine field while securing an enemy prisoner. The prisoner was able to detonate a mine. The explosion severely injured Hockaday's arm I thought my left arm was gone at first,; he continued. ;It's funny what one thinks about at a time like that. I thought, 'Well, at least I've got my right arm, and I'm right-handed.' Our radio had been damaged. We could receive, but we couldn't send. I passed out from the pain at one point, but eventually a chopper arrived and started to take us out. It was real hot, and that's not good for choppers. It started to shake and vibrate, and I thought, 'This is not going to be able to lift out of here. It's just not my day.' But then it did, and that was that.. After rehabilitation stints in Guam and Japan, he returned to Quantico as a drill instructor. His plans to ;be a bachelor forever evaporated when he met his wife-to-be Ernestine in late 1966. She was, and is, the most interesting person I've ever met. We'd have marathon talk sessions. We shared interests in theater and dining and such; They were married in March 1967. In 1970, Hockaday returned to Vietnam as a staff sergeant and platoon sergeant, not the safest role available in that conflict. While out on patrol on Feb. 12, 1971 the fifth anniversary of his wounds inflicted by a North Vietnamese mine Hockaday and his fellow Marines came under mortar fire. One of his men was bogged down in a gravel pit. As Hockaday lunged to shove the soldier free, a mortar round exploded in close proximity, propelling shrapnel into his chest, shoulder, both arms, and both legs. After recuperating, Hockaday served as a drill instructor at Officers' Candidate School and as a physical training instructor. He also served a tour of duty in Okinawa in 1973-74. My responsibilities and opportunities snowballed, but I absolutely enjoyed my workI absolutely enjoyed my work; he repeated. In June 1974, then-Gunnery Sergeant Hockaday was dispatched to the Institute as a member of the Naval ROTC detachment. I came to VMI with Col. George Holt Ripley, who was the first professor of naval science at the Institute. There were four of us Marines: a colonel, a captain, a lieutenant colonel, and me. It was an exciting time, and I liked the VMI atmosphere, he said. His first tour of duty at VMI ended with his promotion to First Sergeant. In the remaining 12 years prior to his retirement from the Corps, he was promoted to Sergeant Major and served tours at the Marine Barracks at 8th and I in Washington, D.C. as well as postings to Camp Pendleton, Japan, and Korea. During those years, Lexington and VMI were never far removed from Hockaday's mind. I received a letter from VMI in 1983 or 1984 telling me that whenever I was ready to retire from the (Marine) Corps that VMI would be glad to have me come back. We owned a house in the D.C. area and originally thought that's where we'd go when I retired, but Lexington started moving up toward the top of our list the more we thought about it, he explained. In 1989, after he had announced his intention to retire from the Marine Corps in 1990, he and his wife, who had decided that they would come to Lexington after his retirement and open a business, were visitingRecipient: Jennifer Nandlal, Barbara Bush
Teamwork Jennifer Nandlal demonstrates teamwork at our branch on a daily basis. She is in charge of coordinating our circulation volunteers as well as delivery and holds. Even though these are her main tasks, when she is not doing her normal circulation duties, she is knowledgeable about each and every circulation employee s tasks and is the first to pitch in when anyone gets backed up with their duties. Jennifer is someone we can always count on to help out with a cheerful and ambitious attitude. She has been known to get up from her lunch or break to help when she hears that the book drop or front customer service desk is being overwhelmed. Innovation At Barbara Bush Library, we and our customers have been very fortunate to have an employee as innovative as Jennifer Nandlal. She developed a highly successful cooking class for our YA teens. She had many obstacles in her way, such as finding the funds for the supplies and obtaining the correct permission forms for parents to sign, but she persevered and met every obstacle head-on to achieve her vision of helping instill her passion of cooking to our young customers. The program has been extremely successful. Before Christmas, the YA cooking class made a gingerbread house that was then displayed at our customer service desk. This again shows how innovative Jennifer Nandlal is. The elaborate gingerbread house garnered much praise from our customers and helped show our community how talented our local teens are. Job Performance Jennifer Nandlal is an efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable employee. She is knowledgeable in all areas of circulation and is one of the first people our circulation manager uses to train new employees due to her attention to detail and efficient work style. She handles her tasks well. As volunteer coordinator, she is also in charge of patron count. She always has the patron count sign-up sheet full of volunteers for this task so we don t need to lose employees for this endeavor, and she makes sure to call them all the day before they are scheduled to confirm that they will be here at the right time. Holds and deliveries is one of the most demanding tasks at this branch, but she always seems to stay ahead of the game, helping to train volunteers to help, and tirelessly emptying and shelving the holds herself. Leadership Jennifer has demonstrated her unequivocal leadership abilities by being in charge of our volunteers and our volunteer appreciation parties for the past three years. She has created wonderful themes for these parties. Last year s theme was an Aloha Party, and this year s theme is going to be an Academy Award type party. She handled everything from making out the invitations, to acquiring funds from the Barbara Bush Library Friends to help cover the costs, to the decorations and awards and the events and games. Jennifer showed her leadership skills when creating and developing a traveling module for the iHCPL Next Generation Online Maps module. When asked if she can help with these projects, she never shirks from the responsibility. She was also instrumental in helping many Barbara Bush Library employees learn the original 23 iHCPL applications. Our employees trust and admire her computer and internet knowledge and know they can count on her for any help. Customer Service Jennifer Nandlal s pleasant and outgoing personality has made her a favorite with many of our customers. Most of our regular customers know her by name, and she always treats everyone with respect and courtesy. She is an extremely positive and upbeat person and her smile always matches her enthusiasm for this job. Many of our customers have filled out customer recognition cards acknowledging the special help she has given them. She never gets frazzled, even with the most upset customers. She always keeps her cool and her smile and the customers appreciate it. She doesn’t think twice about helping a customer find their hold on the hold shelf, or help a first time customer learn about our self check machines. I’ve watched her jump up to help an older customer who was having problems reaching the bottom shelf for their hold, before they even got the chance to ask for help. This is what makes her customer service skills rise above everyone's. She is always anticipating the needs of our customers, so she is always ready to help.
