U.S. Army Col. Jeremy Bowling ’94 Receives Promotion

Col. Jeremy Bowling ’94 was promoted to colonel in a small ceremony held in the Pentagon on Nov. 2, 2020. He is currently assigned as the Executive Officer for Headquarters, Dept. of the Army G3/5/7 and is also the Senior Defense Fellow at Georgetown University’s International School of Diplomacy.

Bowling and members of the battalion he commanded (3-187 Infantry) were featured in a documentary produced by Fox Nation entitled “Heroes of Hamburger Hill,” a tribute to the Vietnam Veterans of 3-187 Infantry who fought the infamous Battle of Hamburger Hill in May 1969. The documentary shows the power of redemption and peace as Bowling took his men back to Hamburger Hill (Hill 937) in the A Shau Valley where they finally reached the summit of the hallowed ground on which soldiers had fought 50 years ago. The film follows the story of James Greene, who never received the awards and decorations he earned for his service because he was evacuated after a near-death encounter with the enemy. Fifty years later while standing atop the Hill, he shares his story with Bowling, who took responsibility for correcting this mistake and a year later is able to present Greene (above right) with his awards in a ceremony featuring the governor of South Carolina, the Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs, and country music artist Craig Morgan.
