This is a scholarship program that was set up for my friend Doug. He died in Iraq January 7th, 2006. He was my son’s godfather and a good friend. He was also my last platoon leader in the Army, I was his platoon sergeant. I miss him all the time. Any help you can give to this great scholarship program in his name would be appreciated. Please pass this on. You can read more about Doug here. Please help out if you can. I’ll leave this at the top for a while. Thanks.
Since his passing in 2006, the memory of our friend and loved-one, Major Douglas Amuel La Bouff has been honored by his fellow Cal State Fullerton historians during the annual banquet of the Theta Pi chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society.
Doug’s achievements as a person, scholar and military officer are remembered through a memorial scholarship awarded to history students who embody Doug’s patriotism, and love for history. Named the “Major Doug La Bouff Memorial Scholarship,” a handful of historians have benefited from modest monetary awards that they can use to advance their study of history.
We are asking your help to expand the scholarship to help more up and coming historians further their studies. We are also planning to obtain a plaque that will record past and future awardees for years to come. Please help anyway you can by mailing a check or money order no later than 23 April 2012 to:
Phi Alpha Theta
C/O Dr. Jochen Burgtorf
Cal State Fullerton, Department of History

Awardees for the 2012 Major Doug La Bouff Memorial Scholarship will be announced on Friday, 4 May, 2012 during the 50th Annual CSUF Phi Alpha Theta Banquet.
Thank you for your support!
