Harlan Family Record Spring 2008

www.harlanfamily.org [cached]

William C. Harlan FORT LEWIS, Washington - First Sgt. William C. Harlan remembers seeing the pothole. He could not see the bomb hidden inside.

Harlan was standing in the squad leader hatch of a Stryker armored vehicle, leading a patrol in Mosul, Iraq. The Stryker passed directly over the pothole and the bomb erupted with massive force, catapulting the 20-ton vehicle several feet into the air.
Harlan was immediately ejected, blasted some 30 feet away.
"A staff sergeant, two vehicles back, he saw me fly out," Harlan recalled of the March 2006 incident. "I looked like a rag doll. He was convinced I was already dead."
The platoon medic, accompanied by soldiers, rushed over to administer first aid. Harlan, though critically injured, remained calm and directed the security and evacuation plan before being taken to a field hospital.
He earned a Purple Heart for his service that day in Iraq. But for leadership demonstrated last year in helping other wounded troops cope with suffering and rehabilitation, Harlan is the 2008 Army Times Soldier of the Year.
...
Norris was one of several soldiers who nominated Harlan for the honor.
...
Harlan had returned safely from previous tours in Afghanistan in 2002-03 and Iraq in 1990-91.
"We were all scared because none of us knew what was going to happen," Katy said as tears welled in her eyes. "Our mom told us our dad was hurt really bad, he was blown up, and that he might not pull through."
Harlan was hospitalized stateside for three months. He underwent 16 major surgeries to repair dozens of broken bones in his legs, and torn ligaments in his right knee. He recovered and walks again, and despite lingering physical and mental pain from the injury, elected to continue serving on active duty.
Indeed, even before he was medically cleared for duty, Harlan volunteered to help establish the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Lewis, Wash., a unit designed to help rehabilitate injured combat soldiers. Harlan also volunteered to spend time with the children of fallen soldiers as part of the post's Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).
"I needed to give something back to those who had helped me recover," he said.
Harlan, 39, grew up in Walnut Creek, Calif. He enlisted in the Army at age 20 in part because he wanted to serve his country. He opted against becoming an officer.
"I really decided I had more to offer the Army as an NCO than an officer," he said. "It's a personality thing. You have much more direct influence on young soldiers' lives as an NCO than you do as an officer."
His enthusiasm for the job hasn't been lost on his colleagues. "Leadership from the front, always," Capt. Matthew T. Kirby wrote of Harlan.
...
Harlan has received numerous awards during his military career, which he began as a mortarman with the 82nd Airborne Division. His Purple Heart and a pair of Bronze Stars adorn the walls of his apartment near Fort Lewis.
Harlan said an investigation into the Stryker bombing indicated the improvised explosive device was likely pressure-triggered and placed there by Sunni insurgents. Still, he said, he would return to Iraq without hesitation. Above all, Harlan said, he hopes his story inspires others. "I look at this as a great thing for all wounded soldiers who have struggled to come back," he said.
Sgt. Harlan's Headquarters Company is Fort Lewis, Washington. His assignment is to the 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division. He has served two tours in Iraq, in 2005-06 and 1990-91, and in Afghanistan in 2002-03.
Quote from the actual citation naming 1st Sergeant William C. Harlan as 2008 Army Times Soldier of the Year:
"First Sgt. Harlan's enthusiasm for his job is evident to all as he leads from the front. A true American hero who is essential to the continued success of our overall military operations stateside and overseas. We are proud to recognize First Sergeant William C. Harlan, as the 2008 Army Times Soldier of the Year."

During that same time period in ...

During that same time period in early 1986 I met Bill Harlan (managing partner/owner of Meadowood Resort) and agreed to promote croquet at Meadowood in the Napa Valley after the 1986 Shield tour in Great Britain.

...
Bill Harlan actually came over to Sonoma-Cutrer and introduced himself to me in early February, 1986. He said that it would be foolish to build courts and not have someone to promote the game and make them work. And so he said if I would come and work at Meadowood he would go ahead and build the courts. Brice's offer was not competitive relative to Harlan's and the potential of the Meadowood venue.
Tom's recollection is not clear, as he was very pro the development of the sport in any positive way. When he left Los Angeles after his bad car accident he feared he would never have the joy of playing croquet again in the same way. He was energized by the comradery that surrounded the game. But he subsequently became disenchanted and felt awkward with the juggling of the promotional business interests attached with the game at that time.
...
You know, I don't know how I ever came to know Bill Harlan. And I distinctly remember Bill being up here and [my] courts were built at that time.
MO: Were you involved in the building of those?
TLM: Yeah, and Bill and I, he was up at the greenhouses and we talked about the croquet, and I of course was so enthusiastic about it, and he said, I'm going to do that. And he went back to his partner who had not been killed at that point, I can't think of his name, who was killed in the helicopter crash, didn't want croquet there, he wanted the spa there, and the whole idea of the croquet court was just absurd and Bill said to his partner it's going to be there, I want it, and so croquet up here was the catalyst....
...
And Harlan, once he made his mind up that was the end of it. He didn't waste any time.
