Richard Allenbaugh, who was born and raised in Rittman, recently was one of five inductees into the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame.

He explained a candidate must be nominated for the hall of fame after retiring, and a selection board chooses the inductees.He said he believed there were 30 or 40 nominees this year.
The 2002 inductees are referred to as "heroes of our past" in the ceremony program.This is the 15th year for the Military Intelligence Corps Hall of Fame.
Allenbaugh is a 1966 graduate of Rittman High School, where he played football, ran track and wrestled.
He has been married 33 years to the former Jacqueline Ann Yoder, who grew up in Wooster.His parents, George and Etholeen Allenbaugh, both still live in Rittman and attend Grace Brethren Church.His father served in the military in World War II.
"We certainly are proud that he is that able to do the things he (Richard) has done," said his mother.
Richard Allenbaugh began his military career in the army after college, when "Vietnam was going hot and heavy."
He said he expected to be sent to Vietnam as soon as he graduated from college, and "figured I might as well go as an officer, if I was going to go."
He joined the ROTC at Ohio University.
"His decision was to make the most of what he had to do, and he did it well, so he started out doing a good job in college," Etholeen Allenbaugh said.
Richard Allenbaugh said he "really enjoyed the people and the camaraderie and the team aspect of the profession."
After a brief stint in the field artillery branch, he requested and was granted a transfer to military intelligence.
He was a part of many military ventures, including participating as a G2, or senior intelligence officer and parachuting into combat with the 82nd Airborne Division during Operation Just Cause in Panama, which lead to the capture of Manuel Noriega.
He also spent time in Fort Bragg, N.C.; Fort Hood, Texas; Korea; Honduras; Germany; Army War College, Carlise, Penn.; the University of Kentucky in Lexington, and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. In fact, he missed by one week being present at the Pentagon on Sept. 11.

"I'm just thankful, when I look back, I'm thankful for everything that has been accomplished, and that we were fortunate that nothing real bad has happened while they were in the service, my husband and Rick," Etholeen Allenbaugh said.
Allenbaugh now is a senior manager with General Dynamics, supporting multiple contracts with the Department of Defense and National Intelligence Agencies.
As a wife and mother of soldiers, Etholeen Allenbaugh said she's no stranger to worry, but trust in God tempers her concern.
"I guess I went through that same thing in World War II, because my husband went to service right after we were married," she said, "so you just trust the Lord's going to bring them home."
