On Jan. 7, 2016, MG Neyko Nenov (1961-2015) was inducted into the USAWC INTERNATIONAL FELLOWS HALL OF FAME
My father graduated from USAWC, Carlisle, PA in 2002.
The U.S. Army War College established the International Fellows Hall of Fame on 1 October, 1987. The hall of fame provides a prestigious and visible means of honoring international fellow graduates who have attained, through military merit, the highest positions in their nation’s armed forces, or who have held an equivalent position by rank or responsibility in a multinational military organization.
General Nenov became the 59th inductee into the International Fellows Hall of Fame.
My Father was honored in 2014, but he didn’t live to make it for the ceremony in 2016. On Jan. 7, 2016, I (Stanimir Nenov) and my mother (Despa Nenova) had the honor to be present at the Induction in Carlisle, PA.
This is a great honor for Bulgaria and the Bulgarian army for which my Father served during his life
The event was held at the USAWC in Carlisle. There was a presentation about my Father’s career, induction into the Hall of Fame, followed by my speech on behalf of the family.
General Campbell, former commander of U.S. Army Europe:
“Maj General Nenov was a tremendous partner and friend during my tenure (at) USAREUR.”
After learning of MG Nenov’s passing last year, Gen Campbell said: “MG Nenov was always very proud to have graduated from the U.S. Army War College, I was proud to have served with him to help provide for a safe and secure Europe. Bulgaria and NATO have lost an exceptional leader, and the United States has lost a great friend.”
