Maj. Gen. (ret.) Merdith W. "Bo" Temple has been awarded the U. S. Army Engineer Association's 2014 Gold Order of the de Fleury Medal for contributions that “exemplify boldness, courage and commitment to a strong national defense,” says the association that represents the service's active-duty and retired engineers.

The award was set to be presented on April 25 at the Army Engineer School at Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo.

Temple retired in 2013 from a 37-year army career, which culminated in his service as Acting Chief of Engineers and Commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The award citation says that through his years of service, Temple “demonstrated inspiring leadership and exhibited unparalleled pride in the Corps and the Regiment."

It also notes Temple's "breadth of professional expertise ... in every organization he led, from combat in the Persian Gulf War to construction of complex, multi-billion dollar federal programs of national importance.”

Temple now is a senior advisor with Dawson & Associates, a Washington, D.C., regulatory consulting firm.

Also awarded the Gold de Fleury medal earlier this year is Frank Weinberg, who served 

 in a variety of army engineer units during combat in Vietnam, and went on to become a general manager at Caterpillar Inc. before retiring in 2006.

According to the citation, under his leadership, Caterpillar’s defense and federal products group provided a vast array of new equipment, engine and service life extension programs for several combat vehicles and construction equipment fleets for the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force.

“His leadership provided full-service combat contingency solutions for armor kits and forward repair parts support to deployed forces,” according to the citation.

Weinberg is an AEA director and served as president for six years.
