Obituary for Lung Ngoc Hoang

Colonel Lung Ngoc Hoang was a highly respected and decorated leader of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, a scholar, an author, and cherished husband, father, and grandfather.

His military career began when he graduated from the famous National Army training corp as a Lieutenant at the age of 20. At the age of 22, he was promoted to Battalion Commander and was the youngest Captain, commanding nearly 500 soldiers of the 720th Battalion in the Mekong Delta. In 1971, Colonel Hoang was officially appointed as Head of Section II of the Commanding General's Office, or chief intelligence officer. He was highly respected by many for his integrity, significant contributions and leadership, and awarded the highly esteemed National Medal of Honor and the Legion of Honor of the United States, as well as accolades from American military organizations, the Allied Forces, the King of Thailand, the government of Korea, and the government of Taiwan.

Even with a prestigious military career, most important to him was his family. He was a loving husband to his wife, Elizabeth (Thao Minh Do) Hoang, and a wonderful father to Mimi Hoang Schlitz and husband George Schlitz, Linda Hoang Luke and husband Thomas Luke, and William Hoang. He was also a proud grandfather to Sophie, Laina, and Evan Luke.
