Ice Bucket Challenge
Aug. 27, 2014 — Sgt. Maj. John Neel becomes one of several VMI community members to answer the ice bucket challenge. The challenge, which supports ALS — amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — research, requires a donation within 24 hours of the dousing. Neel offered the challenge to his old friends from the 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment: Henry Behr, Mike McQuillen, Mike Underhill, Kendall Nash, and George Nieves. Neel also challenged Afton Bricker ’14 and Ashley Hill ’14. – VMI Video by Stephen Hanes and John Robertson IV.
