LTC (Ret) Earle L. Denton was inducted today into the National Center for Simulation (NCS) Modeling and Simulation Hall of Fame at a special ceremony held at Rio Pinar Country Club.  The actual 2015 ceremony is scheduled for 12 May at the Orange County Convention Center but due to Earle's failing health, the NCS Board of Directors decided to hold a special ceremony on Wednesday dedicated only to him.  The purpose of the NCS Hall of Fame is twofold:  to raise the level of awareness of the community of the nearly $5 billion Modeling & Simulation Industry that calls Central Florida home and to recognize pioneers whose passion, dedication and perseverance laid the foundation for what has continued to grow and develop over the past 50+ years. 

LTC (Ret) Denton is a war hero who was awarded a silver star for his heroic actions during the battle for Pork Chop Hill during the Korean Conflict.  He also served his country in Viet Nam.  He retired from active duty after serving with the Army command in the Research Park and was an Industry leader advancing the state-of-the-art of modeling and simulation technology in support of the training of America's men and women in uniform.  He was also a tireless advocate for our veterans and passionate civic leader.  Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs opened the ceremony and recalled a relationship with Earle that goes back more than 20 years.  Over 130 of Earle's colleagues and friends attended the ceremony and also watched as U.S. Army representatives presented him the Order of Saint Maurice medal for having served the Infantry community with distinction.
