[2019] Gary Lee Stamp, US Army Veteran (107-19) 14 Jun 19

The family of Mr. Gary Lee Stamp, a US Army Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard at the graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one.
Dr. Gary L. Stamp January 2, 1944 - May 26, 2019. In 1971, Dr. Stamp joined the United States Air Force, and was assigned to San Vito Air Force base in southern Italy as Chief of Veterinary Services. While in San Vito, he and his family took advantage of the opportunity to explore their host country and parts of Europe and the Middle East, beginning a tradition of traveling as a family that continues to this day. He also developed many cherished life-long friendships. Dr. Stamp served at San Vito until 1974 when he was selected to pursue advanced degree work in small animal internal medicine at Colorado State University (CSU).
In the summer of 1976, Dr. Stamp was appointed Chief of Medicine of the Department of Defense Military Working Dog Center at Lackland Air Force Base, where military dogs were purchased and trained. In 1978 he was assigned to Ramstein, Germany as chief of the Air Force's military dog referral center in Europe. Dr. Stamp transferred to the Army Veterinary Corps in 1983 due to a congressional mandate to move the Veterinary Corp to the US Army. He completed several additional military assignments for the US Army, including returning to Lackland as Director, Military Dog Veterinary Service, where he was responsible for overseeing the medical care of all military dogs in DOD as well as serving as Deputy Commander for Veterinary Services for all military veterinary services for installations in the northeast United States.
While overseeing the Military Dog Veterinary Service Dr. Stamp became committed to establishing a breeding program that would provide an internal source of military working dogs to supplement the needs of the Department of Defense, reducing the reliance on sourcing puppies from breeders and enabling desired qualities of temperament and abilities to be selected. He laid the groundwork for this program and this work was instrumental in the formation of the DoD Working Dog Breeding Program which currently breeds and trains puppies to serve in all branches of the military detecting explosives and contraband, clearing land mines and performing search and rescue missions.
Dr. Stamp was promoted to the rank of Colonel in 1990, and in 1991 he was invited to attend US Army War College as one of only five Army Veterinary Corps officers in the 90-year history to attend in residence.
