COL James F. (Darby) McNulty is awarded the MG Horatio Gates Honorary Medal at the Adjutant General School Warrant Officer Advanced Course at Fort Jackson, S.C. on May 17, 2016.

As part of the ceremony, McNulty was inducted as an honorary colonel into the Adjutant General Corps Regimental Association by COL Jack Usrey, Commandant General of the Adjutant General (AG) School, Chief of the AG Corps, and President of the National AG Corps Regimental Association (AGCRA). The award was established by the AGCRA to recognize the distinguished achievements and service of individuals who promote the objectives and purposes of the AG Corps and for improvements in the fields of personnel, administration and human resources (HR) management.

MG Horatio Gates was the first Adjutant General of the Army, or chief administrative officer, during the Revolutionary War. The medal that bears his namesake was awarded by U.S. Congressional resolution to commemorate his victories against the British in three key battles that prevented strategic British occupation of the Hudson Valley in N.Y.

McNulty was recognized for his revolutionary work over the past two years on IPPS-A, a revolutionary HR information management system that will modernize all Army HR components into one first-of-its-kind electronic system.
