Wycall served in the Navy from 1965 to 1968, and spent some 20 months offshore during the Vietnam War supporting operations in the Gulf of Tonkin. As a Gunnery Officer, his offshore ship supported shore bombardment, served as a plane guard for aircraft carriers, and as a search and rescue station for downed pilots and servicemen. Wycall worked his way from Ensign to Lieutenant during his 3 and a half years of service and won a Silver Star for writing the operational orders for the Search and Rescue Station located at the 18th Parallel outside of Hanoi.

NFM Salutes is an initiative in which one military member or Veteran is chosen each month to be honored as the “Salute of the Month.” Salutes are chosen from nominations on the NFM Salute website, www.nfmsalute.com. The “Salute of the Month” will be featured on the website with a brief biography and information about his or her service, and NFM Lending will make a $2,500 donation to a military or Veteran non-profit in the Salute’s name. Wycall chose the Gary Sinise Foundation to receive this month’s donation.
Selected NFM Salutes may choose from one of the following four non-profits: Platoon 22, AnySoldier, Soldier’s Wish, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. NFM looks forward to the opportunity to continue to honor military and Veterans through the NFM Salute initiative.
