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. Wycall chose Gary Sinise Foundation to receive the donation made by NFM Salute on his behalf.
