Retired U.S. Army Col. Gary "Mickey" Riggs, Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Rick Loomis and musician David "Doc" Livingston entered the Western Kentucky University Hall of Distinguished Alumni on Friday.

Riggs, 83, who resurrected a declining ROTC program at WKU and who also worked with Jimmy Feix to help save the football program in the 1990s, said he was just doing his job, sandwiching his WKU duties with a 27-year career in the U.S. Special Forces that took him around the world.
