About Our School

Background Information: Dexter is a member of the DoDEA Southeast School District and is located on Main Post at Fort Moore, Georgia. Dexter serves children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade.

Our school was named in honor of Major Herbert J. Dexter, a Vietnam War Hero. He was a member of the Screaming Eagles 101st Airborne. Major Dexter lost his life in the battle of An Ninh during the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross posthumously. Our mascot, Herbie the eagle, and our school colors of red, white, and blue, appropriately represent the courage and bravery of our namesake, Major Dexter.

"Don't Pull Back, Don't Pull Back" - Major Herbert J. Dexter and the Vietnam War.

A Note from The Virtual Wall - On 18 September 1965 the recently arrived 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division launched Operation GIBRALTAR, an air assault aimed at VC and North Vietnamese units headquartered at An Ninh, a tiny village located about 28 kilometers east-northeast of the Brigade's base at An Khe. Major Dexter, the Battalion Operations Officer, was one of the men killed in the assault; a summary of the action and a list of the US servicemen who died as a result of it can be found on The Virtual Wall's " Battle of An Ninh" page.
