McCullough is a 1958 graduate of West Point.

On Monday, NewsChannel 11 spoke with McCullough's widow.

"For Don, this is a great honor. This was his school," said Margaret Mary McCullough. "This was the most distinguished thing or part of his life."

The couple was married at West Point. Next year would have been their 50th wedding anniversary.

Don McCullough was stabbed to death in his Southwest Lubbock home on July 9. Alonzo Lewis is charged with capital murder in the case.
