After 30 years of service, Kizirian retired from the military as a colonel in 1975, but returned to duty again to serve as the U.S. Defense Representative in Indonesia from 1980 to 1984. Believed to be one of the most decorated Armenian-Americans ever to serve, Kizirian earned the Distinguished Service Cross, Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Silver Star, Legion of Merit (4 awards), Distinguished Flying Cross, Soldier's Medal, Bronze Star with V Device (6 awards), the Purple Heart (3 awards), and the Air Medal (14 awards).

According to his obituary, "The warning very likely saved thousands of American and South Vietnamese lives. Like his work in uncovering the Tet Offensive, most of his accomplishments and successes took place behind the scenes."Lincoln P. Cole

The Boston Red Sox are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Boston, Massachusetts. They play in the American League East division. Since the institution of MLB's Rule 4 Draft, the Red Sox have selected 70 players in the first round. Officially known as the "First-Year Player Draft", the Rule 4 Draft is MLB's primary mechanism for assigning amateur baseball players from high schools, colleges, and other amateur baseball clubs to its teams. The draft order is determined based on the previous season's standings, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick. In addition, teams which lost free agents in the previous off-season may be awarded compensatory or supplementary picks.Of the 70 players picked in the first round by the Sox, 31 have been pitchers, the most of any position; 20 of these were right-handed, while 11 were left-handed. 19 of the players picked in the initial round were outfielders, while nine shortstops, four first basemen, four catchers, and two second basemen were selected. The team also selected one player at third base. Ten of the players came from high schools or universities in the state of California, while Texas and South Carolina follow with seven and six players, respectively. The Red Sox have also drafted two players from outside the United States: Chris Reitsma (1996) from Canada and Reymond Fuentes (2009) from Puerto Rico.Two of their first-round picks have won championships with the franchise. Outfielder Trot Nixon (1993) was on the 2004 championship team and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury (2005) played with the 2007 championship team. Nomar Garciaparra (1994) won the Rookie of the Year Award with the Red Sox in 1997. Jim Rice (drafted in 1971), Roger Clemens (drafted in 1983), and Mo Vaughn (drafted in 1989) have each won a Most Valuable Player Award with the team. Clemens also won three Cy Young Awards with the Red Sox and another four with other teams for a total of seven, more than any other pitcher in MLB history. Clay Buchholz (2005) threw a no-hitter, the 17th in Red Sox franchise history, in his second major league start, tying him with Wilson Álvarez for the second-fastest no-hitter by an MLB pitcher. Jim Rice is the only first-round pick of the Red Sox in the Baseball Hall of Fame, inducted in 2009.The Red Sox have made 20 selections in the supplemental round of the draft. They have never made the first overall selection in the draft. They have had 30 compensatory picks since the institution of the First-Year Player Draft in 1965. These additional picks are provided when a team loses a particularly valuable free agent in the prior off-season, or, more recently, if a team fails to sign a draft pick from the previous year. The Red Sox have failed to sign two first-round picks across their draft history. First, Jimmy Hack (1970) did not sign but they received no compensation pick. The Red Sox also did not sign Greg McMurtry (1986) and were given the 32nd pick of the 1987 draft in compensation which they used to draft Bob Zupcic.List of high schools in Massachusetts
