Bernard, Thank you for your kind words. It sounds like you progressed through the Army and then onto your career with the department of State. Congrats!
I used the educational bill to attend The Ohio State University after leaving the Army. After graduation I got hired by the Department of The Interior, U.S. Geological Survey. I retired from the USGS in May, 2014. Total government service including military was 37 years.
I am married and living in Columbus, Ohio.
I will not be attending the Dragoon reunion this year, but thanks for the reminder!
I'll have to dig up my Troop photo and look at your face. thanks for the complement! i did become a Police officer, Retired in 2009 as a Sergeant. I sure do kick myself in the ass for getting out of the Army, I loved it. I'm hoping to get to pa. i live close enough that I can commute.
Was surprised when the computer flagged your message up! I haven't been on this site in a few years ( to my shame)
Only guy I have been in contact with from the old days was Mike Price from Michigan. I'll have to make it here more often, to keep in touch.
Bernard, it was great seeing you today after all these years brother! Hope to see you again soon and we will talk again in the next few weeks for sure. Got to hit the rack here. After the banquet a few of us hit the bar and we closed it again tonight. Damn, two nights in a row. I'm too fn old for this shit.
