I was a member of the Oklahoma National Guard ( 45th. Division ) joined in High School just for something to do in a small boring little town. After High School they sent six of us to Ft. Hood, Texas for Basic and AIT training ( 2nd. Armored Division). After coming back home and making two summer camps with them I got the itch to travel and join the regular army.
They sent me to Germany ( 2nd. AC ) spent three years in B-troop ( re-enlisted ) and returned to Ft. Hood as a D.I. in the 1st. Armored Division. A job I was not suited for, on to Ft.Sill shooting mortars for OCS School.
The Army and I had grew tired of each other and I could hear my Cherokee girlfriend and the Cookson Hills of Eastern Oklahoma calling. So in Feb.1968 the Army and I call it quits.
Bill Barry is a member here too, but haven't heard from him in awhile. He went on to be 1st Squadron commander 1986-88.
Jesse Atkins III is also a member, but haven't heard from him in several years. There might be more from your watch list also. Make yourself at home. If you have any questions, give me a holler. I'll be at the Dragoon Saloon in the Oldtimers group.
