Atten-hut! Orders of the Day

To my Friends and fellow Mustangs,
Although I was not able to attend the 1967 Class Reunion last year, I
visit the webpage on occasion, which led me to notice that memorabilia
is sought. While recently cleaning out a closet, I came across this
document that my morn had framed. While unfortunately water damaged,
it's a certificate of the marksmanship program in ROTC. Attached is the
"medal"' that I earned, (Mom was so proud) plus a couple of uniform (?)
patches that you're welcome to have. Interesting to note are the
students and their levels of marksmanship. Fortunately, I never had to
use my ability in Vietnam or the military. In fact, I hated "Rot-cee",
hated it also in college (2 years of Air Force at Auburn, right, Luke
Prescott?) and have ended up working at an Air Force Base as a
I also wonder -
how many high schools today have programs that allow students to shoot
weapons with live ammunition? If my feeble mind remembers, there was a
shooting range in the basement of East and we were popping off .22
rounds, as well as breaking down M-l 's and "drowning them in oil", as
I remember SSgt. Carl E. Parker stating. What an easy assignment that
must have been for him! But I digress....
Maybe you will find these amusing. Best wishes to all my friends....
