Another Christmas
I'm really sorry to hear our history was wiped out from Hurricane Katrina. I really enjoyed that year and set me on a career in the Air Force. If you were there in 1966/1967 I was the one with the Red Triumph Spitfire, English Sports Car. I still have my rope and Blue Scarf/Bib. Best to all of you. I am retired and playing the trumpet in five different groups. If you don't play anymore drag that horn out and find a Horizon Band or other group of oldies and start playing, it's good for you and a lot of fun.

I was in the snare line with Charlie Shoaf and I think, Ed Jenkins. I had a wonderful time competing with Charlie playing the snare solos as we paraded through troop change. Loved the beach and hung out at a motel in gulfport with another Corp member. Gor reacquainted with Matty Matthews, the tenor drum leader, when we both worked for IBM. I auditioned to get in the corp in front of Matty Matthews and Jerry William's. I roomed with Harvey, the contrabass player from Yakima Washington.

What You Want For Christmas

What I want for Christmas is to see my grandchildren's happy faces when they see their presents.
After being in Mississippi, I served in Korea, Guam, and Hawaii. I ended up in McGuire AFB, there I was asked if I wanted to get out of the Air Force, being in my twenties, and not having an older person to ask for advice. I got out of the Air Force, only if I could do it all again. I was proud to be an Airman. I do have two daughters whom just graduated from Lackland AFB, TX and serving in the military. Praise the Lord.

Horns (french)
I Spent close to a year in the Corps but was not active for the last 2 months due to injuring my lips in a traffic accident (Sep 61). One of the best memories was performing in the Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans with the Corps taking first place, beating out the Army & Navy bands. We spent quite a bit of time that evening in Al Hirt's night club. One of our horn players was a good friend of Al's and he showed us a good time.

I marched 84-85 under Ssgt Odom. Played snare. I came in with DCI background and we worked hard. The drum line was tight. I had loads of fun from secret new member initiation to marching from bourbon street to the superdom in Mardi Gras. Tech school was year long for me, marching with the Ble Knightswas a real honor. I'd very much like to see them again.

Never a member, but my two best friends and classmates in Airborne Radio Operator course in 1958 were members; Bent Rasmussen and Scotty Stephens. I auditioned but didn't make it. I did enjoy watching the Keesler D&B Corps in action though. Thanks for the great website.

I was in ATC school so I wasn’t in as long as some other career fields. I remember the blessing of the shrimp boat fleet and the grand opening of a new VFW post and a new shopping mall opening ceremony.
