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.

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.
