Personal Memories

Best Friends
Dick DeRozier from Wisconsin

Best Moment
Graduated #1 (tied) from BCT Class


Worst Moment
Pointed (inadvertantly) a rifle (unloaded) at Platoon Sergeant. Kicked my butt-literally

Clarence Clevenger SFC (My Platoon Sergeant-pretty much a class A prick.

1st LT Wayne J Surline-sharpest Officer I ever met in the Army (Company Commander)


Other Memories
KP on graduation day from BCT. Snuck out of messhall, got in back of line. 1SG called my name (thought I had been caught). He put me at front of line, said well done and told me I was to be first on the bus. Guess cause I graduated #1. LOL!
