    I was last at Fort Riley as an ROTC Cadet for summer camp in....lessee.....19....78? Yup. There was a running joke going that Riley was the place where General Custer launched his attack against the Little Big Horn from and legend had it that when he rode out the gates...he shouted: DON'T TOUCH A THING TILL I RETURN!!! Of course he never did return and the powers that be never DID touch anything which is why in '78 the place seemed like a dump. Well the areas where they housed summer camp cadets were....and Lawrence, Kansas....isn't that the little army town right outside the gates? Or was that Junction City? Can't remember. Anyway, what a den of iniquity! But you know...I remember nights on the plains as being very beautiful and peaceful.

    Actually, General Custer "launched" his attack on the Little Big Horn from Fort Abraham Lincoln, Dakota Territory.

    There is a Custer/Fort Riley connection, however. The 7th Cavalry Regiment (Custer was Lt. Col., second in command) was headquartered at Fort Riley during the campaigns against the Southern Plains tribes, 1867 to 1869. Custer served part of his court-martial suspension in 1868 at Fort Riley as a guest in General Phil Sheridan's quarters.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I Missed This One?...

    Served in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve from 1976 - 1981. I was the Training Officer for a SAR unit in Northern Michigan...

    It certainly was a small part in a much bigger picture, but I did faithfully serve my country!

    Stay alert...stay safe!

    US Navy from Sept. 10, 1986 to Dec 15, 1993.

    I was a Firecontrol Tech. 1st class on discharge.

    Desert Shield / Desert Storm Vet. I was in the Persian Gulf from Jan 5th 1991 until Sept. 1991.
    Saw combat. We got shot at much more than I would have expected from the Iraqi solders who were dropped off on the oil and gas rigs in out in the Gulf before their "Navy" ceased to exist.

    Ships I was stationed on during my time in the Navy:
    USS Wisconsin BB-64 (Plankowner)
    USS R. K. Turner CG-20 (The ship I was on during the Gulf War)

    I was injured in a shipboard accident on the Turner off the coast of GITMO in Feb. 1992. I destroyed my knees and had to have them reconstructed. After which, I was medically discharged in Dec. 1993.

    Too bad too, I could have retired this last September had I been able to stay in, and I was planning on going the whole 20 years. I loved the Navy. I still miss it.

    USAF from 1978 to 1986. Hospital troop (shot x-rays and assisted oral surgery), youngest Launch Facility Manager in SAC, 320 SMS. One job I don't talk about. Don't really miss it but if all the commanders had been of the caliber of my first commander, Col. Meade, they'd of had to push me out the front gate screaming and locked it behind me at 20 years!
