My initial Saints
enrollment was in the Drum Line and I then moved to Baritone (1968). I
left the Corps in 1976 and relocated to Virginia in what was the
beginning of a very interesting career. After a tour in our main
headquarters, I moved to England in 1980 where most of my time was spent
traveling throughout Europe. I returned to a position in Virginia in
1983 which provided the opportunity to travel to Europe, Africa, South
West Pacific and South America. I left Virginia in 1988 for Australia
and returned to Virginia in 1991. I had numerous tours within Northern
Virginia which provided the opportunity to visit a number of locations
in the US. In 1998 I left for the Western Pacific where I spent a couple
years and returned to Virginia in December 2000. I had another tour of
service in the Washington, D.C. area and then retired from government
service December 2001. I have since hired on as an Associate with the
consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.
What a great time we had growing from a parade corps to a highly
competitive corps in the DCI! I sure do miss that period of time. It was
great to see so many of the family at the initial reunion in NJ last
year and I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the next reunion!
