Changing Times

An indication of just how times have changed since I went through Officer Candidate School in 1976 is the following “Alma Mater” sung (for the last time) by my last all male OCS class:


Far across the Chattahoochee

To the Upatoi

Stands our loyal Alma Mater

Benning School for Boys


Onward ever

Backwards never

Valiantly we strive

To the ports of embarkation

Follow Me with Pride!
