OCS 50th reunion

Before returning to the trail, I had the opportunity to attend the 50th reunion of OCS, Officer Candidate School, held at Fort Benning, Georgia. I graduated as an officer in 1967. It was great to see my buddies once again. We went to Battalion Headquarters (Nett Hall), reenacted our swearing in ceremony, rededicated the Memorial Plaque to our Fallen Brothers, saw our old barracks, went to the Mess Hall for lunch, and took the bus to the US Army National Infantry Museum where we witnessed the induction of our Brother Hector Colon into the OCS Hall of Fame. That evening we went to the officers club, The Benning Club, for dinner. The weather was beautiful. I drove down to Columbus, Georgia with my wife to attend this memorable event. The round trip was a total of 1,754 miles. It may sound like a long way to go but I have walked a total 2,290.1 miles so far on the trail. A piece of cake!!

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
