Wayne,
Women in dorms in 1966, TAMU?

Maybe during Summer School, yes. During the regular semesters, they A&M opened up Hunter-Liggett (sp)in the Spring of 1973.
I was in B-1 (Vets), 1st Bn, 1st Bde. One of my buddies had the hots for a gal over there. 1st floor, slit vertical windows, curtains. He’d go over and hang out at her West facing window, and get all dreamy.
Our outfit used to play football on that field before those dorms were built My Fish year, we were in Dorm 2, 2nd, and 3rd stoop. Corps Staff in 1. Matt Carroll, Corps Commander. One of my buddies BaB-O Bombed his room.
Carroll was commissioned the same day as me, 5-5-73. One year later he’s creating all those shinanigens about refusing to cut his hair in West Germany. He was an Engineer. I see Juan Gonzalez at Aggie Muster, Rhine Mien AFB, 1974. Juan is in Kitzegen, and I’m in Mainz, Infantry Platoon Ldrs. We’re both in Battalions with a load of West Pointers. The Pointers who are giving us a ration of crap about Matt Carroll. Being Ags , we could take their comments. Every day in the Stars and Stripes, “ I refuse to cut my hair, because women don’t have too.” He’s Court-martialled and out. That’s another story.
I was in summer school 1971 and women were in the new dorms across from us 16, 17, by Henderson Hall. Making up for foolishness during Fall of 1969.

1966?? News to me. Women were allowed open enrolment Fall 1969.

Our 1st Battalion Class ‘73 reunion a weekend every Fall. We’ve dined at the Rudder Tower ( pretty good eats), Slocum Nutrition Center, and this Fall, good old Duncan. Food is about the same. Cafeteria Style, no family, in any of them. 7 of us just walked up and paid. Nobody whipped out. That looked at us like we were Baboons. We’re all glad we went. Wives and all. No kids, they’re all grown up now.

I like your comments about A&M. Keeps the Sips in line.

Gig em.

Russ,
I waited until things calmed down a bit. The death of a Parent is hard to withstand. Both of mine have been gone since 2003. My Dad and I were extremely close. I lived in Dallas and he lived in San Antonio. My best friend and I would fly down and play golf with him and fly back afterwards. They’re both gone now.
My condolences to you and your family.
On a lighter note, my baby daughter y’all would keep on Lemmon Ave is 35, almost 36. About my age you came back into my life then. She’s well, and said Hello.
Take care Pal, and Lean Forward in the Saddle. T

Terry Granade has a birthday today.

Ha Bill. How are you. It's a shame about Gary. He was a great guy.
I have not thought about the "Smokers Hill" in a long time. We were real bad guys for going there. Weren't you into Kool cig smoking? I was a Marlboro man. I quit in 1971. Wine, Women, Cigs. Cigs went to .45 a pack and that was it. Now look at those damned things. Gary smoked for 52 years. We both started at 16. I'm not sure that RHS would allow some of the shenanigans we pulled back then. All was forgiven in the Boiler Room with Mr Jerry Miller. I'm down in Bandera County, Texas. TMI is just down the road a piece.
Every time I saw Gary, we always talked about Bill Light.
Keep cool.
Terry

Gary is one of my Truly Great Friends. I've known Gary since we both attended Belt Line Jr High in the 8th grade, in the RHS building  Gary grew up across the street from Dover Elementary School on Colfax Circle. I lived on Spring Valley and met him walking home from school. "We used to do that in those days."  Gary played on the Richardson City football teams until after school work got in the way  After graduation Gary married Sharon, from RHS 1968, and joined the US Army  Serving as a medic at Ft Riley, Kansas, moving back to Richardson after his tour of duty.  Amy, their 1st daughter, and My God Daughter arrived, so they purchased their home in the area North of Arapaho and Waterview  I would always stop in and see them both when back in Dallas  Gary was extremely proud of his three daughters, but more so when his Grandchildren started arriving. His great enjoyment was taking the Grandchildren on summer vacation trips. Their last was tubing down the Frio River in the Texas Hill Country. Knowing the best place to eat was his specialty, and particularly  Texas BarBQ.  He had been sick for almost 1 year. He quietly went to sleep on July 20, 2017.  I will dearly miss my friend of 52 years  God Bless Gary Kieth Sumner. RHS '69er.
