George Remembers . . . The night or two before the graduation of our upper class (61C), one of their more illustrious members got “ three sheets to the wind, ” and roared his car down the parade field and past the reviewing stand. At the graduation ceremony as he was presenting the diploma, Colonel Long, the School Commandant, made the remark that commissioning this individual was maybe the biggest mistake he ’ d made in his entire career. AND, the time one of our own classmates in 1 st squadron fell asleep while standing at attention during afternoon drill practice. No-Doz, anyone??
