RICA Ranger Roundup St Louis AAR

Couple of pics from the event. The 1st is me with Col Robert Black and the 2nd is me wish Major General Singlaub.

Well I made if home from St Louis. Some random thoughts and observations.

Never before have I seen so many black berets worn so many different ways.....with Members Only jackets.

If you get enough 70+ year old Rangers together suddenly they are 50 years younger.

After the dinner on Thursday night when I sat with the 2 men from 2nd Ranger Company I went back to the room and could not sleep. I cracked open my copy of Rangers in Korea somewhere in the next few hours I ran across the list of Silver Star recipients and the name Posey, Edward L. I did a google search when I got home turning up the Ranger Hall of Fame link. I was honored to buy him a drink Saturday night and even more honored for the wisdom he imparted on me on that Thurday.

RICA-KW has started a new organization whose title I think was finally decided to be Descendants and Friends of Korean War Rangers. Anyone interested shoot me a message.

The next reunion is scheduled for 2007 at Ft Benning, GA during the time of the Best Ranger Competition.
