I was stationed at Keesler from December of 1966 until November of 1967.  I was initiated into the corps in February of 1967.  Buddy Colangelo was the drum sargeant at the time.  I took over from him when he graduated from tech school.  Lt. Mc Intosh was our commander and he was a great guy. We marched at troop change daily and did monthly center reviews. We played at the 1967 VFW Nationals drum corps contest as an exhibition corps.  We also did a couple of exhibitions in New Orleans.

It was a great experience and it would be great to have a corps reunion.  I now play in an alumni corps on Long Island in New York.  We are the Golden Lancers, The old Selden Cadets alumni.  We had our 50 year reunion in 2004.
