How I met Bernadette

I met Bernadette in an unusual way. Back in 1987, on Veteran’s Day, I set off from San Jose to fly to El Paso to take care of some of my deceased parent’s affairs. Bernadette got on a flight in Oakland and headed for El Paso. We both got on the same plane in Phoenix, but it turned out that she had noticed me in the Terminal because my shoes were shined and I had the neat “gig” line that we got in the habit of doing at West Point – shirt edge lined up with edge of belt buckle and fly line. I didn’t notice her in the airport, though. We ended up on the same row with a seat separating us – she was at the window and I in my usual aisle seat. Later when the Flight Attendant was taking orders for beverages and passing out the peanuts, I heard her order. I then asked what accent she had and, naturally, it turned out to be a tad Irish. She was an attractive redhead so I struck up a conversation – in keeping with West Point traditions and those of E-1. I found that she had immigrated as a young girl and was in New York City for some years. She happened to mention that she had worked for an advertising agency, J. Walter Thompson, and had a very nice boss there. He was a West Pointer! Just as part of the conversation, I asked his name. It was Walter Landers! Class of 1955! So that was a real talking point and we got along famously. I asked her to lunch at the El Paso airport – she had to rent a car and drive to Las Cruces to visit an ailing friend who used to be well placed at NBC in New York. After lunch, I suggested that I escort her to a short cut to Las Cruces – The Trans-Mountain Highway which avoided the drive through El Paso the long way around the foot of the Franklin Mountains. I got her on the way to Las Cruces with a tentative date set up on her return to El Paso for her flight. Not wanting to wait for those days to pass, I drove up to Las Cruces one evening to take her to dinner and dancing. When she came back to El Paso, it was another dinner and dancing night at the Marriott near the airport.

After our return to the Bay Area, I used to drive up to Walnut Creek to see her on a Saturday. We’d walk her dog in a park and go to lunch. That went on for quite a while and the rest is history. I used to go up to Walnut Creek a lot in 1988 and 89. I was detailed from NASA to the Marines and Navy on the MV-22 Program in January, 1990, so off I went to Lexington Park, MD (Patuxent River – the Naval Air Test Center) for the better part of six years. I only saw her on the average about every 6 weeks, but we decided to get married in June, 1993. The marriage was at the Chapel of the Presidio of San Francisco presided over by the Honorable Robert M. Hinrichs – Judge of the Superior Court, Monterey County.

So, Classmates. There you have it – a chance meeting on an airplane somewhere over Arizona/New Mexico and now, as second time arounders, we are about to celebrate 18 years of marriage and an acquaintance of 23 1/2 years.

West Point in the 1950's

It's different these days from what it was back in the fifties. In those "olden times," we remained in the same Company for all four years unless you moved to Brigade, Regimental, or Battalion staff positions First Class year. You really got to know your company mates well and those within your Regiment, but not a lot of interaction between the two regiments except on Summer trips and details, sports, and such.

We were all sized in each company from Runts to Flankers. It made for really precision marching in parades see attached NYC parade. We came down from Buckner and marched as a Class in the American Legion parade. There was more emphasis in drill and parades in those days. I have been to West Point many times since graduation and I must say that I'm disappointed in the performance of the Corps on the parade ground. It's to be expected, I guess, with all of the different sizes, strides, and such. They stopped the sizing because, some say, to rid the Corps of the Flanker and Runt complexes runts were feisty and combative while flankers developed a superiority complex from their lofty heights. I don't buy that. I suspect it was really in preparation for the introduction of female Cadets and they didn't want too many of the shorter females lumped in the runt companies. On the parade ground, all was symmetrical the Flankers on each end of the Corps, sloping down through the normal sized Cadets to the Runts in the middle.

When you entered as a New Cadet in July, you didn't get any leave until after Graduation Week the following June 11 months straight. And, until you were a Cow, no weekends away then you got two (2). Of course, there were sports teams away weekends, and activity clubs had trips. As a First Classman, you got 12 weekends as I recall. Weekends, of course, were after parade and inspection on Saturdays and ended at 6:00 PM on Sundays a little more than 24 hours.

All First Classmen were Sergeants and carried a rifle unless they were a Staff member (Battalion or Regimental), Company Commander, Platoon Leader, First Sergeant, or Supply Sergeant. Then you wore a plume and carried a saber . There were also Cow Corporals who carried the company guidons on parade. We marched in Company Mass until they filmed "The Long Gray Line" there in 1954 starring Tyrone Power, Maureen O'Hara. Some had to learn the Squad/Platoon drill for the movie and our Supe liked it so much that he decided that the Corps would revert to the old style which we did.

Academically, there were not many electives as you have today. We got to opt for a particular language (no guarantee that you would get it). There were some advanced math classes available as I recall. It was always tough, though (as today) balancing classes, drill, sports, study time, leisure?. Tattoo was at 10:30 PM with Taps and lights out at 11:00 PM unless you had special permission for later study. We all had a card on the old fireplace mantels in Central Area which we marked for our absences from the room a thread and sliding marker for various categories of absences.

Let's see, in round numbers we entered as a Class of about 670 and graduated 470 about a 30% attrition.
