Busted By "The Maj"

Well remembered by me in 1954-1958. 

I was an officer in Company F (Wright Hall). Being somewhat away from the main barracks we cadet officers would sometimes stay up after taps, call in an order from the Villa Pinessi  and chow down on delicious meatball sandwiches while watching forbidden TV.

Never had any problems because I think we were considered first class care takers for the 7th and 8th graders billeted there. We were 16, 17, 18 year olds taking care of 12-13 year olds...... So we took advantage....

One night "Major" Dobias walked in on us. We were trapped and could think of nothing else but to offer him one of our sandwiches.

He was downright cheerful about it. Ate the sandwich, talked to us for a while and left.....Big, Big relief!

Next morning we found that we all had been "soaked" (placed on report) for the gross violation of rules we committed.

Nobody got busted, but we heard about it all right....what was worse was that "Wright Hall" had its own "commandant" who was out that night and did not appreciate us going behind his back much less having another officer nail we suffered....temporarily.

In a few weeks or less, we were ordering sandwiches again and watching TV.....I guess nowadays educators would be glad to have "problem' children like we were.

Best Wishes, prayers and good thoughts from:
