For Pershing Rifles, Company C-7 Alumni
My brother, Roger Grissette, was a member of C-7 from 1960 to 1962. He was an officer in 1961-62 and was even asked to join regimental staff, be decided not to take the Advanced Course. When he got married, I took over his old bedroom which was larger than mine. For years, his old pledge rifle was behind the bedroom door. When I went to college in 1967 and heard about CAPERS, I was hooked quickly! My 91 year old mother said it was still in a closet at the house, so I told her to ask Roger to take a picture of it so I can post it here as Pershing Rifles Memorabilia.

This page was first created to show why I was interested in Pershing Rifles, but then to attract find Steve and Sandy who I was friends with. I've seen a website for C-7 alumni, but it is incomplete and has no way of contacting any one.
