When I was a Freshman in college at the University of Oklahoma……a long time ago (yes, the fall of 1967 was a long time ago), two girls in uniforms came into my dorm meeting.  They told us about an ROTC related girl’s drill team organization called Coed Affiliates Pershing Rifles (CAPERS for short). They also mentioned that the National Headquarters of the organization was at the University of Oklahoma.

Instantly I thought: “WOW!  This is for me……my brother was in Pershing Rifles.  If I work hard, I might even get a chance at being on National Staff and maybe even run the organization.”

 Well, that is how it all began.

What I didn’t know was that the National Organization had only been official since the November of 1966 (less than a year).  I also didn’t know that there had been some problems after we became CAPERS and there was no local company and only 5 people on National Staff.

I ended up being the only member at the first National Headquarters to stay in for 4 full years and had an interesting, yet outstanding year as National Commander.  Then I went off to be an Army wife and building my adult life.  But CAPERS and Pershing Rifles never left my heart.  But I never thought that in 2010, I’d be back at a convention starting my adult volunteer work helping the Pershing Family of Organizations.
