Ft Hood Skydivers in 1970's
I was going through some old logbooks from Ft Hood Parachute Club from the mid-70's, and can't read a lot of signatures. Does anyone who did Army sport skydiving during the period have one of General John Singlaub that I could compare to?
How many from Ft Hood then are still in the sport? If anyone jumped there then, or knows someone you think may have, please give them my email address, or send theirs to me please.

Sorry, no record of having jumped with Singlaub, in fact may have been too early - 1965. Made a lot of jumps with Gene Ritchie D-256. Was interested to see his name, tho' it took me a couple of minutes to realize that when he signed the log book, he used "Wm."

I jumped with him once but never got him to sign my book. Actually I don't think it even occurred to me to even try. Interestingly, no one could do a stand up landing that day. It wasn't "military" (needed to do a PLF), so the general didn't approve. I forgot and stood up my 7TU. Then immediately fell down.
