BA History & Government majors, FSU, 1969. Studied European intellectual history for multiple years but received MA, US History major, FSU, 1978. Drafted for 17 months 2 days active military duty including 8 months, all as an infantry sergeant in Vietnam... 5 months with C Troop, 3d Squadron 5th US Cavalry, 9th Infantry Division under operational control of the 1/5 Infantry Division (Mechanized) and the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile), and 3 months with D Company 1/502d Infantry (Airmobile), 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile) all in Northern I Corps, mostly along the DMZ or around Hue.

NOTE: The 5th Cavalry Regiment was redesignated from the 2d Cavalry Regiment in 1861 when the 2d Dragoons was redesignated as Cavalry. As the senior unit the 2d Dragoons then became the 2d Cavalry Regiment, but the 5th Cavalry is fully entitled to the lineage and honors of the 2d Cavalry Regiment prior to that time. The original 2d Cavalry was known as "Jeff Davis's Own". Organized in 1855, it was commanded its first two years by Col. Albert Sidney Johnston and thereafter until his resignation in 1861, by Lt. Col. Robert Edward Lee. Lee was home on leave from this command when he assumed command of the U.S. Marines who retook the U.S. Harper's Ferry Arsenal from insurrectionists led by John Brown.
