My Fellow Banshees,I served with you in Vietnam 1969, B Troop 2/17th Cavalry. On May 15, 2014, I graduated from Rider University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts and a minor in history. In addition, Rider University selected me to deliver the “Commencement Address.” I became the first African-American and Vietnam Veteran to receive this distinct honor.
Here is a link to the 2014 Rider University Commencement Address that I delivered on May 15.
In addition, I was honored on October 18th at Mercer County Communication College, where I received the Alumni Leadership Award and my Associate in Science Degree / Architectural.
I am in graduate school at Rider University, pursing a master's in Clinical Mental Health and I am currently writing my life story, beginning in South Carolina to completing my college education.
For my brothers who may or may not remember me, I have attached a picture of self with the First Lady of New Jersey.
