Return to El Cid

Return to El Cid

My husband of 41 years, Greg Weber (on the right), and his buddy Greg Duncan, Charleston, South Carolina, September 1972. They had just returned to The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina, for their junior year. Duncan's uniform (including white gloves) denotes his role as Cadet Regimental Staff Sergeant. I asked my Greg how it was that he had the temerity to sport a summer 'stache while on campus, in uniform, albeit without the addition of his Squad Sergeant rank. He said it was the first day back and he'd already gotten his regulation haircut ("My hair looks all right," he claims), and, obviously, been issued his rifle. My Greg, a basketball player from Toledo, Ohio, was at The Citadel on a full athletic scholarship, while Duncan, from Tavares, Florida, attended on a full academic scholarship. Both members of the Class of '74, they're still friends. The picture was taken by my mother-in-law. View full size.
