Old Army Days Photos

mimirror77bgI was digging though some old slide trays from my military days and stumbled upon some photos taken while I was in the Army stationed at Ft. Bragg. I got a kick out of them so I posted them in my Photo Archive link. Just have to click on the thumbnails to enlarge them.

Being a military photographer was a really special time of my life. An experience I’ll never forget. I learned so much in the military and actually got to do what I love. Make photographs and write articles. I also met some great friends like my buddy Gerry Hoyum who I hope to somehow get up to visit in Northern Minnesota. This post if for you Gerry Hoyum my good old Army Photog buddy.mehoyum78bg

    Good morning PJK, I teach in the high school and the powers that be let me teach an elective on photography. I still use some of the skills I learned working with you, thanks for sharing your knowledge with an old “brush ape” like me. Gerry

    Hey Patrick – your photos bring back some of my memories about being in the military (USAF 73-77). I couldn’t have gone to college I’m sure if it wasn’t for being a vet. I like to tell my students that I didn’t have a GPA in high school because I was a beach bum and hardly attended. (There’s a lesson in there somewhere).

    We were in the military around the same time Gary. I was in from 74-78 active and then National Guard until 1982. There is no way I could have gone to Graduate School without the GI Bill. I was also a lousy HS student but I got motivated when I got to college and got into art and photography. Btw…Karen tracked down Wiley and he lives in WVa – has a construction business and also has a place on the Outer Banks. We are all invited to spend a weekend at his beach house last weekend in September. Would you and your wife be up for that? A little reunion of sorts.
