DOWN SOUTH IN ALABAMA....
IP: 72.222.137.3


ON THIS DAY

On Sept. 15, 1963, four black girls were killed when a bomb went off during Sunday services at a Baptist church in Birmingham, Alabama, in the deadliest act of the civil rights era.

January, 1964 I received orders to the
Army Chemical Warfare School at Fort McClellan, Alabama...Mere short weeks following the murder of President Kennedy over in Texas... Times were so
tough and brutal in the South that even we as senior military personnel were
encouraged (ordered) to stay out of the towns. My first on-the-road training assignment from Port Hueneme was to the
Dallas/Fort Worth area and further into
the gulf area states...Things needed getting used to! JW
