Kemper Military Memories of 1937-39
Dan Garrett(email: firstname.lastname@example.org) states, "My Dad attended Kemper Military Academy in the late 30's (37-39 I believe). His name was Clyde W. Garrett from Eastland,Texas. He was the son of the U.S. Congressman Clyde L. Garrett.
"My Dad was the fullback on the unbeaten Kemper football squads during these years. I have several photos of him at Kemper, write ups on their games from the Booneville paper, and his football letter.
"He served in WWII flying 29 combat missions in the Army. Please feel free to contact me if I can share copies of the photos, etc. My Dad loved Kemper. He went on to the University of Texas and then to law school after the war, but his days at Kemper were very fond ones."

Comments: My cousin, the late Edward S. May, son of the late Stanley & Louise May of Alva, OK...also attended Kemper Military Academy..somewhere between 1937-1939. He was also a graduate of Alva High School, but I'm not positive about the year...again..somewhere in this time frame. (His sister, the late Jean (May) Garvin told me she thought he attended Kemper about 1939). K. Racette ~K.Racette 2010-01-05 12:22:56
