The 2003 School of the US Soldier was a success, and I would like to
thank the many people that assisted to make this event happen. This
includes everyone who traveled to the post, those who ran the drills,
and sessions, the cooks, those who gave support even though the could
not attned and the Fort Atkinson staff and volunteers who prepared
the site for us.
We have set up a new Yahoo Group to further evaluate the event and to
make plans for future schools. There is already discusssion being
held about moving this event to Indiana or Ohio for next year, and
possibly Fort Osage the year after that. It is very gratifying to
see the interest in continuing this event.
Anyone interested in joining the discussion is welcome to do so. The
group name is 1812-School-of-the-Soldier.
