- I was at Ft. Leonardwood in May 1953 for my basic training and wheel mechanic school. Once, coming back from the field, a soldier's rifle went off as he was entering the barracks. I don't know if the bullet went through the roof of the entrance overhang or not but that was where it was pointed.

I miss Pick Elementary
- I went to Pick Elementary when we were stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. I attended at least 3-6 grade there that I can remember. I had great teachers such as Mrs. Bibbs, Mr. Hatley and last but not least Mr. Pesante. I hated to leave that school. It upset me greatly when we had to move due to dad retiring. My dad was E8 Master Sgt. Jasper Thelbert Phillips. We lived at 9 Knight Street in Fort Leonard Wood.
