    MOPS meeting

  • All the talk of a contested Republican convention reminds me of my experiences at the fringe of the 1976 primary campaign. In that year, I was Chairman of the Louisville Armed Forces Committee, whose primary mission was to organize Louisville’s Annual Armed Forces Banquet, scheduled that year for May 14. As this was to be the Committee’s Fiftieth Banquet, the first having been addressed by Gen. Pershing in 1919, I thought seeking President Gerald Ford to be our guest of honor would be appropriate.
