Importance of Vermont


First skiing experience

"About 10-12 years old. I lived in Gilman, VT. We skied as   a family before cable bindings. There was a Gilman Ski Club called   'Penguins'. They made at least one trip as a group into Tuckerman's Ravine.   We used to ski with my uncle's family who lived in Littleton, NH, 1934-36   approximately."



Competitive Skiing


What was your experience in the 10th like?

"I was 60 mm mortar Sgt. I joined Mar. 1943 and stayed to   the break up." "Being a member of the 10th Mt. was a great   experience but I sure would not want to repeat same. I'm very proud that I   joined 10th."

Why did you join the 10th?

"I enjoyed skiing - my mother influenced me and one other   older fellow, Maurice Finn, had already joined."
