R. David Moore - Styx - 1973-1974 - Blackfoot, ID
Home Alumni Multimedia Guestbook Keesler AFB
My best memory of the D&B was the camaraderie more than anything else. We became family in those days. We LOVED marching in Mardi Gras parades. That is one of my best remembrances was marching in all the communities on the gulf coast including New Orleans during Mardi Gras season. They would not allow our Drum Major to remove his sword from its holder as there was a ban on “weapons” during the parade which made it very hard to know which song we would be playing next in New Orleans. I have served in law enforcement since 1976 and have been the Chief of Police for the City of Blackfoot since 1996.
