   Their daughter Leslie recalls "Dad used to wake the three of us up for school by rapping on our doors and performing morning "Reveille".
    Whoever jumped out of bed first got the bathroom first!  He did that for years. 
   He also taught me how to do military corners when I made my bed as a kid. Still doing military corners today and have passed it on."
