From the May 2017 Camp 1524 Dispatch:
On Thursday, May 11th Prattmont Baptist Church will be the location for this month’s meeting of the Prattville Dragoons. We have a special guest speaker, Major General John Scales U.S. Army, retired, and his topic will be on the impact of General Nathan Bedford Forrest. This distinguished career officer is an outstanding speaker who has also authored several books.
A meal will be served beginning at 6:00 PM with the program to follow. First Lt. Commander Harold Grooms will be hosting the meal which will consist of bar-b-que, camp stew and various dishes provided by some camp members. 1Lt. Commander Grooms requests persons and/or camps planning to attend RSVP to Harold NLT Friday May 5th. This is for head count purposes for meal planning. Donations to offset the meal expense will be accepted.
General Scales is traveling from north Alabama to present this outstanding program to us and we are encouraging members of other SCV camps, the general public, educators, etc. to attend this special presentation.
