Mr. Ellege

My name is Tommy Westmoreland and I grew up in Mabank, Texas. I can remember being in the Mabank School Auditorium in 1964 when we were called into an assembly and addressed by Captain Ellege. His mother was later to be a teacher I met in High School. I remember that he was a Green Beret. I was not familiar with Viet Nam. He had brought a Viet Cong Flag to show us.
I admit that I paid little attention to what he said. I wish I had listened with much attentiveness. I remember that I like the way his uniform fit. He was a good looking guy and new his business. I can remember his mother, Mrs. Ellege, how proud she was that he was there giving us a talk. I did not know Mr. Ellege personally but I do know that he made an impact with the other students. I am betting that my friend "Pete" Hamilton was in the audience that day. Maybe that was the day that he began thinking about the War.
