Maj Al Rupp
We dedicate this episode of Timelines to Maj Al Rupp, USMA 1955. As a West Point Rabble Rouser in his Second Class Year, he participated in capturing of the Navy goat, bringing it to West Point and parading the goat through Washington Hall the Sunday evening before the Army/Navy game. “It took an order from President Eisenhower to get West Point to return the goat before the game. As an officer in the US Air Force, he was selected in 1963 for the military astronaut program. In 1965 he was killed when his F-102 exploded.

Congressman John Shimkus Timelines Interview with Bill Conrad
It is always a pleasure to interview people on Timelines but when it is my classmate it’s just plain fun. John’s and my paths have crossed many times since that first day we both raised our right hand July 7, 1976, and swore our oath of allegiance and entered the profession of arms. After graduating from West Point May 28, 1980, we both headed to Fort Benning to attend Infantry Officers Basic Course and winter Ranger School (white thread). In 1996 our paths would pass again as we both won our primaries to run for Congress. John would go on to win the general election in Illinois and I would lose in California.
Today, John is still in Congress and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment and Economy. His committee is addressing concerns regarding the management of the nation’s growing stockpile of nuclear waste.
As the Yucca Mountain Repository which is in Nevada continues to go through the licensing process, we expect to see a lot more of John out in our state.
