Tarleton Alumni on duty in Italy
Roy and Georgia Salyer
Army Second Lieutenant Roy
Salyer, a 1993 graduate of
Tarleton State University, has

during the 92-93 school year. He
completed the Adjutant General
Corp Officer Basic Course on the
prestigious "Commandant's List"
reserved for only the most
Lieutenant Salyer and his wife,
Georgia, also a Tarleton alumna
and a native of Granite Shoals,
were assigned to the 510th
Personnel Services Center. He is
responsible for the outprocessing
of all Army soldiers from; Vicenza
and his daily duties include the
supervision of five, enlisted
soldiers; three sergeants and two
specialists. His extra duties
include Motor Officer, Tax

The assignment for the young
Salyers is a homecoming in many
ways for the entire Salyer family.
Roy's father was stationed in
Vicenza during the early 1960's
and was befriended by an Italian
family. Over the past 30 years
they have kept in touch but never
dreamed that they would see each
other again. Carrying on a
tradition, Roy has become good
friends with the Italian family's
children, Roberto and Merazi, who
have gone out of their way to
welcome the Salyers to the
"I'm in the cultural center of
the world," said Salyer recently in
a letter to his friends and cadre in
Tarleton's Military Science
Department. "Italy is so much
more vast and extensive in its
culture and history than what I
was ever taught. Thanks to the
Army, I am getting the best of it
all- a great place to start a career
and a personal opportunity that
would never have afforded itself
any other way."
Salyer said his experiences and
training as a manager have made
iiim feel more certain that a career
in the Army will be his goal.
Major William Brown,
chairman of the University's
Military Science Department, said
that as with all soldiers stationed
overseas, Roy and Georgia are
anxious to hear from home. He
encourages friends and former
• classmates of the two to write the
couple. Their address is available
by contacting the Military Science
Department at 968-9188.
