Yearbook

Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: APO, AE USA
Spouse/Partner: Rebecca Ann
Occupation: US Army Chaplain
Children: Have 3 step-children, with 6 wonderful grandbabies. Years ago, though, I thought I had one girl of my More…own... during my 2nd Divorce my wife divulged to the Judge she wasn't mine. A Court Ordered DNA Test confirmed her claim. I had no idea... needless to say I was crushed. I loved, and still do love her and her sister as if they were both my own.
Military Service: US Marines and US Army  
Comments:

knew darned few of you, and remember even fewer. As for me, 'All good things come in time... ' I have had a rather rough go of it after several failed marriages. I have no children of my own, but helped raise a few step children. After serving in the Marines, and spending numerous years ranching and working as a Farrier I am now on my second Tour in the Army. The first tour I did just over 7 yrs, finishing as an NCO (non-Commissioned Officer) in DEC 2000. I then decided to persue the Army Chaplaincy program, and am now an Orthodox Priest (Western Rite) where beginning in 2007 I finally became a Chaplain. It is the perfect fit, as it helps me to keep my focus off myself and on those who really deserve it. I am privelaged to serve our young Soldiers and Marines, and have Deployed Kosovo, SWA, and most recently to Afghanistan (OEF) in 2013. Thanks, and God Bless. Chaplain (CPT) Troy L Allison+

School Story:

I only attended Sheridan High for one semester of my final year, getting an early graduation in DEC-1978, w/Commencement in 1979. Before that I was over terrorizing the High School at Meeteetsie, WY. My SR Year at Sheridan High I went through 5 or 6 girlfriends, attended darn few classes... chewed Copenhagen in class, wore my spurs nearly every day; and despite School rules, I wore my Hat in the halls, drank a lot and was generally a bad example of what a ranch Cowboy should be. What can I say, I was 5'6", 125lbs of insecurity... ? My black 1946 Chevy Truck always had half a case of beer and a bottle of Whiskey hidden under the hay-bales stacked in the bed; Which is why I kept the Stock-racks on, and a saddle cinched up on top (to distract). Truth was, every one in the Cowboy crowd knew who to see to get a pinch of Copenhagen, or a stiff drink at lunchtime. They just looked for the skinny little Cowboy strutting around in the Pink shirt and the big black Hat surrounded by a group of girls. Growing up came long and hard for me, but through the grace of God I may just make it yet...

With all the changes our once great nation has endured over the last several decades, I ask that each of you make every effort to raise your children and especially your grandchildren up to hold and cherish those simple values that made America the 'Lighthouse of the World'; i.e., love God/Love one another/Love America enough to defend her when asked or needed... and a valid part of that commitment means being strong enough to prevent our public from being disarmed or limited in their ability to arm themselves in ANY fashion. We must be good stewards of the individual lives that God has granted each of us, and willing to defend ourselves and our families in the face of any enemy.

Backyard 'Farrier Convention', El Paso, TX 2003. I was shoeing horses full time, working as a Private Investigator on the week-ends and going to College full-time in the evenings; all while going through another failed attempt at finding Mrs Right. No wonder I look so rough...
P.S. I sure miss that dog.

Shoeing the "World Famous" Lipizzan Stallions during one of their annual visits to Las Cruces, New Mexico, 2001. I worked as a back-up Farrier for them for 3yrs while shoeing full time out of El Paso, TX. I began Shoeing in the El Paso area while still in the Army in 1998, and continued until leaving for Chaplain Officer Basic Leadership Course in 2007. I had been shoeing on the side while stationed at Ansbach, Germany previous to this, where I was the principle Farrier to the European Rodeo Association from 1995 to 1998.
