POSTPONED – VMI Trip to Ft. Robinson

Your VMI Alumni Association has secured reservations in the highly sought-after Comanche Hall on the restored western Ft. Robinson. Ft. Robinson is owned and operated by the State of Nebraska Department of Parks and Wildlife. It is one of America’s best kept secrets. Our Nexus to VMI regards Carter Page Johnson, VMI Class of 1875, the only VMI graduate who distinguished himself as a soldier during the settling of the west after the Civil War. Johnson was stationed at Ft. Robinson for most of his career and earned fame and glory reflected in numerous paintings by the renowned artist Frederick Remington.
