First time in Georga in 1976

My first visit to Georgia was on a bus traveling from Fort Jackson, South Carolina, to Fort Benning, Georgia. I was stationed in Georgia for 5 months; 3 months for Officer Candidate School, a one month wait, then 1 month for Airborne School. I was by myself for the first month, then Kim and baby Zac flew to Georgia and stayed in Ft. Benning housing until we moved on to Virginia.

I voted for Jimmy Carter while I lived in Georgia.
I traveled to Plains, Georgia,
on Carter's first visit to his hometown after winning the 1976 presidential election.
