Army Officers are not required to buy sabers while in OCS, ftr.
Hi everyone, Thanks for all your suggestions. slantta I have literally called, I feel like everywhere and I had no luck. I called the VA in Austin, Camp Mabry in Austin. I also called multiple places at Fort Hood, including: the MWR, MRW equipment rentals, The 1st Cav band, the protocol office, and 3 different chapels on post. All with no luck and most people didn't even understand what I was talking about. I have asked my FI to give it a try to see if he has better luck, if he does, i will post it here. One place I haven't tried yet is UT's ROTC program (thanks rmkuffel). We have started asking my FI friends if they kept their sabers from when they were in school, which are apparently not technically the "correct" ones to use, but at this point I don't know what else to do. Oh, one more thing, slantta, there used to be a place in Killeen to rent the sabers, many of my friends kept recommending I call them, but they are out of business, just FYSA. I'm sorry I haven't had actual success, but hopefully this will save you some time on your search, good luck! Can you let us know if you find anything I'd love to know. rmkuffel Thanks for the suggestion that's what we're probably going to do.
