Alright, I'm a VMI alum from a decade ago (99) and I was checking out this and other sites sort of by chance. I guess, since I've been recently inundated with materials for my 10 year reunion, I've been feeling a bit nostalgic for the old Very Merry Institute. Anyway, my favorite VMI alumnus is not General Marshall (although I do, of course, have huge respect for him). What you, my friends in cyberland, may not know is that Fred Willard, the hilarious film actor ("Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show," "A Mighty Wind" among others), is a graduate of the Institute ('55). "Hey, Wha Happened?" A lesson to those future rat-ties, you CAN retain your sense of humor throughout the coming year. Rah VA Mil!!!!!
