Howdy!
« on: February 24, 2018, 09:20:56 AM »
My name is Richard Pruitt and I use Pruitt as my username. I grew up in Louisiana and lived there most of my life. I now live with my daughter in Texas. I post regularly on Armchair General and Historum.

Welcome aboard, Pruitt!

You didn't by chance go to HS in San Antonio, did you? Long shot, but I knew a Richard Pruitt back then in ROTC. I'm in the Houston area, myself, and we have another grog up Austin way.

Welcome, Pruitt!  I remember seeing you knocking around Armchair General.  I vaguely recall you being a music guy.  Check my sig line and come vote!  :bd:

Thanks for the warm welcome. I grew up in Lake Charles, LA and lived in Sulphur, LA most of my life. I now live with family in Tarkington, TX. I am one of the minor moderators at ACG. To paraphrase Bon Scott, "Its A Long Way To The Top If You Want To Rock And Roll!".

There are Pruitts all over. I even went to school with some! I doubt they were close relations. Grandad Pruitt came to Sulphur from Joplin Missouri! For what it is worth, I found out there are 23 different ways to spell Pruitt. Thank God my ancestors were the only bunch that could read and write when they came over...  ::)
