I've got a few pretty good Ft. Larned stories, but this one still makes me smile. My wife and I were just visiting there one time (my wife's first visit) and there was a pretty good crowd of folks visiting that day. We strolled into the Enlisted barracks with about 15 other people, which really packed the foyer of that building. George Elmore (head ranger at the time) was working on something in the "closed off" area. He saw me there and said, "Come on in, Chris" and waved me in. My wife and I went in and George gave her the nickel tour (and let me demonstrate the operation of the trapdoor for her) - while all the other folks in the foyer were wondering what the heck we'd done to get the special treatment. George finally explained to them that I had volunteered there in the past, and he didn't just invite people in at random. It was a good day.
