Sixty-three years ago, in October of 1951, Rex Abernathy was drafted into the U.S. Army. He survived a train wreck and a flood en route to basic training. After a lengthy delay, he arrived at Fort Riley, where he was handed a mop and assigned to a clean-up detail for three weeks, before being sent back home to Alabama for Christmas break. It looked to be a slow start for Abernathy. After basic, he was sent to Germany, where he was once again put in a holding pattern as he watched one Soldier right after another ship out for advanced training. He was finally sent back to the states, having learned that his mother was terminally ill. He was assigned to Fort Benning, where he was selected to play tackle for the 30th Infantry football team. Abernathy saw action on the football field before he saw action in Korea. Every week, his orders were amended to extend his stay. "When mother passed on, I went back to the barracks that night after the funeral. There were two officers in a Jeep at the barracks. I was going to Korea," Abernathy said. "We had two games left to play in football. The coach came to see me when I came home from Korea. he said that we won eight games and lost two." Today, Abernathy lives in an assisted living facility in North Georgia with his ailing wife. He will be the guest of honor at today's Doughboy Bowl match-up between Fort Benning and Columbus State University. Look for Abernathy to accept the game ball after it's "dropped" in by the Silver Wings Parachute Exhibition Team. Join us for the Fort Benning Doughboy Bowl Oct. 23 at historic Doughboy Stadium on Main Post. The Doughboys will take on the Columbus State Cougars in the fifth annual match-up, which starts at 7pm. Tailgating starts at 1:30pm, with free kids’ activities, entertainment, a Silver Wings parachute exhibition and more. Refreshments will be available. Doughboy Football home games are always free and open to the public. We encourage our fans to wear black for this event.
