Unusual Fred Hoover story

Jan 24, 2022, 8:03 PM

I was a freshman in high school at the time and living in Presque Isle ME. I was playing basketball on the youth team at the air base. One of the adults helping with the program was a 2nd Lt. named Hoover.
When I got to Clemson and went down to the athletic department for some reason (that I don't remember) there was this guy that looked familiar, but I couldn't place him. Someone told me his name was Fred Hoover, but I didn't make the connection at that time. The next time I saw him, I said I know you from some place." He said "You look familiar too." About a minute later it dawned on me and I asked "Were you stationed at Presque Isle Air Force Base in 1956-57?" He replied "I knew I had seen you somewhere before."

One of the few times I ever ran into anyone that had been stationed the same place as my dad.

I remember Fred and his right hand man, Herman McGee. The two were a pair and great Clemson reps!
