Central Plains Chapter


David Bennett – Chapter President

Kansas City, Missouri 


The Chapter’s second Zoom Meeting was held Monday May 6th.  Guest Speaker and Chapter member Peter Grande, of Leavenworth, Kansas,  presented “HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES DISCIPLINARY BARRACKS – FORT LEAVENWORTH.”

The presentation was highly fascinating and Peter did a masterful job recounting the history of the Disciplinary Barracks.

Dave Bennett shared and discussed some of his collectibles, including a Nathan Starr 1813 Cavalry saber and an 1862 dated Corporals 

appointment in the 9th Cavalry, Missouri State Militia signed by Colonel Odom Guitar. 

Paul Rosewitz, St. Louis Chapter President, was invited to attend and give an update from the National meeting, specifically

information regarding the 2024 National Meeting in order for chapter members to start planning attendance. 

Our condolences to chapter member Bill Jordan, who was unable to attend due to the passing of his father. 

 Several members attended the Kansas City Collectors Club military Show held in Overland Park Kansas on May 6th. 

Our next Zoom Meeting will be held the 2nd Monday of June, the 12th at 7pm central.
