Warriors?

Were there more than one Warriors D&B Corps? The one from Oshkosh WI folded in 1971 or 1972.

Do you have any idea when the Oshkosh Warriors became the Oshkosh Marauders??

The Oshkosh Warriors' last year on the field was '72. The Oshkosh Warrior Cadets came back for the '73 season and the Marauders first appeared in '74.

I know the Warriors folded before the 1973 season. I can still remember that day at the YMCA (I would have been 12) when the Board decided to fold the Warriors and keep the Warrior Cadets going. I remember questioning the adults about why they would fold the junior corps and keep the cadets going - it didn't make sense to me - it should be the other way since the Warriors were good and had recentlyn won a national title. The Cadets s__ked. Just another episode of me thinking the adults were stupid.

For 1973 a number of Warriors went up to the Americanos. The Board of the Americanos had to take a special vote to determine if they would/could allow individuals from Oshkosh to march with them. Oshkosh is less than 20 miles away - but everything was local back then.

In 1973 I was too young to go to Americanos so I stayed with the Cadets for that year. (Man we were bad - and we had a director that was just a horrible man). HA - some of the old Warriors wanted to march with the Cadets that year - we were a Cadet corps marching overage members and still s__ked.

I then bolted for the Americanos in 1974.

I don't know if the Cadets went one or two more years before folding.

I believe the Marauders were started by a family that was big in the Warriors - I don't know if it started in 1974 or 1975 (I think there was a year gap between the ending of the Cadets and the beginning of the Marauders.) I'm pretty sure they were in existence in 1976. I don't know how long they lasted - I actually don't know if they ever took the field or were just a parade corps. I don't think the Cadets went into being the Marauders. I think the Warriors and Warrior Cadets were both folded and a few families started the Marauders.

My brother recently pulled out his Warrior uniform shirt from the late 60s - I'm going to try to get a photo of it for this thread.

The Marauders were on the field in '74.

I used to work with a lady from Oshkosh whose brother still had his work shirt from the old Mars restaurant:

At this point in my life, I almost think it would be cooler to see that Mars shirt.

'Cuz I have an Oshkosh Warrior picture somewhere in the archives....

Hmmm. I'm also from Oshkosh. And have a brother that used to work at/manage the Mars drive ins and can't seem to throw anything away. I'll have to ask if he still has his shirt.
