A Short Military Bio.
By Gene Lutz
My name is Gene Lutz, of the Calallen Class of '89. I was
browsing the Calallen website and noticed you're looking for
information about former Wildcats from each year. This is my
contribution to your wonderful website.
I am a Captain in the US Army and I am in the 709th
Military Police Battalion stationed in Germany. I have participated
in Operation Enduring Freedom and will be deploying to Operation
Iraqi Freedom later this year.
After a three year tour of duty enlisted in the
Air Force, I returned to Texas A&M University-College Station and
graduated as a member of the Class of '98.
Upon graduating from A&M and commissioning in the Army I spent three
years stationed at Fort Hood where I did numerous jobs including
being the Officer In Charge of the Special Reaction Team (SRT).
Last year I received my Master's Degree from Webster's University
in Missouri while attending the Military Police Officer's Advanced
Course. Needless to say, I've been a little busy over the past
My wife Melissa, who is also from Corpus Christi, and I have been
married for eight years and we have three beautiful little girls;
Hannah, 6 1/2, Adeline, 5, and Victoria, 3. We also have another
on the way, due in July (hopefully a boy).
I am proud to be a Wildcat, proud to be an Aggie, but most of all,
proud to have the opportunity to serve my country. I know this is
probably more information than you wanted but it's just a thumbnail
sketch of the life of just one Wildcat. I hope it is a helpful
contribution to your website.
I included a couple of pictures of myself from when I was in charge
of the Fort Hood SRT. The first one is of me with a helicopter
pilot who supported our missions in places to remain nameless. We
were on the ground in between missions. I'm the one on the right.
The second picture is of me conducting an Australian Rappel during
some training with the team.
Thanks for maintaining a website that let's us connect with our
past a little.
