Jack Camp, piper, 6th Army Pipe Band

I played for Jack’s celebration of life recently. Several generations of his family and many friends attended to pay tribute and express their love. He was very dear to his family and it was a sentimental day. Jack’s golfing friends were there and spoke of him with great fondness.

Jack was stationed at the Presidio in San Francisco during the years after WWII and was a piper for the 6th Army Pipe Band. It is always a special honor for me to perform in memory of such a man. Thanks to his son, Mark for these photos and blessings to his wonderful family.

  1. SSG George A. Moore, III US Army (Retired)

    I was born at the Preisdio in 1947. My parents and I lived at 755B Portola. My first memory was when I was about 18 months old. What I remember was hearing the Sixth US Army Bagpipe Band. I have never forgotten it and never will. My father was MSG George A. Moore, Jr from Eutaw, AL and later of San Luis Obispo, CA

    I miss and loved the Presidio, the Pipe Band and my parents each and every day.
