    Hey guys,

    I'll be graduating from college soon, and plan to become a US Army warrant officer and fly helicopters for Uncle Sam.

    Do any of you know if the Army (or any military branch) has its own fencing clubs? Or if there are any military men and women here, how does fencing fit into your schedule? I can't find any information, and when I asked my recruiter he gave me the blank-stare-and-blink ;)

    I know that in fayetteville NC they have the 'all american fencing club' that I believe is on fort bragg. I'm sure the services have some access to fencing (I know the academies have teams from clubs to varsity, having fenced against both Army (club, but a good club) and Air Force (varsity, and also good)). Probably mostly depends on where you're stationed.
