Celest H Blocker Jr.

My name is Celest H Blocker Jr., born July 6, 1951.  I was born in Atlantic City Hospital to Delores and Henry Blocker. I have six sisters and two brothers. As a child growing up I was raised in South Egg Harbor City. I attended South Egg Harbor Elementary School and Oakcrest High School, where I graduated in 1970.  I also attended Atlantic County Community College for two years before I went into the United States Army in 1973.   I served two terms in the Army, active and the rest was reserve.  During my military career I was married twice, I have six children.  After I had been discharged from active duty I worked in Atlantic City at Resorts Casino Warehouse as the shop steward for fourteen years.  I then retired as a 100% disabled veteran in 2003.  I then moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina where this has been my home every since.

Chip Almost Galloway

I was born in Pittsburgh, PA.  During 1st Grade my family moved to just outside of the city to Wilkinsburg, PA. I graduated from Wilkinsburg High School and attended Penn State University on a Naval ROTC Scholarship.  During my 2nd year at PSU, I met the love of my life (Cyndy), during her first week in school.  We have enjoyed our marriage of over 27 years by exercising open communication, honesty and respect. Together we have produced two children: a son, currently serving in the USAF (preparing for deployment in March 2008) and a daughter, currently in her sophomore year of studies at Winston-Salem State University.  We are both in our 2nd careers after retiring from 25 year positions in banking.

I have been a motorcycle enthusiast since learning to ride at the age of fourteen.  I was introduced to Harleys while living in Florida during the early 1980s. When HD broke off from AMF, they attempted to improve their image by offering test rides to any Florida resident having a helmet and a valid motorcycle endorsement.  Unfortunately, personal obligations did not permit a HD purchase and I continued to enjoy my Hondas.  However, after experiencing my sister fighting (and loosing) a ten year battle with Cancer, I decided to just “DO IT”. I splurged on a new 2005 HD Road King Custom. I enjoy riding any time I can and have logged over 33,000 in just under 3 years.  Although I enjoy the Wing vs. HD teasing, I respect each safe motorcycle rider, even those using the extra wheel.

I’m grateful for running into the fine people of F Troop. I am looking forward to getting my Full Colors and to active participation and camaraderie with the proud members of Buffalo Soldiers MC, Fayetteville, NC.
