Senior at National Games Called to Serve

Army Colonel James Houston
The following story is by Cathy Cobbs, of or for the Columbia Star newspaper and can be found at 
Duty calls tennis champ from National Seniors Game.

Here is an excerpt.

“The guy would serve with his right hand, then switch and return with his left hand,” Houston said. “By the time I figured it out, I wasn’t able to give him much of a match.”

The consolation match to determine the bronze medal winner was scheduled, but Houston, who is the commander of the dental program at the base, had to return to Columbia to welcome a new set of soldiers who were beginning a residency program the next day. The two opponents tried to move the match up, but schedules could not be coordinated, and Houston had to reluctantly leave Cleveland forfeiting the match."
