Rich Outzen ‘89, from Aragon to Antalya

Rich Outzen ‘89 is a retired colonel in the US Army and a language scholar and diplomat. At Dartmouth he was a lineman on the football team and a reporter for The Dartmouth; he used my notes to finish my story on the 15th reunion of the 1970 team, Lambert Trophy winners — I had interviewed Murry Bowden and Willie Bogan by phone but overdosed on tricyclics and was renditioned to Dick’s House to sleep it off like it was so much Rapier Punch.

Outzen was the star of Brian Moore’s documentary about ROTC “Army Green”.

Might be fun to update “Army Green” 36 years later, 18 up.

I wonder what Outzen would make of Hakan Sukur’s cafe on Bryant Street in Palo Alto;

I’d love to get him on a panel with Michael McFaul.

What does Rich Outzen think — or tweet — about the January 6 events?


Outzen attended Aragon of San Mateo whose alumni include musicians Pegi Young and Neal Schon, comic book Superhero creator Darick Robertson and filmmaker Brad Lewis (Ratatouille).
