  • Home of Record

    https://valor.militarytimes.com/hero/97268#151915

    Notice the home of record, Waco Tx.

    Midland is 320 miles from Waco, when I was in the service your home of record was the town you lived in and when your enlistment was up the military paid to get you back to your home which was an important reason to make sure it's right.

      You can't fly to Temple on a large passenger plane, so you fly to Waco (closest airport with service) and drive to Temple.

            It costs less and is more convenient to fly to Austin then drive to Waco. Done it many times. Keep an eye out for Texas State troopers. They profile rental cars. Got a ticket outside of Cornell once that wasn't a pleasurable experience.

              Nobody from Midland is going to be driving to Waco to look for the treasure unless they are waco.

                I'm sure that's true, but American does fly to Waco, and we are talking about 1950s, before interstates were king. Central Texas is almost unrecognizable compared to back then in many ways. Temple to Waco is the shorter drive and that was probably of more importance in those days. I'm just postulating as to why Waco was Forrest's home of record.

                  It's a hint, postulate it as a hint.

                    So I'm home now, and I took a moment to look up what home of record means:

                    Home of Record is defined as the state where you first enlisted or from where you received a commission from one of the branches of armed services. HOR determines certain benefits, such as travel allowance back to your state when you leave the military.

                    Waco is as good as any other place since it is fairly close to Waco. Fort Hood is in Kileen, Texas, and that's right next door to Temple, and while Hood is an Army base, all military bases have services for all of the other services.

                    This likely doesn't have much to do with the treasure, but research into Fenn's past isn't uncommon in this search. When Fenn was asked if there were hints in TTOTC he replied yes, since the poem is in the book. I believe that there are other, as Fenn said, subtle hints in the book, but they are not hints about the treasure. They are hints about the person that placed the treasure, so he is telling us that reading the book will let you know more about him, and that is a clue. Remember that this entire chase is about Fenn leaving his legacy. He wants us to know about him, and he wants the treasure to ensure his legacy. The more we can learn about his life can give us, I believe, more insight into his thinking, and that's the real clue from his book.

                        It's not (much) entertainment either. But if it gives you a reason to get up in the morning, then a purpose is served.
