Comments:

Went into Air Force and lived in Germany where I met my wife (she is from Oregon), a teacher for military children. Had 4th year in Air Force at Tampa. Moved to Atlanta area where I worked with Travelers Insurance Domapany in administration for nearly 3 years. Then started with the American Heart Association where I stayed for 30 years recruiting, training and working volunteers in public education and service (blood pressure screenings, CPR training, nutrition, healthy living, and in that necessary evil- fund raising). My wife and I are now both retired. Cricket has just finished one year of chemo from ovarian cancer and is now in remission. We love being married to each other, camping, music, traveling, being active in our Methodist church and as a very active Gideon and an Auxiliary. Our boys are happily married and have 3 and 2 children. Our oldest is in Northern Virginia as a government IT specialist and our younger one is at Warner Robins Air Froce Base 1 1/2 hours north of us and a major and, like his brother, is an IT specialist.

School Story:

I especially liked my electronics class with Mr. Barringer. Building radios and other items. Also we had fun from time to time charging up small capacitors and catching someone in class on the back of the neck with a small surprise zap. It never hurt them but it sure did make them jump. Fortunately for Mr. Barrenger, anyone who tried doing it to him found that he had a very high resistance factor and it never bothered him.
