Thanks Scott for putting it so eloquently. I would like to add a special thanks
to all the families of those who served. They made a huge sacrifice also ... enduring a long stretch of time without their loved one.
Times were so different back then. We didn't get that "Welcome Home Hero" when we came back. I still remember sitting in the old Park Sq. bus station in Boston at 3 A.M. in the morning waiting for a bus ride home after spending eight months in the jungles of Diego Garcia. As I started to doze off after being awake for a 60 hour trip back home (and still in uniform), a Boston cop whacked me across the knee caps and told me to move on. Yet there were drunks passed out on the floor and perverts standing by the men's room door.
Boy, have times changed.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth! As socially inept as I was at LHHS, I could always tell the difference between the 2 Liz Jackson's at school. Both were super intelligent, but 1 was much younger and prettier! Let you decide which Liz is which! ??

Paula, I thought I would escape New England cold, snow and ice--but I didn't go far enough unlike you, Peter Leonard and Peter Goodspeed, et al. My only serious winter time accident was on the iced sidewalks of DC. And while the area has had some snowmaggedons, my family (Deb, son Ben and I ) avoided the latest snowmaggedeon by moving into a condo--leave the plowing and shoveling to others and the car in the garage.

Hi Karen, Hope all is well. Can you believe it's been 50 years? WOW!
The ole neighborhood hasn't changed that much, just a lot of new neighbors.
We sold our house in 2005 when my mother passed so I've been thru there many times.
Paula still lives there ... never married. Valerie DeFreitas moved back to her parents house after her mother passed, remodeled it then sold it a couple of years ago.
Heard from Cynthia Gott on this site ... think she said she is going to the reunion.
Ricky Hoffman committed suicide years ago ... think he was charged with child rape.
Don't know if you remember Billy Sullivan. I think he lived next to you way back when. Ran into him about 15 years ago when we were both working for the same engineering firm.
I'm trying to re-arrange my schedule so I can go to the reunion.

Cheryl, were you on the "infamous" bus trip home from New Hampshire (I think the tourament was at Darthmouth). It was a treacherous bus ride home due to the ice storm. I believe it was Ms. Tookey who tried to put the team up for the night at a motel, but the parents back home said no. We got home 2 am or later.

Looking at the yearbook, I see Mrs. Noonan was the coach at the time of the photo. She did prepare the debate team. Not so much Ms. Tookey.

(Maybe someone I remember Steve as an amusing reconteur with a rapier like wit. We were debate partners on the LHS debate team( the debate coach never spent much time preparing us--so the team winged it for the most part). The gang (Steve, Phil, Rita, Jennifer and I formed) was enriched by Steve's presence. 

A Lynn Item columnist on Steve's death wrote about Steve's wealth of information and keen insight. He said that Steve should have a column of his own in a newspaper.

I was able to meet with Al Holt about 2003 as he had sent me condolences on my Dad's death.  We lived within 30 miles of each other and met several times for lunch near his job at Barnes Airforce Base in Westfield MA.

We both were looking forward to going to the 35th Class reunion however, as it turned out a 50th Reunion was planned!  I'm glad l got to see him and know that he was looking forward to seeing all his classmates! RIP Al !
