Comments:

9-01, Teaching and Grad school demands/commitments have forced me to cancel my planned trip to Md. for the reunion. It's just too early in the semester for a trip. I'll miss seeing y'all. Have fun!

Graduated U of Md. 1974 Agronomy-Zoology. Active duty U. S. Army 74-78. Served as tank commander in Germany.

My cavalry platoon did a stint on border patrol with the Bundeswehr (West German Army). That was the best duty in NATO for tankers. We got to see Ivan and the Red Army up close as they patrolled their side of the wire. At border incidents and maneuvers they'd show up with 30-40 T-72s (tanks). We'd roll in with 3 and try to look formidable! They did give us an APC with loudspeakers for Psych-OPs . We'd play Jimi Hendrix or James Gang real loud... drove the Comrades crazy!
I attended the 10 year reunion, missed the 20th (at Ft. Knox during Gulf War). Missed 30th. Served with Md. Park Police -MC and PGC 1980-2004, retired. Served MdARNG
armor and infantry units 1982-1988. U.S. Army active duty- Gulf War.
I teach 7th grade science at a middle school in suburban Jacksonville. ( Yes- I do teach evolution down here in the south!!) My 7th graders cannot believe our old NHS dress code. They wear board shorts and flip flops down here-almost year round.

School Story:

I had a major crush on Mrs Jones, the Soc. teacher.
Remember her mini skirts/ and long brown hair??
My pals were: Walter Lee, Lee Levine, Frank Leonard? (from Ky.), Oren Kaplan (in Israel now), Larry Jerman, Jim Clinchy.
