He returned to Fort Campbell in Feb. Thanks to Tom (Smith) Kidd for letting me know about this site.

Anacortes, Wa. 98221
Marital Status: Married
Spouse Name: Patricia
Children: four step-sons &emdash; Bill, Bob, Jim, Steve
Occupation: Carpenter, pastor, now disabled
Comments: My life hasn't been boring to say the least . Though I've been in severe pain for 35 years, I've had adventures that money just can't buy. (By the way, I finally got taller; I'm 5'6" now) My wife went to Stanford at the age of 16 to study physics.
We've smuggled Bibles into the Soviet Union. I was a messianic pastor for 14 years (don't look at me, I was shanghaied by God). I've been to Israel 15 times. The Second Intifada (Civil War) started literally under our feet when we were in the Muslim Quarter.
I found the first writing at Kumron since the Dead Sea Scrolls. As far as I know I'm the only person to have rapelled down the cliff that goes to the cave of Kumran.
I've taught in a little village in Kenya. Toured Egypt. Preached to thousands in Ethiopia (not my fault, I was set up by an Ethiopian friend of ours. By the way, I'm no longer afraid to speak in front of people). Taught in a conference in South Korea. And many other things.
I never got to be normal, but now I celebrate my eccentricities, I'm never going to act my age, and now that I'm no longer in the workforce I don't have to. Online friends keep guessing that I'm in my teens. (BTW, I'm looking for someone to sign my 1972 yearbook &emdash; "the little red-haired girl" that's what I called her. It's a sweet Christian message. And if anybody has any idea who she is, please let me know.)

I got married 3 months after graduation. I left the area in 1979 with a new baby. We relocated to Northern California in the town of Windsor. I became a loan officer in that same year. After 18 years of marriage I became pregnant with my second child. I divorced in 1996. My oldest daughter Katie, works at Sonoma State University and my youngest daughter, Megan, will graduate Healdsburg High School in June 2011. I currently work as a paralegal specializing in Elder Care and families with Special Needs members/children. I look forward to my youngest finding her way in the world and leaving the nest, for me to find my life partner, traveling and dancing more. It was so great and bittersweet to see the classmates.

Comments: I'm still alive somehow, for now. I discovered MySpace through alumni on our site here and have discovered many old and some new friends there. Go to Myspace above for a laugh and many recent pics. Don't mind hearing from any alumni, as I still love people.
Will I live to see 80?
I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I wasdoing "fairly well" for my age. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?" Then he asked, "Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?" "Oh no," I replied. "I'm not doing drugs, either!" Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?" I said, "No, my former doctor said that all red mea is very unhealthy!" "Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?" "No, I don't," I said. He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?" "No," I said. "I don't do any of those things and I work very hard and long hours." He looked at me and said, "Then, why do you care?"

Comments: Reuniting with friends again at the 30 years reunion was amazing. I had an enjoyable time with everybody. However, I would have liked to been able to visit with every person there. Those that were not in attendance, you were missed. It is clear that we are all linked in someway. We grew up together and experienced the first lessons of life together. That is significant. In some ways the bonds are closer now as the high emotions of youth have given way to the sobriety of age and wisdom. Thank you. I wish you a wonderful life. [July 1, 2004]

We married in San Diego and were transferred to Virginia Beach in 1990. We lived in Okinawa, Japan for 3 years, and came back to settle down in Virginia Beach where Dave retired from the Marine Corp. We have two great kids! Carole Ann is 19, and a sophomore at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia where she is majoring in Communications with a minor in World History. Billy is 15, and a sophomore at Tallwood High in Virginia Beach. He is an avid baseball player and all-around funny man! We actually got to go back inside CV the last day of school on [June 16, 2004]. It was a blast! The school has grown so much bigger, and Carole Ann thought it was as big as a college campus. It was so fun to see all the kids come running out of the school when the bell rung for summer vacation. Both of my kids said that it looked like a great place to go to school and I had to agree with them! CV was, and remains a great high school! [November 23, 2008]
