Comments:

Following a military, business and Govt career covering White House staff, Depts of Energy, Army and Defense, we moved from DC to Lake Tahoe. Had season ski passes at Heavenly for seven years - and flew for the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Angel Flight. Now in Florida we did boating in our tiny condo-on-the-water.
Sold airplane and motorcycle, gave away skis, sold boat (second happiest day for boater), moved to high rise in St Pete, FL, overlooking Tampa Bay.
Then moved to Naples, FL - need to settle down before it is too late.
Have fun everyone, there's not much time left - stay healthy and happy!

I entered West Point 65 years ago today (5 July 1955).
Other PAHS guys there at the same time were: Tony Smith '53; Glenn Hall, Harry Hughes, Lou Sullenberger - Brad Hosmer was in USAFA first class (1959); all '54; Al Baldwin, Bob Edwards, Skip Schow, Bob Tripp, John Guthrie - all '55 and Phil Smith '56 (Sandy's brother). Possibly others, maybe USNA. Lee Harvey's brother Mike, was USMA '58, but not PAHS.

Skip graduated from West Point in the Class of 1959 near the top of his class. Several of his PAHS '55 contemporaries were in that same class. He had a very successful career in the Army, retiring as a Colonel.

A very nice write-up about my close friend and both PAHS and USMA '59 classmate. Bob was a wonderful guy who made friends easily, had a great sense of humor and was an all-round "good guy". Bob was taken almost before he had time to set out on his chosen career as an Armor Officer.  One of these days we will all be reunited Bob - see you then.  John Guthrie

Happy Birthday soon, Sandy - why don't we all agree on a permanent age to celebrate each year?
