From Phil Hammond ('64) of UT - 04/01/10 - "Spring Snow in Park City Utah":
|Just when I had hung up my skis for
the winter ( I hate spring skiing) we were hit with over a foot of great
light snow! Yesterday was one of my best days on the mountain all year.
I even had a few face shots. This is usually what happens when we have a
lean year for snow fall. Two weeks before closing we get hammered and
have to just watch it melt away. Anyway here are a few more pictures for
your pleasure. I had a great time taking them.
WOW! Here outside St. Louis we're enjoying what I've always considered to be one of the prettiest weeks of the year, the first week of April. Tree are budding, daffodils and tulips are blooming everywhere - and you're still having snow! What a beautiful and blessed country we have! Thanks, Phil!
From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 04/02/10 - " Viet Nam Deaths, very impressive records.":
Carol...don't know if this link has been sent to you or not...but I find
it very informational....a lot of the names on the memorial were killed
in 3 months or less after their tour of duty started......
This is very impressive.
VIETNAM VIRTUAL WALL
First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam War with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site. Pass the link on to others if you like.
Thank you so much, Janice! I had seen and used this site extensively seven years or so ago, but they took it down and redesigned it, so it was unavailable for a time. We've posted it twice in recent weeks (once on your birthday!), but we've had an influx of Newbies since that time, and it's so important, I wouldn't want anyone to miss it:
