From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/08/13 - "TYPHOON in Annapolis":
Alex Haley statute gets a hand shake from Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL during our visit to Annapolis, MD for the sixth Annual Reunion of "Recruit Platoon 276 Parris Island 1957" and one of our Drill Instructors and his wife made it from Maine. The tour of the US Naval Academy was very professional. It was nice to visit Annapolis again.
