Roger W. Ruchti
Roger W. Ruchti
Class of 1960
Air Force, 4 Years

I was getting drafted, so I enlisted in the Air Force. I made Sgt. by the time I left Nha Trang Vietnam in 1966. I was there for support and not in harms way, and was lucky to make it home as the base came under attack one day before I left. I rolled out of my bed with the mattress over my body, and my friends all thought I was nuts until I told them why. I lost my luggage between Hawaii and San Francisco as when I flew into Chicago there was a snow storm and here I was with my summer uniform on. My winter uniform was what was missing. Thanks to dad for my bomber jacket that I sent home. It was a different life while in the military and I was always helping out my superiors who needed the help. I still wear a Air Force jacket and cap during the fall season or winter depends on the temperature. I am a proud American who gave his life for God and company.
