Class of 1970

Military Police.....Played Football for two years for the 559th military police @ Fort Monroe Va. At the time it was the Continental Headquarters of the United States Army. There were two officers for every enlisted man. Google Fort Monroe, it is a Fort that was built before the civil war. Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, was imprisoned there after the civil war. . It is a cool fort. It even has has a mote. When I think of our Brothers and Sisters that severed in Vietnam, I realize I was stationed in Disneyland. Let us never forget those who were wounded or gave their lives for our county,... whether we think the war was right or wrong....they paid the ultimate price. May God bless them and their families.
