POP QUIZ

Old Classmate?
Have you been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking...surely I cannot look that old?  You may enjoy this short story, which could be true....

While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.

Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 50 years ago.
 
Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended LHS
.  "Yes," he replied.  "When did you graduate?" I asked.

He answered, "In 1954. Why?"  "You were in my class!" I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"

REMEMBER WHEN!
By Missy Parrish Stark*

Remember when we walked the halls,
Rushing to our next class;
Or the times we just gathered on the lawn,
Just to talk and sit on the grass!

Or how about the Friday nights,
And all those football games;
When we were so full of hope,
Our visions full of fortunes and fames!

Remember how proud we stood,
On graduation day;
And the sorrow that we felt,
As we went our separate way!

It's hard to believe how much we've changed,
In the fifty-five years that have passed;
But the friendships that we built back then,
Today, they still hold fast.

(*Written by the daughter of Percy Parrish
and dedicated to the Lubbock High School class of 1954.)

Joe,
Thought that this might be a link to add to the web site regarding Don Witt. It has an excellent picture of Don.

This is really sobering.   Click on the link and find the
city you went to high school and look at the names.  
Click on the name and it will give details of the death.
 
Vietnam 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
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, as many knew wonderful people
whose names are listed.

(Note by Joe Dale Bryan. Football players George
(LHS '47) and Charles Brewer (LHS '52) were
Robert Brewer's younger brothers. The Brewer and
Bryan family have been good friends since 1930.  I
was told that Robert Brewer and the other man safely
parachuted down and were shot on the ground by the
Germans.
This is further verified in Stephen E. Ambrose's 2001 book
The Wild Blue, Chapter 3, page 88 and Chapter 5, page
146 where it says from his interview with the commander
of the B-24 " They were now over Yugoslavia and all of
them, including Shostack, parachuted down safely, but
three of them were shot on the ground by SS troops who
claimed they were terrorists. "They didn't give them a
chance." Robert Brewer's body was reburied in the City
of Lubbock Cemetery after the war.)


Don, a great guy
