Comments:

Spent time after graduating in Colorado, then got drafted during Vietnam War and spent two years in Army as Military Police (go figure) and as a Engineer. Got out of Army and went back to Colorado and furthered my degree in Engineering. Went to work with the Government and traveled all over the world working with U.S. Embassy's and foreign governments. Lived in Saudi Arabia, Thailand and traveled throughout Europe and the Far East. Then lived in San Jose and San Francisco, Ca. on special assignments Now live in Akron, Ohio and I am pretty much retired but do Security Consulting and Special Physical Protections for VIP's and contract work for Secret Service and Marshalls Service.

School Story:

My ROTC background allowed me to attain the rank of Sargent almost immediately when I went in the Army. So although it wasn't popular back then I was the richer for it.

I always remember you as Kendall Kinney's girlfriend in high school. Looks like you've done well for yourself. Have you ever run across Jeri Young?

Kendall,
How are things with you?
I guess you knew that Jerry Burkman passed away. Do you know what happened?
I see your still writing books-that's great. I'm writing a novel right now. It's about my travel with some twists in there. Hope to get it published next year. Let me know what's up?

You were my bery best friend in both my Junior and Senior years at Chruchill. We had so much fun in your little dark blue VW bug. Remember driving your brothers Black Chevy SS Super Sport-Oh my God we had so much fun driving this hopped up race car and burning out all over the Northside.

Our family considered you one of our own. We were proud of you when you were in the White House Guard in DC, representing the Navy and when you had a little bit of trouble we were there, as any family would be. We lost touch over the years when I traveled overseas and lived in so many states, but when I last ran into you when visiting SA it was amazing to see you and talk about old times.

When I am in SA again I will lay flowers on your grave and think about those great times. Till then Rest in Peace my very good friend!

Paul
