the Lost and Found Department: Over the last year, thanks to the efforts of
Dewey Low, we have found some of our long lost friends: Bill Cordray
and William “Red” Thompson in Indiana.
Noel Miller in Georgia, Allen James, Andy Rodecker, and Simone
Mingone in New York, John Trella in Florida, and Joseph Perez in West
Virginia. Nice work Dewey! FYI: I found Al James on my first call in
NYC, of all places, Most times, though, it takes a little detective
bought a Time Magazine from October 27, 1967, off of eBay the other
day. It has an interesting article and photos on the Anti War demonstration
at the Pentagon and that most of us were a part of. I also have an article from The Chronicle Review
written by Maurice Isserman, Professor Isserman was a 16 year old participant
that weekend. I have been in email contact with Professor Isserman,
who asked to use a few of my recollections in his article. I’ll bring
both magazines to our next reunion.
