An alumni from the class of 1963, Jeanne Dethlefsen, has forwarded a photograph from Old Country Road school during the 1953-1954 school year. Jeanne sent along a list of names of those pictured. We went through the 1963 Yearbook and found photos of many pictured in that class.
However, there was a long list of people who were not in the 1963 yearbook and we can only speculate on what happened to those alumni. Here are the names Jeanne suggested...Lorraine Dethlefsen, Tommy D'Amoto, Jane Shackinback, David Sarota, Lynette Statz, Nancy Davey, Tommy Arundel, Marie Miller, Gail Mosely, Vernon Ritter, Larry Green, James Glass, Billy Hutchinson, Donald Mott and Matthew M.
Please go to the Photo Gallery and help fill in some of the blanks. If you recognize someone who is not named, please put a name to the face. Also, if you know what happened to your classmate, they moved, went to private school, went to Catholic school or whatever, give us a shout.
Vietnam War Era Memorial Project – UPDATE
back strong after a brief hiatus for the Holidays with a full head of
steam for the New Year! Good work continued in both December and
January with the addition of 49 new names for a new total of 1,765.
Also, substantial headway continued on filling in missing data for many
of the people on our List of Names.
addition to our efforts to build and refine the List of Names, Bill
Walden, serving as our local Project Leader on the scene in Hicksville
and Ken Strafer, our Project’s Original Founder, made positive strides
in January towards bringing our efforts to a successful conclusion.
Please see the full update in the Honoring
Our Veterans section
of the newsletter for details. You can also access the full List
of 1,765 Veterans by clicking on the link near the bottom of the update.
regard to missing data (as noted by red question marks on the List of
Names), it remains important for you to review the list for missing
information or existing information that needs correction, even if you
don’t have new names to send us. Please email me if you can help
us fill in these blanks. High school class year has been
specifically noted, where we have it, to make this review easier for you
by quickly scanning the list for people you may know. Please
pitch-in and help us make this Project a big success!
objective remains not to miss anyone who meets the Memorial
Qualifications and deserves to be included in the Memorial and you can
still help us make this happen.
hope all of you got off to a bright start in January and wish each and
everyone a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2012!

Our Alumni Have Visited
been looking at where our alumni have been and I'm sure there are no
stones unturned as far as where on this wonderful earth we have visited,
collectively. So many have been to Orlando, to San Francisco, to the
Empire State Building and to a multitude of places that have been very
don't we establish a catalog of who has been where and get some
background that we can share with our expanding newsletter mail list.
How many of my classmates have been on a United States Navy ship that
went up the Congo River 12 to 13 miles to the port of Banana?
did. Ask and you can find out.
