Yes! Attending Reunion

Just thought some of you might like this story of one of our class mates. When I got out of school I hung out in a few old dives like the rest of us, and the military draft was about to catch up with me so I joind the navy. I did 10 months of training and then was sent to Viet Nam with a Sea Bee Construction Batallion. After a few weeks in country, I was standing in the chow line when I thought I saw a familar face. He looked back at me in the same way. When I figured out who I was looking at, it was Benny Ruiz! We danced around the chow hall a few times and found out that we were both in the same Company and same Batallion. We done our 2 tours together and have been close freinds for the past 45 years. He lives down here in paradise (Florida). I have been here since 1978.
