I saw two pictures on Facebook that made me stop and think that we have many classmates who served this country. I would like to create a new link "Our Veterans" and invite all our classmates who served to send me old pictures of themselves in uniform for that section. I will start with Gino Lynch and Steve Ross whose pictures on Facebook inspired this idea. Please help us make this new section one we can be proud of by sending those pictures. If you know any classmates that are Veterans, please let me know who they are so I can contact them to request the pictures. Thanks.

Al Hoppe US Army Vietnam 1968
Attached is the US ARMY picture of me as requested!
It was taken in 1968 in PHU LOI Vietnam where I was a member of the 520th Transportation Battalion Helicopter Repair Company.
Hi, just looked at the veteran page. I served 20+ years in the US navy serving
on 5 aircraft carriers, making 2 Mediterranean, 2 Pacific, and 1 round the world
cruises, served a 3 year tour in the Philippines (with family),. retiring in
1985 as a Chief Aviation Fire Control Technician. I'm not too sure that I can
find a photo. Important events: in 1972, I married a USO volunteer. Important
places: in 1971 I sat on the steps of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece and
thought about "old." and in 1985, I stood at "ground zero" in Hiroshima, Japan
and looked up 1000 feet..

It's hard for me to completely remember what it was like to be this
18-year-old Airman (back in 1962). And yet, I do remember feeling
excited upon graduating 12 months of technical school, and optimistic
about leaving for an 18-month assignment in Turkey.
If you want to be recognized as a veteran and can't find a picture of yourself in uniform, then you can improvise like Army vet Frank Curtin. Nice hat Frank.
Thanks to Frank Curtin's daughter for digging this picture up after much searching.
