I see that a many have wrote a lot about their past life so here goes! After HS when Doug Walther, me and others found out how lucky we were and Dave Buerman found out that "one" is the loneliest number when it came to the draft, I thought it would be neat for the three of us to fly helicopters. We were already flying low and fast in our Roadrunners, etc. so this should be no problem. Well I was the only one who signed up. A long story later I was flying the friendly skies of South Viet Nam. After many attempts to swat me from those skies, on October 1972 they finally did. I was wounded flying a MEDAVAC mission and spent the next year in the hospital at Ft Leonardwood. After that I went to Ft. Ord in California and flew all over central and northern California. That was a great time. Got out in 1975 and began my healthcare career. I was first a healthcare planner out of Perryville, Mo and then a Practice Administrator in Columbia at the University of Missouri. Received my under grad degree in Healthcare and went on the manage several large and small medical practices ending up in Florida. While in Florida I obtained my Masters in Healthcare Administration from the University of St. Francis, Joliet IL. We have been in Florida for over 24 years now. Currently Jan and I (the love of my life for over 37 years) live in Land O Lakes, yes like the butter, which is a little north of Tampa. We live on a large ski size lake kind'a like my parents in Lake Ozarks but not as large. Funny how we all follow in their foot steps! Looking forward to retiring soon but with all this talk of healthcare reforms who knows!!

School Story:

We all remember the prank!! The greatest of all time. I remember all of the drag racing on Wiehaup and Halls Ferry. Riding through Steak & Shake at Hwy 140 and the Circle. Had great fun at St. Jude's dance on Sunday's and Bellefountain Country Club in the summer. I remember the midnight raids on my parent's bakery shop, Maries Pastry Shop on Fridays to sop up the booze. Lake Ozarks at their place was fun too!! Several of us had boats at the dam and our cars on the strip, what a way to pick up babes!! Some great times and let's not forget Echo Lake?
