MPHS Veterans

[mustangs.gif]Morgan Park High School in Chicago is assembling a list of MPHS Veterans from the Vietnam era as was done for WWI, WWII, and Korea.   

They have asked us to help assemble names. Please send me the year you graduated or attended MPHS, your branch and dates of service, and whether you served in Vietnam.  A short description of your experiences would be nice and pictures are worth a 1,000 words.

Since there are now lots of folks falsely claiming to be Vets (Nice to be fashionable - who would have believed this in 1970?) perhaps you should send me something official proving your service. Preferably send a scan by email, but you can also send it snail mail to 5057 Creekside Trail, Sarasota, FL 34243.

I encourage you to write a long version of your experience with photos and publish it on line. And please send that to me for inclusion in the blog.

I will place the names and stories / photo on this blog, and provide the information to MPHS.

The JROTC dept has been trying to do a board for Vietnam MPHS alumni, as done for WWI, WWII, and Korea, outside the Principal's Office.

Jim Seamon referred me to you for this. I am teaching at MPHS (my children graduated from there 2000 and 2002 and went to the US Naval Academy -- my son, as a Navy Officer, did a 7-month deployment in Iraq with the 101st under the 1st Cav and my daughter's ship was deployed to the Gulf taking in Marines during the same time frame--I was in the Army starting in July '75--post Vietnam).

Do you have any sort of list? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
