Stuart,

Thanks for the BD email - tried to send an email, but deficient computer skills got in the way. As a Big Laramie VFD member was on the Badger Creek Fire (21,000 acres) 5 days in the last couple weeks. USFS says it is contained - RIGHT! See you in the QCA next year for the 75th BD Party.

Go Maroons,
Jer,

I didn't know Jim well, but like some of the other respondents new him from athletics.  My favorite story comes from Jim Marsh.  I saw Jim about 6 years ago at an event in Rock Island, when I was visiting the QCA to see my Dad and Brother Bruce & Family.   We talked about some of our competitions in grade school.  Jim from  Washington and me from Franklin.  We specifically talked about an all Moline Public Elementary School Track & Field meet at Wharton / Browning (?) Field Complex where we both competed in the 50 and 100 yard dashes.

Jim told me the story about running in the 100 yard final.  He was in the lead when he heard something that sounded like a "steam locamotive" starting to overtake him.  Yes, it was Jim Cunningham.  I don't remember if Jim M. or Jim C. won.   But after playing 7th grade football with Jim Cunnigham, I also remember his determination when in competition.

Rest in Peace Jim and my condolences to your Family.

Mr. Coder was a very interesting and complex person.  He appeared gruff at times, but under that exterior facade was a very witty man.  I had few encounters with Mr. Coder, but one that proved very rewarding was when I was called to his office.  I had never been there and wondered "what had I done?".  

It seems that Mr. Coder had been asked if he had any potential candidates for two library page positions at the Moline Main Public Library downtown.   He had called in Phil Nissen, who for good reason, he felt would be an ecellant fit for the job.  In their conversation, Mr. Coder had asked Phil if he knew anyone else who might be interested.  Phil mentioned me.  So the call to see Mr. Coder was a job interview.  It went well and I felt that I never wanted to let Mr. Coder down.   Thank You Jack - and May You Rest in Peace!

ALL,   I think Stuart has an excellent idea! 

I had a email discussion with Phil Nissen and he made a good point, are their any other MHS "62" military Veterans who passed on active duty during Vietnam, Mauyeques (sp), Panama, Balkans, Granada, and maybe Desert Storm...?   Rick Andeson maybe able to sort data better than I, but after a basic "cut & paste" type check of classmates, it appears Mike Warren is the only one.   The thought being that if their are other classmates who died during active duty military the scholarship fund could be for all MHS 62 Veterans who passed while serving.   Either way count me in!

Jerry,

Rick,

Am terrible at checking comments and will try to do better. Geri and I do like the west after 2 years at BHJC, went to University of Wyoming and graduated with B.S.C.E. It was RVN as a USMC Helicopter pilot and when I got out came back to the Rockies. We retired along the Big Laramie River, 30 SW of Laramie, in 2010 and try to stay active.

Did participate in the WY SO (small pond) last year and did OK. Trying not to let my ego get in front of my physical abilities and am training for some T&F events this year hoping to qualify for the National SO in ABQ in 2019. Trying to make the body do things it hasn't done for awhile.

Hope all is well and if you are "Roamin Wyoming" give us a yell! God willing will be back for the 60th in 2022!

Go Pokes,
Jerry,

Margery,

I apologize for not being responsive to your comments. I need to check-in more often. Boomerang was or blue heeler, a phenomenal athlete and part of the family. We haven't replaced Boomer, but Chessie, our Turkish Van feline friend found us one day in August of 2015 - picture attached. We also take care of two (2) foster horses - Missy (20) and Dalila (5) - middle 2 in picture. We lease an old NOT active ranch, so they have about 800 acres to roam. We had 2 more Angle - big red (38) who passed in Dec. 2016 and Cowboy (5) who the owner gave to his grandniece.

Geri used to ride, but doesn't and if it doesn't have an ignition switch I don't have a license to operate. We live in a river valley in SE Wyoming which works pretty well for the horses.

For me a 1st cat and 1st horses has been a learning experience.

As they say here - we're just "roamin Wyoming" - Go Pokes,
Jerry,

Mike’s close friends and the letter from a “comrade in arms” were a fitting tribute to Mike’s spirit as a human being.  As an RVN Veteran, the letter especially hit me with Mike’s leadership in helping a new comrade affectionately termed “FNG’s” with the transition to the RVN War Zone.

The often expressed thought that. “Wars are started by the old and fought by the young” is appropriate for the Vietnam War.  Human Beings still have many flaws with the propensity for war being right at the top. Hopefully we conquer that insanity in the near future.

Mike Warren answered the call and paid with his life.  In combat, he served every day to save as many of his comrades as he could.  

Rest in Peace – Michael J. Warren

P.S.  After reviewing Mike’s page I figured out that we were probably in the same 43rd OCS Class at Quantico, Va in January of 1967.  This was along with 800 – 1,000 other “Candidates” with the same haircut.

Phil & Ruth,

Enjoy CR and when you come back to visit FTC, give us a yell!

Would appreciate your letting us know when you are open for business and send some pictures. I would add some recent photos from here in Poke Nation, but everything is covered with "white rain"!

Semper Fi / Go Maroons,
Jerry & Geri,

P.S. We will continue to hold the high ground!!
