Midwest Tour - 5/10/09
Elementary school friend, Mike, with son Thomas and wife Karen, enjoy photos from Mike's early years. There are several of us from that grade level that have been reuniting via the Internet after nearly 50 years! Mike is the first one I've visited face-to-face and he graciously invited us to stay overnight. We had a lot of early memories to share and it was such a privilege to visit so many years later. Mike spent his career in the Army as a Special Forces-qualified "Green Beret" and Paratrooper Medical Service Corps officer and combat medic. He currently holds a Ph.D in human biology (public health). He met Karen in Germany and Thomas is studying journalism at Syracuse University. Karen cooked us a traditional German dinner which tasted , ohhh so good!
