None of my first High School class served in Viet-Nam but a couple of acquaintances were kill along the way in traffic accidents (one of these being a fitting end to an epic jerk), accidents on arch?ological expeditons, and the like. But of my college buddies (I was class of '72 at Washington and Lee University), the four closest to me were dead by the time of my twentieth reunion. It is a very sobering realization to recognize that those we now closely now have cross the interface between life and death. Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh b?s fir gun ghr?s fir!
