As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am 54.  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.
