Veterans’ Day 2012

To all the Veterans who served our country … Thank you VERY Much.  We owe our gratitude to the Vets for putting their lives on the line in service to our country.  At the end of this posting, please click on the “add a comment” or the “x comments” (where x is a number) and add your words of gratitude.  Last year only a few people added their words of thanks.  I actually don’t believe many members of our class saw the posting.  Perhaps they did and a lack of comfort with the computer prevented them from saying their thanks.  So to the Vets of our class (and all Vets), please accept these few words of gratitude for everyone who served with you in high school.

Our class had many men and women who served their country.  Many saw action in Vietnam.  Some died while in service to our country.  Many will never be the same as they were in high school.  All were very young.

If you are a member of the class of 1965 and a vet and your name is not listed, please let us know using Contact (to the right under the Main Menu).  Your name will be promptly added to the list.  If you are a vet and have some words to say please feel free to comment at the end of this posting.

  1. Thank you to all the Veterans who served our country so proudly and especially our classmates from LEHS Class of ’65. We are forever grateful.

  2. Thank you to all veterans, and especially to those of you who were my classmates (LEHS Class of ’65). You’re the best!

  3. Thanks for putting this list together. It looks like a combination of classes. I see Bruce Phillips in there and he was in my class of 64.
    Thank you to all who served and to all your children and grandchildren now serving.
