A little late this time, but here we go again. I still need letters and news from outside, inside and nearby. My due date for the next issue is 30 June 76. Please write or write again and again.
From Germany I received a letter from Clair Gill, the Dir of Fac Engrs, Ansback, which advises that he and Sherry had a baby girl on 14 Oct 75. It also seems Colin & Muriel Halvorsen had a mini-get-together at their qtrs in Illesheim on 17 Jan. Those attending were Steve & Marilyn Kempf of Mainz (Steve is S3, l/59th ADA (C/V), Jack & Dottie Keith of Schwaebisch and Clair & Sherry Gill. Clair also reports that he has seen John McCullough in Grailsheim and that he saw Rich Sinnreich's name in the 1st ADArty. Also in Germany is Charles McCloskey, who saw several classmates at Founders Day to include Lee & Ed Simpson, Pauline & Bob deLaar, Preston Moats and wife (mother of 4) and Tom Shaw and wife. Anyone in Jakarta, Indonesia, should look up the law firm of Adnan Bayins Assution and Assoc and drop in on Greg Letterman. He has been there since 18 Feb 76 and he plans to stay at least 3 yrs. Great place but a little out of my leave travel range, Greg.
Enclosed are 2 great photos of old, old, old I-2 cadets. Ernie Westpheling provided the shots.

Where did I hear that before? From the South, Bob Guy reports that Jodie, Bobby, Kathryn and he will report the 24th Div at Ft Stewart, GA. "You-all come on down and visit." Although mum's the word, Sue & Don Erbes are headed for my favorite town-Gainesville, FL. Whatever you do, Sue, do not let Don work late. Speaking of K-1, where are Steve & Olive Paek?
