Greetings once again from Chicago. Well, the good news is that our response to the '65 questionnaire has been overwhelming. Our thanks to Bobby Jones for returning the first questionnaire. Over 50% of the Cl has responded, which for something like this is phenomenal. The roster should be printed and mailed on or about the time you read this article in ASSEMBLY. If you have not sent your questionnaire in, please still do so since we will have a second update on this roster later this yr. Thanks to all of you who spent the 10 min necessary to fill it out and get back to me on time.
All of the questionnaires that were sent out asked the post ofc to provide an address correction. To date, we have only received a handful of those back without new addresses. So, if anyone knows where Zais, Mushovic, Hjelm or Dave Benton are, please let me know.
We had our Cl offspring pic sched for Homecoming last Oct, but unfortunately only one of our offspring showed up. I'm not sure what happened to the others, but if one of them is yours, please check on it.
Ted Kleinmaier wrote from Indianapolis, where he's involved with Silver Convenience Ctrs in IN< VA and NC. He and his family have been there since 70, after he was assigned to Ft Harrison from Vietnam. His "cookie cutter" real estate opn has to be one of the few doing well in this terrible real estate market.
As you can see by the pic of Kuhn and Lewis, they are celebrating John Seymour's hole-in-one at Kuhn's new golf club, the first hole-in-one on the course.

TJ talked with Ralph Adams, who works for Renault and Handley Real Estate in Santa Clara. Ralph still blames TJ for a blind date arranged Jun Wk--the blind date happens to be the same girl to whom Ralph had been married and with whom he has spent his life! He also saw Mike Applin in MD.

Speaking of good things, I understand that Loco (Ralph Locurcio) has made the BG list--congrats! Intelligence sources rep that he is still fixing the roads and toilets that Saddam destroyed.
Ron Wells read a recent article and wrote a rep that he had not, in fact, fallen off the radar screens. Since 82, he's been working for the Inst of Nuclear Power Opns, a co that was formed after the Three Mile Island accident in 80. It is a non-profit corp funded totally by 50 utilities in the US that operate nuclear plants in the US, plus 14 in Europe. Ron is on a two-yr asgmt, providing operational nuclear safety advice for the nationalized French utility. He works in Paris but travels throughout France. He returns this Aug to Atl with Erica and daughters Kim and Kelly.

Ron is inquiring as to whether anyone has seen or heard of Mike Shaver (according to our roster, Mike & Rose Anne are in LaCrosse, WI, where he teaches at Western WI Tech Coll). Mike, if you're out there, let us know. A great pic, Ron, and thanks for the update.
Also received a resume from Chris Needels, who is leaving his job at the NSC and is entering the civ world. Chris as some of you know, had a unique desk at the NSC, specifically Ollie North's old (physical) one. If anyone's interested, give Chris a call in Nokesville, VA.

Of their 7 kids, 4 are in college, 2 are married and 3 are out of sch. The colleges include RI Sch of Design, Slippery Rock (great place, great beer), CO State and Cornell. Linda travels a lot for TM Mkting, a communications co for the health-care ind.
Jim Golden rep that our 30th Reunion is initially sched for May 95 (28-31 May), but we can (and probably will) move it to a fall football game. Dave Kuhn has this info and is handling it.
And finally, in case you think that the Corps has (or hasn't for that matter), our last pic shows two of our stellar classmates (dep dean and pres) with nametags slightly out of alignment. At least the shoes are shined!
Well folks, that's about it for now. Keep those cards and ltrs coming, and if you send out a Christmas ltr to your friends and family this Christmas, why not add your friendly scribe to your mailing list? Send me a copy of this past one and put me on the list for next yr. Thanx!
