Calling all MPHS Vets

Morgan Park High School in Chicago is assembling a list of MPHS Veterans from the Vietnam era as was done for WWI, WWII, and Korea. They will place the names outside of the Principal's Office.   They have asked us to help assemble names. 

Please send me the year you graduated or attended MPHS, your branch and dates of service, and whether you served in Vietnam.  A short description of your experiences would be nice, and pictures are worth a 1,000 words. 

Since there are now lots of folks falsely claiming to be Vets (Nice to be fashionable - who would have believed this in 1970?) perhaps you should send me something official proving your service. Preferably send a scan by email, but you can also send it snail mail to 423 High Street, Peoria, IL 61606. 

I encourage you to write a long version of your experience with photos and publish it on line. And please send that to me for inclusion in the book / blog that Jim Seamon and I are developing about the experiences of all of us during the 60's - Veteran or not.  

You can post on facebook or email it to me at: 

Everything is posted to Our Blog 

I will place the names and stories / photo on this blog, and provide the information to MPHS.
