Also, please remember James McPherson from Rockingham. Died during Vietnam in 1968. He and my late husband were in basic training together- Fort Bragg.

I'm Thinking James was Rohanen'66 and President of that Class, My first wife Judy Forbis, was a member of that class and was really upset, when we found out about him losing his life in Viet Nam :cry:

I am pretty sure he did graduate from Rohanen. Bobby did not talk much about Vietnam, but I do recall his comment that James was a really good guy with a huge heart for others. James was killed just a few days before MLK Jr. lost his life. James lost his life for all the people in this country, even the ungrateful ones. Freedom is not free.
