From Grade School, to High School, to the Marine Corps
Cecil and I sat next, to each other, since our first days, in grade school, (circa, 1953) at Weiland, Park Elementary, in Columbus, Ohio. We were always, in the same class room, or home room, at Indianola Jr., North, High School. Cecil dropped out, of high school and enlisted, in the Marines, I graduated, in 1964 and enlisted, in the Marines, in the summer, of 1965 and went, to boot camp, 2, months, after hearing of Cecil's death. I will always remember him, as a quite and reserved young man. Cecil was one, of 7, who lived, in the neighborhood and died, in Vietnam.
