MARCH, 1951: MEMORIES OF OUR WASHINGTON TRIP WHERE IF FELL IN LOVE WITH MY CLASSMATE

It was March, 1951; time for our class trip to Washington in 2 buses. I was on bus 1 and as luck would have it, the girl of my dreams was on bus 2. I'll never forget that day when we stopped at the Luray Caverns and explored Mother Nature's incredible underground display. It was here that I fell in love with Judy Britton. She had on a very stunning navy blue suit, and was movie star pretty. I will never forget the thrill and electricity that surged through me as we walked hand in had in those dark caverns. Here's a pleasant memory of my classmates that I scanned from a 1950 "CRITERION" which I received from Bob Oliver HHS '50.

I remember the Washington trip. I almost didn't go so I was on the last bus. I remember that we visited the F.B.I headquarters and I was so impressed that I wanted to join but you needed a law degree so I joined the Air force instead and by the time I got my masters thru the G.I Bill I was too old. I had a lot of fun on that bus. John Amman and Bob Gallos were on that trip and later we met in Japan. Amman was a cop and Gallos worked as a clerk in General Mcaurthers building in Tokyo. Small world.Great memories.
