From the 40th reunion:
 
After WJ I went to MJC (now Montgomery College) until the summer of 1968.I did poorly, so I received a draft notice. I enlisted in the Air Force, left my disfunctional and abusive family home in mid-November 1968 for basic training. After tech school on aircraft weapon systems in Denver, CO, I was off to ... well ... the Republic of Vietnam Campaign. Spent 13 months there at a small forward air control base on the Mekong river, then spent the next 2 1/2 years in the Mojave Desert as an aircraft crash rescue fireman, as well as racing sports cars at Riverside Raceway, Ontario Motor Speedway, and other tracks. Interesting change from jungle to desert.
After leaving the USAF I came back to the Denver area, went back to college, and graduated (magna) with a BS in math. While still at school I worked as a student at NOAA in Boulder, CO, learning about radar and lidar (laser radar, basically) data acquisition, control, and digital signal processing. After graduating college in 1976, I went to work for NOAA full time doing more radar, lidar, and other types of remote-sensing research systems. I left NOAA to work for Data General as a systems engineer in 1977, but I missed the research environment and went back to NOAA in 1978, where I stayed until I took an early retirement in 2000.
In the early 1980's I received some national and international recognition for my work, and I have received several patents for the that work. I still do radar/lidar systems engineering and digital signal processing as a consultant to government agencies and private corporations. I spend a lot of time doing music now, also. I play guitar and sing in 4 bands of different genres, mostly folk and folk-rock oriented. I was married in 1983 to Maureen, but we divorced in 1987, no children (we are still good friends, though :o) I married Anita and adopted her three terrific kids (1 early teen, 2 pre-teens) some years ago, and now that the kids are all out on their own, in various universities, etc, Anita and I live alone in the foothills above Boulder, CO, with few neighbors and lots of critters (deer, fox, coyote, bear, mt. lion, etc, etc).

From the 40th reunion:
 
My family moved to Maryland in 1963, just prior to tenth grade, so, like other late arrivals, most people probably don't' know who I was, but here is the brief version of what I've been doing for the past 40 years and who I am.
 
I went to the University of Michigan, graduating in 1970 with a B.A. in psychology.  While there I met my husband, Zachary, who was in law school.  We got married in 1971 and moved to Chicago, living first in Lincoln Park and then in Highland Park. I got a Master's in counseling at Loyola of Chicago and worked in an outpatient program for multipli-handicapped preschoolers at Children's Hospital.  I loved living in Chicago - it is a great city on so many levels, with the exception of the winter weather (November - April!).  Our first child, Jonathan, was born in 1975 in Chicago.  He and his wife, Alissa, live in Brooklyn. Jon is a writer; his first novel, The Geographer's Library, was published in February, 2005.  He does freelance writing and is working on his next book.  We moved to Rockville in 1977, a few months before the birth of our second son, Benjamin.  Benjamin currently lives in Chicago, where he DJ's and writes for a magazine called Stop Smiling.  I try to and go back to Chicago as often as I can to visit Ben and the city.  Our daughter, Rebecca, was born in 1980.  She also lives in Brooklyn - she is getting her master's in museum work at NYU and has an internship this year at the Guggenheim.  From 1975 - 1992 I was a stay-at-home mom, enjoying my children, getting involved in the PTA, and eventually going to graduate school.  In 1992, after 4 ½ years of school, I got a master's degree from the U. of Maryland in early childhood special education.  Since 1992 I have been a preschool special education teacher with MCPS; I now teach at Ashburton ES in Bethesda, which no doubt some of you attended.  I love my job - it's like getting paid for being a mom, extremely rewarding, and I've had the privilege of working with some wonderful colleagues and families.  Zach and I separated in 1996 after 25 years of marriage and divorced in 1997.  Since then I've had a great time finding out who I am, setting my own schedule, working, doing some traveling, spending time with family and friends, dating, not dating, and just enjoying life!  I moved into DC in 1998 and love living in the city (and not being dependent upon my car).
