School Story:

I attended CB only my Senior year. Played soccer and made some fantastic friends, At the end of the soccer season, I knew I was heading for the Air Force Boot Camp, so I had a party at our house in Jamison. All the players and their dates were invited. I think we had lots of fun. Problem was, I was one of the few who forgot to invite a female companion. One of my friends, Fred Rieben brought a beautiful junior class girl from Jamison. By the end of the night I made my moves to get to know her. Next day I asked Fred about their relationship, and his answer was: "Just know here and asked her out". Two years later, January 2, 1965 I made her my wife. Marilyn Flack Fischer and I celebrated out 55th year of bliss. Recently, I made an effort to find Fred Rieben and with the help from my friends at the Alphabet Soup Company in DC, I found Fred down Under. Single again with a daughter. His goal in life is to change the Australian Flag to include the Aboriginal People. I guess CB taught all of us right and we should be proud of what we have become.

Happy Birthday, Barbara. It appears that many of us lost touch with our dear friends from CB. We are the first generation that were not afraid to leave the roost and travel the world. When we finally retire, at least that is what they call it, some of us come home again while others seek new places more soothing to our needs. Marilyn and I settled down in Delaware. I scored extra points for that since she always loved being near the water. Let's stay and touch and exchange our life's stories.

Robert (Doug), I had to look for your photo in the yearbook to remember you. I only spent one year, my senior year, at CB. I remember all the faces, but names slipped my mind many years ago. You certainly have made a name for yourself. Your family is to be commended for all they have achieved.
I cannot complain about my life, even though my wife Marily (Flack - CB1964) would tell you different. We have three sons, but they are all involved in their work, families and living life to the best. Upon graduation, I took a short vacation back to my birthplace in Germany. Upon my arrival back in the USA, I enlisted in the US Air Force. I spent six years flying with the Hurricane Hunters and then went on to Chantilly, Virginia to one of the government's alphabet soup companies. My story was 367 pages long but the brass at the agency did not think that my memoirs were suitable for adult readers. So, I went back to civilian life and became a chef. Finally retired in 2005 and moved to a permanent home in Delaware.
It has been a pleasure to write to you and say "Hello" again. Take care and stay healthy.
Your classmate Wolf-Ruediger Fischer - just call me Rudi.

Just like me to be always late for everything. Happy belated Birthday, Parmelee. We also live just a stone's throw from you and really close to Ron Moritz, in Delaware.

Jim, it has been a long, long time since we met each other at CB. I just looked at your comments and I am very impressed with your life. I think when we were in CB, we, you nor I, would imagine what the world had in story for us. Lieutenant Commander (I am not so sure what that was in our end of the service, US Air Force) After CB, I went and enlisted. After basics and Tech School, my first assignment was 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, The Hurricane Hunters. I did a tour in the Pacific during Operation Arclight and switched from the WB-47E Stratojet to the WB-57F Night Intruder. You worked on nuclear power plants and I flew through nuclear blasts in China. I was pulled out of the USAF after 6 years and send to Washington DC to work for Lyndon Johnson, then on to Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and finally Ronald Reagan. Reagan fired me just one year from retirement. My civilian life was just as good but a slight bit more nuts. Marilyn and I now live in Rehoboth, Delaware and love it here. I am glad I found you again. To many of our classmates have gone on, but we are hanging in there. WB-47E Ramey AFB, Puerto Rico, My 4th man position behind the Navigator (Notice Aps-64 Radar) The white tubes are part of my 'Sniffer Station' for nuclear testing.

I'm always late to these occasions, so I wanted to be early this year. Happy Birthday Rita. It seems that we had one teacher that we both could agree on. Mr. Cioci was a fantastic person but mostly a great teacher.

Notice that all the nice things said about you came in 2016. And then you went underground again. What did we all do to you that you must hide? I communicated with your daughter. She seemed very nice. At least she answered back. If I live long enough, I may show up on your doorsteps. My next trip is back to the place of my birth, Germany. I finally found my family and I want to find out how they lived. Two were doctors, one was a pilot in the Luftwaffe and a writer (about airplanes and war). He even made a movie about it after the war was over. Enough about me. Let us hear from you - again. We all miss you.

Mike, isn't that always the way. If you plan then everything you do is not what you wanted. I also went to Lackland, then to Keesler AFB. Because of my German education especially in electronics, I had to stay at Keesler for one year for Airborne Radar and Navigation. My first permanent base was Hunter AFB, Savannah, Georgia. My unit was the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, the Hurricane Hunters. I was fourth man out of a five-man crew. Pilot, Co-Pilot, Navigator, Sniffer Operator and crew chief. I was the sniffer. Most of my rides were boring. Once in a while they would send us to Nevada. That is were I did my thing. When the atomic bombs were detonated, I sprang into action and sniffed the atomic cloud so we could get information about atomic blast sizing and ground zero damage. This was all practice for my 5th and 6th year in the USAF.
The best thing I liked was all the bullshit the officers created because they were better than us enlisted. My so-called stepdad, made sure that the 9 years I lived with him, I became a military expert because he made sure I had nine years of basic training.
Have to sit down to a couple of brews and exchange some info.
Take care.
Rudi
