From Deadman's Trail

Request for Website Input - 26 November 2018

Well it's time once again for your Friendly Webmaster to bug you for providing some input to the Class of '68 website, www.usafa68.org. First of all, I hope you and your family are all doing well and had a nice Thanksgiving and looking forward to the upcoming Holidays. If you send a Christmas letter out over the Holidays - please email me a copy for sharing with your Classmates - you can see past letters here.

Our 50th Reunion was terrific - best attended ever - 644 attended (315 Classmates - 118 more than our 45th). Thanks to Mike and the Committee for the terrific job. I was pleased that the website assisted the Committee and thanks to all who came up to me and thanked me for the website.

Tell me who to tag for the Spotlight. If you have some suggestions, including yourself, send me an email.

The In Memoriam pages on our website receives special attention. For some of our deceased Classmates there is little information on the website - so, if you have information or a story to share, please send it to me. Also, if you learn of the death of a Classmate, please do not assume that it was reported - let the AoG and/or me know.

I'm always looking for pictures of past and present cars - a continuing project is: Car Pictures. Are there more than three Classmates out there that still have the car that they had at graduation? What is your ride now - email me a picture?

The website has nearly unlimited storage for stories, documents and photos. I can, and have scanned, posted and returned documents, pictures, 35mm mounted slides and 35mm negatives.

Remember, our Scribe, Tim Davidson's, Checkpoints Class News, is posted as soon as he submits it for publication.

If you're on Facebook and not one of the 147 of us that are members of the "Secret" USAFA68 Group on Facebook, consider joining (send me an email), more information is here.

Secret: These groups cannot be found in searches, and non-members can’t see anything about the group, including its name and member list. The name of the group will not display on the profiles (timelines) of members. To join a secret group, you need to be added by a member of the group.

Nita and I are looking forward to being with family and friends over the Holidays - hope you are too.

Pat Russell
USAFA68 Webmaster
