  1. This is a wonderful undertaking and is another indication of the fine leadership and management efforts going on at EWU ROTC.
    Missing on the ’59 list is my branch, Corps of Engineers, active (30 years)
    I can think of a few names of people who were commissioned with me in 1959.
    The first is Jaye Evans, Infantry who I served with later in Germany and we were classmates at the Special Warfare School before going to Vietnam. Ron Campbell, James Linton (Cadet Col in 59), Kent Matheson (star of the basketball team) Dick ? Little All American Football player killed in a postwar accident in Korea. I will put my thinking cap on and see who else I can recall.

    Two others in other years who I have information about are –
    Bob Schroeder ’57 or ’58 commissioned Engineer
    Tom Quigley ’69 was commissioned Engineer at served a full career ending up as an )-6

  2. Roy Bernd Col Signal Corps 1956 should be added .
    Tom Talkington Col Signal Corps Active 1958.
    Some of officers listed as Commissioned in 57 were class of 58 with me.
