Some came home and some did not
Ecclesiastes 9:11 I have turned so as to see under the sun, that not to the swift is the race, nor to the mighty the battle, nor even to the wise bread, nor even to the intelligent wealth, nor even to the skilful grace, for time and chance happen with hem all.
This is the Saxaphone section of the Casper Wyoming High School Class of 1937. My friend Bill is bottom row, second from the right. His friend under the mark went to sleep on the U.S.Arizona on December 6th, 1941 and still lies entombed there today. His name is on the wall above the ship. W.L. Bill Watson.
Each year we honor those who came back, and those who did not, and that is what I am doing as you read. God bless their sacrifice.
