As you may recall, I left the class during the 1946-47 year to join the Air Force. After taking the GED test, I was invited back for the class graduation ceremonies. Due to the late invitations, I arrived in Mangum without having a cap and gown. Thanks to Wilbanks Smith, I graduated with the class using his cap and gown as he chose to remain at home with a very bad case of mumps. Looking forward to seeing you.
