Mike went to Post then Cooley then transfered to Mumford.
He was a member of the ROTC
Let me comment on my friend Mike. I attended a birtday party of his many many years ago. His dad took a small group of us to see "Twelve Angry Men" so it must have been around 1957. We had cake at his modest home, it may have been an apartment. I remember that he had acomplete set of an encyclopedia, but more than that, for the first time, based on his home, it occurred to me that some people did not have the priviliges I enjoyed and, of course, took for granted. RIP Mike
Looked in our yearbook and found Michael was active and is pictured in the Mumford ROTC photo.
