Really? Cool? Including Tony in his overalls? Overalls just scream cool don't they? Ok, i know, i'm making fun of a change in times...as you can see from all the other people in those pictures wearing overalls, it was just the thing to do...go through them...see how many guys are wearing them...go ahead....I'll wait....

Cool to see those pics again...those were the first MAHS pics I ever received via email waaaaaay back in the late 90s when you first made contact.

I marvel at your forethought for bringing a camera!! I took photography that year and didn't think to bring one!

Mr. Bill,
The leather hats are really cool, I like overalls and the long hair.But actually I can not see anyone wearing overalls.Where are the overalls?Carrying your womans purse is cool because it is brave and sweet, and anyway maybe it is I who is not cool since I think it is cool. It is the old hippy part of me wanting to come out.

you don't have to tell ME about the hippie trying to get out...I feel like I've he's been trying to get out for decades in my case.

And I like the leather hats too...I really like hats and always wish I could wear one...however, putting a hat on the pumpkin head I've got makes me look like...well...like a pumpkinhead with a hat on. It's not pretty. Believe me, if I had thought for a second...a SECOND...that I could pull off a leather hat, there'd be one more in those pics.

Tony is wearing overalls. Trust me. Look closely.

And I doubt I was carrying my girlfriend's bag to be sweet but rather simply to have some place to carry my manhood. I'm sure I got to carry it around sometimes so I'd feel better. Just a guess.

Mr. Bill,
I am not sure I understand what you mean about carrying your manhood around. It is probably a guy thing and let`s face it some things are not meant for me to understand :lol:

About those photos though...

Nr. 1- Is that you and Tony on the bridge and do I see overalls there? Who is that in red sports jacket?
Nr.3-Guys at harbour, will you name them for me?
Nr.4-girl on right in the ice cream picture. Who is that?

Overalls had their place that year...didn't Brad Pitt wear overalls in Thelma and Louise? Yeah, I'm pretty sure he did, I was just way ahead of my time. I was just prepping Mr. Bill for what his next few years of living in Pulaski, VA might be like...and the Mighty Gopher baseball cap...the one thing from Grand Prairie, TX that was never far from me. Alas, the overalls are long gone...but the Gopher cap is still in my closet. I should have brought that to DC for one of the history tables!

Mr. Bill's long hair was a failed attempt to keep that gourd-head undercover for the sake of us all!

Did Brad wear overalls? Like I said I like the overalls look.
I wore overalls 8 years ago while pregnant. I reminded myself of another famous person. Hardy from " Laurel and Hardy" I just didn´t have the moustache.

Mr. Bill::

My father bought me a camera for graduation. No lessons came with it so I am lucky the pictures came out. Pentax Me Super...I still have it. Yes, you were on of my first contacts when I started looking for folks. As a matter of fact Tony, Ray Houle, Alison Kovalchik and John Jensen are on that list too.

Carolyn:

I have added names to the pictures. Hope I got the spellings right.

Larry Matthynssens had two sisters, Chris and Sylvia, that lived in Perlacher but opted to go to the German school system. Chris would have been an '82 grad and Sylvia an '84 grad, I believe. You may remember them. Larry is in Florida and the sisters are in the Dallas area, the last I heard.

How did you guys get away with the long hair on a military installation? I always wondered about that. Did any of the military guys give you crap about your hippie hair? My dad would have cracked me for having what he would call "girl's hair." ;-)

I can't speak for the other guys, but I remember being called a "long-hair" by one or two of the military guys -- though not maliciously I don't think, and the MPs did stop me once or twice...but all in all, no one ever gave me any crap about it that wasn't good-natured crap...or that I didn't take as good-natured crap...who knows what they were really thinking.

However, it was late 70s/early 80s...it was a bit more common then probably...I guessing anyway.

Moose:

My dad was a 1st Sergeant and I always had the high and tight haircuts. However, I asked him my senior to allow me to grow it out....and he did as long as it was washed and combed every day. He also made me get it cut the day after the graduation party. Back to a more respectful length. Those were the days.

Mr. Bill - whose hair was longerin 1982? Yours or Skip Hauge's. You two were pretty close.

D'82

Probably about the same. Different kind of hair. His was straight and long, mine was thick and long...mine resembled more of a tumbleweed. I always liked Skip's hair, it looked like it was a lot easier to deal with than my mop.
