This section lists the major events that occurred during our high school years, which ultimately had an impact on our lives.

From the tragic assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy, to the quagmire of the Viet Nam War, to Woodstock, to the Apollo moon landing, to the hot muscle cars of the late 1960's to the Arab Oil Embargo, we endured a roller coaster ride not seen by many people our age since World War II.

So take a few minutes and bring yourself back to those tumultuous years and remember the highs and lows that made us the survivors we are today.
