Mother remarries a Yankee. Reluctantly moved to Hawaii in 1957. Very reluctantly enrolled at Kailua Intermediate, set back one year due to differences between Japan and US school year. This automatically made me a year older than all of you. Somehow moved up the grades without speaking English, thanx to people like Quadra Murakami, Pat Tashiro, Kenneth Inn, Alan Yap, Preston Pahia. Mike Lee and host of other well meaning but obviously misguided people. Somehow graduated with all of you. I attend reunion only to thank these people. Otherwise I was always miserable while at KHS.
Entered UH in 1963 by copying entrance exam answers from Mike Lee's (he was not aware). Somehow graduated in 1968, gaining another year over all of you.
Married Ginny and joined USAF to escape the draft upon graduation from UH. Wasted 4 years but had lots of fun.
Joined Duty Free Shoppers upon discharge. The Japanese were just beginning to overrun Hawaii.
Never learned to take BS or play politics so changed jobs 14 times since (but worked for two of them twice each). Must work till I die because I never saved.......
Ha! "Retirement" at last in 2014. 15 years behind schedule, but then, better late than ever?

"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes."
