My parents dropped me off at Norwich in August 1960 on their return trip to Maryland after visiting relatives in New Brunswick, Canada. While in Canada, I came down with a severe case of the "grip" resulting in a high fever, etc. I spent my first week at Norwich in the Ainsworth Infirmary.

When I was released, I was told to report to Capt. McNulty, CO of Delta Company. On my way down to Delta Company I saw all these new cadets on the upper parade ground with no hair, doing push-ups, close order drilling and being yelled at. My first impression was "what did they do wrong"". Then I reported to Capt. McNulty. He was conducting a meeting with his senior cadet sergeants . I introduced myself and said I was looking for Capt. McNutly, I didn't salute or refer to him as sir. 1stSGT Larson corrected me on the spot about the correct pronunciation of Capt. McNulty's name and the respect I owed by always referring to him as Sir and salute. SGT Larson said I was a full week behind in ROOK indoctrination. I remember saying "what is a ROOK". You are going to find out he said emphatically.

It was then I got this sinking feeling of being in deep do-do.
 
I was majoring in Mechanical Engineering and had to stay focused on my studies. The M.E. professorial staff was very good. Every waking minute of the day was accounted for, from morning calling, fall-out formations and personal inspections, mess-hall, classes, ROTC, study hours, SMI, shining shoes, polishing brass and cleaning my M-1 to lights out. I grew up fast learning the importance of responsibility, accountability and living with the Honor Code in all my personal actions. Being from Maryland, I signed up for Mountain and Cold Weather to learn how to ski and mountain climb. M&CW enhanced my confidence and I will always remember Sgt. Herlihy for his wonderful tutoring. I made Dean's List in my ROOK year. and earned Corporal rank going into my sophomore year. Norwich had a profound impact on me that ROOK year and that's why the spirit of "Be all you can be" carried forward in my life.
 
Cheers

I can vaguely recall an earth tremor our Sophomore year. I looked across the parade ground (no trees at that time). I saw, I think, a Freshman jump from 2nd story. Duck Mendal?

Chuck Glazerman 

Present and still holding down the southwest Ohio flank better known as Bengals country (Perhaps next year).

In good health and Covid-free. Remain active playing keyboard in two local music projects - Cincinnati Conservatory of Music’s (CCM/UC) Adult Jazz program and “Retroactive Band,” a local five-member pop cover band. Lots of fun while keeping the brain cells active and strong. All started back at Norwich with Jimmy Tatko and "The Jaguars.” Recall we were one of the first house bands at the Blue Tooth in Sugarbush. Those were the days trying to look “cool" in the Beatles’ era with our short cadet haircuts. LOL.

Regards Bob and Earl

Jay Kotlen -- Not too much has changed here. My wife Sue, and I are still realtors with Coldwell Banker in Trumbull, CT and have referred many of our classmates to reliable CB realtors in their home moves.

I still play golf in the warmer weather and try to stay away from INDOOR eating at restaurants during COVID (hopefully this year will ease off so we can get back to a more normal existence - playing poker 2-3 times/week (masking now while we play).

Hope everyone stays well!!!!!

Good to hear from both of you. Glad to see this new tradition continues on for another year. Now that medical issues seem to monopolize conversations, it is great to receive your memo to stimulate old memories. We have an "old-timers" group of alumni that meets for lunch monthly. After all these years it is great to have this bond with our classmates, our alumni, and our school.

Well done guys for keeping the ROLL CALL going.

I keep an unofficial record of our passed classmates. In my list I have a record of the passing of John A. Van Lund on 9-5-21. Maybe a check with the school would be in order.

I have no special memories to recall for you. However, please tell our classmates to stop and visit with Dottie and myself. 

Peace and God Bless!

John Manchester checking in as present. Katie and I are aging gracefully in both Hanover NH and Sarasota FL.

I was glad to see that the roll call was dedicated to my first Norwich roommate, JD McBain. John McBain was probably the most famous riderless Norwich Horseman at Sabine field at halftime on Homecoming weekend in 1962. His equestrian skills were on full display for the entire corp and visiting dignitaries. 

Our 64 Homecoming golf at Sugarbush has dwindled to four remaining stalwarts of Crotch,Capone, Charlie and Me.!! Hope to see more of you guys at the "Bush" this  Fall??

Present. 50 years ago I purchased a house in the countryside of upstate NY. About a third of a mile down the road was a house that needed many repairs (it was leaning to one side). Several years after moving into our house we noticed that the run-down county house was being repaired and brought back to life.

Several years after that we found out that the occupants had a connection with Norwich. The homeowners were Dave and Joan Hicks. DAVE HICKS - yes I remember him - back in 1960 we all knew him as Captain Hicks  (Norwich class of ’51) - he was bringing his home (circa 1793) into the 20th Century. We have enjoyed being neighbors and friends.

Sadly this last year Dave passed away. We will miss going to hockey games and Norwich Send Offs with him.

The Class of ’64 Memorial Roll Call initiative has had an impact on documenting the historical legacy of our class. 

Each of us shared a 4-year common experience in the early ’60’s, framed by the Cuban missile crisis, MG Ernest N. Harmon’s tenure, the assassination of President Kennedy, the outbreak of the War In Viet Nam, the introduction of the Great Society and the beginning of the Viet Nam era.

This annual tradition has increased connectivity among classmates, been featured as an example for
other classes to follow, and is serving to demonstrate the importance of recognizing the contributions made by older classes. As an example, the recently created Luzzi Brothers Scholarship in Engineering, honoring Joe ’64 and his late brothers, John ’63 and Jim ’67, serves as a testament to one family’s dedication to Norwich.

Continue the march...

PRESENT

Love the idea, and look forward to responses.

Driving to Vermont to our winter ski home in Warren, Sugarbush, I jotted some notes, arranged into 2 thoughts: People and Places. Remember, I am a retired professor from WVU, West Virginia University, School of Medicine. I can’t help myself. 

People.
Gary Close, Reverend, my closest friend. Zoobies, together. In old, old Jackman Hall. Long discussions about science and God. On the way back from representing Vermont at JFKs inauguration in DC. Damn cold. Pop Bryan. And Mrs. Vivian. Norwich Librarian, eventually VT State Librarian. Mother to a lot of us. I was so fortunate to have Pop Bryan, stones and all, as my Advisor. I spent so many nights at their home. Home cooking, Sunday football, playing with their 2 sons, Shawn and Mike. And when playing tennis, broke his finger.

Places.
Jackman Hall. The wind in winter would blow out a candle in a corner room, shared with Ed Betterly. He was part of my wedding in Woodstock, 1972. 50 years ago. And still going strong with Penny, by the way. We had water buckets for fire. Are you kidding. In each room. SMI would check to see if filled properly. Never. Walk!!! I loved the place. Still do!!! I have my saber. With my name. Hopefully, in the future I can pass it to a grandson. 

Ski hill across the road. Original rope tow, as I would hang that heavy rope on the poles. Only went up halfway, then. But fun.
