Eight years after the passing of my father, an ROTC comrade my dad had in high school shared with me some observations about my father that further increased my admiration and respect for him. Berwyn's kind description of my dad made him an instant friend:
I see you have posted to Richard Stucki on Family Search. I believe he is the one I went to school with, at South High in 1945. He was Major in the ROTC. Can you verify if this is also your Dad? I also read that he served in Nova Scotia under S. Dilworth Young. I also was there, I guess just after him. I was there in 1950. From the college photo I am pretty sure he is one and the same as I knew at South.
