Re: Vicki Hawes—When I returned home from Korea and arrived in
Oakland Army base for discharge, my first collect phone call to my
parents was assisted by Vicki Hawes. Although we were six years out
of Covina High, Vicki remembered my voice and said, "How are you doing
Dane and welcome home!" She was a directory assistant and living in
the Oakland area then, in December 1974.
We Colts get around.
—Sorry, Dane Haas will be on a European vacation visiting
