When Jack Brummett called me, I almost fell out of my chair. As we both just hit over 90, he had to bring it up to me.
I went to Burdine School, Jack went to Jenkins. When I went to Jenkins School, we played some sports together. He was great in all sports.
We both went into the military about the same time. His training was long and hard to become an officer. I was put into Air Sea Rescue training in Virginia to guard the eastern United States in small planes. I later was flying into the dew line in Canada.
We learned later that we were on the same base at the same time, but never knew we were.
Jack, it was so good to hear from you again.
