NOTE: This list is based on personal knowledge, hearsay or "best guess". If you know anyone else in our class who had military service -- or if you know that some of the individuals listed as "Not Vietnam" actually served there -- send me an and I'll add them to the list or make the correction. Be sure to indicate whether the individual to be added to the list served in Vietnam.

As on the In Memoriam page, the ones marked with a (M) are our classmates who attended Monticello with us but who were not in our graduating class. Remember, someone didn't have to have actually graduated with us to be a member of the class of 1963.
