I spend six weeks a year working at an archaeological site in South Carolina named Topper. The site is located on the Savannah River in Allendale County. [Secy's note: It is the location of controversial artifacts believed by some archaeologists to indicate human habitation of the New World as much as 50,000 years ago.]
During the last week of my stay, a gent showed up to work at the site and upon his arrival at the campground he offered to "swab" the deck in the picnic shelter. That gave me a clue as to his naval background and we soon discovered our common USNA experience. Bob VanBuren spent the week working in my unit and we had a great time uncovering the past. I thought you and your classmates would enjoy seeing Bob at work. He needed constant supervision, but that was to be expected.

Another mini-micro 18th Company reunion occurred at Molback's Greenhouse and Nursery in Woodinville, east of Seattle, on Monday, 30 June. The Vaughan-Durfee committee met Melinda and Bob Nobbs as they passed through on a quick sweep of the west coast to include a stop in Monroe, WA, to visit Bill Pawlyk, followed by a visit with Bob's cousin in Shelton, WA. The honored emissaries from the East were in great spirits having spent the night at 33K feet and driving a rental car from SeaTac through city traffic to the reunion site. A great time was had by all, although though LuAnn Vaughan and Vivian Durfee were noticeably absent, even with the promise of a shopping spree at the huge nursery.
