    I remember hearing you on the radio in Utica, NY. I was stationed at Griffiss AFB in Rome, NY while serving during the Vietnam War from 1971 to 1974. I attended Mohawk Valley Community College from 1974 to 1976. I then returned to San Diego to finish my education and take care of my aging parents.

    I remember attending minor league baseball and hockey games in the area.

    San Diego is a beautiful place but the Mohawk Valley has its charms as well. I met some wonderful people while I lived there. I have been back a couple of times to visit but being a San Diego native, my heart is here.
