You from Macon GeoW?

i lived in Macon but other side of town, Willingham high school district. then came busing... we moved to next county in 1970.

this is a Virginia school ring , closed 50 yrs ago.

For those on here Sidney Lanier High school was in Macon Ga. , Lanier poets, were many times state champs football. the old original ROTC high school in Macon. His house is within site, a block away, now a museum . Of course in 1970s they changed the names due to political correctness, he was a Confederate Officer, and it was moved and later renamed to Central High school. many guys i worked with and older family went there. i have some recovered collar tabs, one of which was the Torch collar tab, very neat looking for ROTC. many went on to the wars. many died. its a doctors building now, but they did leave his name on front. He wrote the famous poem the Marshes of Glenn, Glenn county Ga at Brunswick. I have been there, a coastal marsh on the Atlantic.

many Viet vets i worked on the Macon Police Dept with went there. i listened to them play football on the radio and saw some of the older guys before i worked with them when they played for Lanier/Central, some were in the transition. The Golden Boots Army ROTC drill team was perennial national Champions. The commander was later a councilman and mayor. The cadet Commander in my time is a prominent prosecutor of Impeccable character. a real fireball. they came to my school to teach us Airforce ROTC to learn to march. i changed schools again from Northside Warner Robins to Peach County and they did not have ROTC so never went in. In 1975 post Vietnam they were tossing folks out after 4 yrs. old friends from Northside that went in, most never got to stay, and they were mainly career military families. a reduction in force-RIF- got most of them.

still looking at return info on ring. may take a while

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
