Hiya! Even though I saw most of my graduating class at our 20th year reunion, I was saddened tae find that Sandra Downs wasnt there! I enjoyed seeing everyone, however, I was really hoping tae see Sandra. I keep checking back at Snowhawk's page, but her name isnt listed. I know her name is posted on the "Classmates.com" site, however, they dinnae take our Visa card, as it's in pounds instead of dollars. Go figure, eh? Does anyone know her email address, her snail mail address, or anything else about her? Her sister graduated a year behind us, Karen Downs. If anyone has any information on either of them, I'd be more than appreciative of it. By the way, my email has changed from what is posted in the Reunion Book that we got: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a ton,

It's Mike Reed (class of 94). I'm no longer on the Cushing, but am still in Japan. I just started a 3 year duty working at the base Brig (prison). I'll have 9 years here when I leave in 2004. Hopefully I'll be getting out of the Navy then and following a music career. I've completed my second self produced CD and some of them are circulating in Owasso and here. I'm trying to get picked up and get paid for it. If anybody knows somebody who knows somebody let me know. I don't know anybody.
I can be reached at this email (C1510K@cfay.navy.mil) or email@example.com
