Message Forum

Welcome to the Woodland High School Message Forum.

The message forum is an ongoing dialogue between classmates. There are no items, topics, subtopics, etc.

Forums work when people participate - so don't be bashful.  But be respectful.  This may seem like a private chat room, but 800 of your classmates have access to it (and ~two dozen of your former teachers), and many more read than participate.  

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  Access and participation on this forum is not a right, it is a privilege and abuse may result in suspension or revocation of WHS60s site access at any time.  Abuse includes but is not limited to offensive, demeaning, excessive or nonsensical posts, badgering, foul language, etc.  The forum is not a place to disparage others, especially deceased classmates.  The website was continued after the reunion for the enjoyment of the members.  They shouldn't be subjected to annoying posts when they come to the Message Forum.  Just remember the sand box rules.

I do not actively monitor the forum, but do respond to complaints (please use the Contact Us link in the left panel) and I will take action as appropriate.

Hi Elvis

I should have posted that Dad is perched on a FOLKE-WULF 190 (I think?) German fighter that was at the Berlin Airport shot up during the fall of Germany - Dad, who was stationed there got to go thru all the broken planes, he brought back many souvenirs of those planes and lots of pix

Thank you all for the memory of all the Veterans, past and present.  May we pray that a war is not within our future for us.   Great memories posted to this day.

Greg, the airplane is a Focke Wulf Fw-190, most likely an Fw-190 A but possibly an Fw-190 F.

Before Veterans Day slips away, I want to say God bless my old friend Mike Miller and everyone else who put their ____ on the line in Viet Nam. After receiving a low draft number, I enlisted and served in the U.S Navy with the singular intention of avoiding the infantry. Due to some fortuitous health issues at the time, I never left San Diego and spent my days as an office clerk. My older brother David Childers should be added to the list of veterans (65-66'). He saw Viet Nam from the deck of the troop transport, USS Renville. The only time I set foot on a ship was when they pulled into port and I dropped by for a visit with Dave. Ah, the twists and turns of life. One can "go with the flow" or "keep running against the wind." I'm not sure it makes any difference in the end.

John Eaton:  Love the pictures of the World War II Planes.  Those Airforce pilots had no heaters or any comforts in those planes, as they flew overseas.  I watched a Channel 6 special on those men.  Nothing like the planes today.   Just amazing they were able to do their duties.

Craig Mayfield (1966)

LOL...There's Ol' Monte...Betcha you're a Judge "Cowboy Roy" supporter...still the same

Jim Moore (1963)

I agree Monte

Craig Mayfield (1966)

Hmmm...maybe that old hypocrite perv will get a Senate seat...

Paul Schattauer (1961)

I do not know whether these creeps and pervs are guilty but I believe they are.  We have known people who like themselves so much that they have no idea how many people don't agree  and that their actions are unwanted and offensive.  Abuse of subordinates should be punished; force or violence should be prosecuted. The human condition will remain but we can be better.  Monte, Craig has been asked by many posters to ease up on the pointless posts and the political attacks. He refuses. He seems to like the conflict.  All of us have a point of view, none of us have the moral high ground..  Especially Craig and I.

Craig Mayfield (1966)

You and I agree Paul...the First Stone thing...but...there is the political "Here and Now"...Why is this "Now" relevent?...One Guess

11/20/17 09:53 PM #5717    


Paul Schattauer (1961)

Nothing is  "here and now". Politics is as always fluid and not very transparent.  It is raining shoes and dissapointment and hope are everywhere.  As a distraction Angela is not having a good day.  We shouldn't choose up sides here as it is much to partisan and too complicated.  Just a note, I was in Woodland last week with my wife on our way to Tahoe where we we were married 41 years ago.  Had dinner with a classmate and his wife at Kitchen 428.  A truely grand evening.  My great grandmother lived in that building in the 50s.  Woodland looked great, even better than I remember.  Collede is a 2 way street again :).  Tahoe was beautiful, we took a photo tour and recorded lots of memories.  Harrah's where we spent our wedding night was still very nice but kinda reminded me of that old country song by Tanya Tucker "Delta Dawn"......juat a faded rose of days gone by......

I liken this forum to my favorite car in college, a  deep blue 1957 Ford Fairlane that I bought from Charlie Kelley.  The car had only one problem.  It had an annoying squeak in the dash.  Never did get rid of that squeak. Sound familiar?    Hmmm!
