    Dear Editor,

    Cherokee County appears to still be the relatively innocent community I
    remember and loved, if the activities of this guy, Palmer, from Crestline, represents what amounts to a local crime wave.

    You, Sir, don’t know or know of me. FYI: I was graduated from GHS in 1958. Went away to college, Pittsburg (where I studied for two years), but was graduated from the Univ. of Kansas in 1965. Served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia, West Africa, 1962-4. Was commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army in 1965 via the R.O.T.C. program at K.U. While flying a helicopter my 2nd tour in Viet-Nam (22 Jan., 1970) my OH-6 was virtually dismantled in the air during an engagement with North Vietnamese infantry & I took an AK round through the sunvisor of my flight helmet. As a consequence of my wound, I was retired in my then rank of captain. If nothing else, I’m living proof that only the good die young. For the past 45 years I’ve lived on a secluded 5 acres near Colorado Springs. Have the dubious distinction to be not only one of the 153K Americans seriously WIA during the Second Indochina War, but also one of the 23,214 Americans to have been determined to be 100% permanently disabled owing to our wounds in the war.
