    Ryan was one of my students in U S Constitution 00-01 class. He was also quite a 'card' on the 4 bus loaded with seniors Disneyland trip. He sat at the rear of the bus with a bunch of other guys who had enlisted and were reading a bunch of gun magazines Matt Syzmestic (Sheriff's Deputy) and I had brought along. (Matt sat in back with these guys [​IMG]) Ryan told me, "Coach I'm gonna kick ass and come back and tell you war storiies."
    I cried last night and just managed to write this after I had a good talk with Col Bill Henson who was the ROTC Cdr at the time.
