Class Memories From 1977

In my senior year I barely went to the school. I was involved in the NYC Executive Intern Program, therefore, because of the program I trained as an Nuclear Medicine technician at Kings County Medical Center from September until I graduated in January 1977. In my junior year I was part of a little clique that every day after school would either walk, take the bus or train to south Brooklyn. In that group that I recalled was a very short girl I think her name was Milagros (Millie),Jeannette Colon, Another pretty female I can't remember her name but who appeared Italian looking but was actually Puerto Rican, this tall and skinny male I think his name was Frankie. They were good friends, I lost contact when I graduated and entered the Marines. I actually wrote to Jeannette Colon while at MCRD South Carolina, Marine Boot Camp. She wrote once and I never heard from her. Many years later I asked my twin brother who at that time was a Police Officer with the anti-crime unit in Brooklyn if he have seen or heard of my old friends, he stated that Jeannette Colon became a Police Officer but have not heard from the rest. Either way I wish them all God's many blessings.

After school we used to walk down to this eatery that was called BONONZA...I think it was before we got to 6th Ave...

I remember Mr. Carbanero (coached almost all the sporting events) who actually I think disliked me, walked around with a short hair cut with a flat top (like a Marine)and was well physically build. I guess he thought I was just some smart street kid who will amount to nothing. I was on temporary assignment to the Brooklyn Marine recruiting office when I returned from two years in the Philippines. At that time I had only two strips (Cpl E-4). I visited John Jay and ran in the aforementioned teacher Mr. C who came up to me strongly (I returned the favor) shook my hand and while doing so smiled and said "You look good" I snapped to attention and said, " Thank you sir for all you have done for this grateful Marine". I remember seeing his eyes watered up and he walked off. I was really moved.
