The Internet provides many opportunities to get in touch with old friends. The Overseas Brats website has a guestbook for observations and a memorial page for those who have died in the service of our country. Our own Doug Doody, LAHS ?62 is included on that page. The Classmates website offers a registry for all schools. Military Brats Registry has a registry for schools and military bases. All of these are helpful for locating friends from the past.
Harry Heflin has recently added new listings to the Alumni Directory . He is now including the names of our classmates who have died, their birth and death years, along with short comments. If you have information about anyone who should be included, please notify Harry Heflin. This is a ?work in progress? so not all are listed yet.
In the works are listings of all who have attended LAHS, even those we are still looking for. George Partn is working on this.
