REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering "Motoring Mike" Baldwin

    Posted on 7/11/99 - by Thom Woodward woodward@cloudnet.com
    Mike Baldwin was a fun-loving guy. We played high school football together; he was a tackle -- not the most talented physically but always eager to get in a few licks. Mike also enjoyed cars -- he had a '55 or '56 Chevy, as I recall. He wrote a teriffic column in "The Lamp," our high school paper, about hotrods. Mike could be heard "motoring" around the high school corridors, making sounds with his mouth: racing the motor, shifting gears, pealing tires as he turned a corner (often right into a teacher). I expect he's racing around heaven today, driving St. Peter crazy with all the noise.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
