My Square Dance Partner

Richard Champ Clark was my square dance partner in the third, fourth, and fifth grades at McCarver Elementary School in Tacoma, WA. I did not graduate with that class at Stadium because I moved to California. I was very sad when I learned that he was missing in Vietnam, but am pleased that he has been found. I remember him well.
