Crum, Michael Eugene — (8/12/05) I am currently working at Alcon Labs which is headquartered out of Fort Worth TX. I work in the Elkridge MD Distribution Center. As you can see my e-mail is mike.crum@alconlabs.com.

My wife (Sharon) and I just celebrated our 21 wedding anniversary this year. We have two children, Christopher who is heading to Virginia Tech to play baseball for the Hokies. Our daughter Lauren will be a sophomore at Severna Park High School. Laurens sporting interest is field hockey. So not matter what, we are running to either a school event or an athletic event.

Direnzo, Joseph – – E-mail 08/04/00: Am now stationed at Coast Guard Atlantic Area as Executive Assistant to the Chief of Operations. My wife Karen, who picked up O-5 in January is now the Nurse manager at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. Both Joey (11) and Lauren (9) love their new home in Suffolk (its a lot warmer than Maine!) It will also be nice to be on shore duty.
– – E-mail 3/16/99: Joe has his Change of Command on the 28th of May when he will step down from Commanding Officer USCGC JEFFERSON ISLAND, homeported in Portland Maine. He will transfer to San Diego for his next duty station as the Coast Guard Liaison to Commander, Cruiser Destroyer Group One deployed to the Persian Gulf. It will be like coming home, as Joe hasn’t been involved with a carrier battle group since 1986, while still in the Navy.
– – E-mail 12/20/97: Now the Commanding Officer of USCGC JEFFERSON ISLAND, homeported in Portland Maine. He took command on the 3rd of July and has already completed a deployment to the Caribbean on counterdrug ops.

Their children Joey (age 9) and Lauren (age 6 going on 27) love the area, are big into scouts and the YMCA swim team. There is always an open invitation both on the cutter and at the house for any 82 members.

Mabon, Kevin Lee – – E-mail 06/17/00: I got out in 1993 (JO tour Guitarro SD; prototype commando tour; DH tour Stonewall Jackson Charleston) and started a retail specialty toy store called “Imagine That!” in Wenatchee WA (apple country). We sell specialty toys like Brio, Learning Curve, Playmobil as well as funky stuff like rubber chickens. Lots of lessons learned here — but let’s summarize it as retail is a **REALLY** hard profession at which to make a good living. I have also stayed in the reserves and am currently the Training Officer for NR COMSUBPAC Det 320 at Bangor WA. Made the O-5 list this year. I got married to Ann Camp in 1991. Ann is a research scientist with the US Forest Service in Wenatchee. Ann’s daughter Caitlin, 13, is very much a 13 year old who is quite capable of tying up TWO phone lines at once. In August ’99 through January ’00, I was active duty at COMSUBPAC, working as Assistant Training Officer and later as acting N48 (Budget Analyst) (wish my store wrote checks with as many digits as the ones I did at COMSUBPAC!).

Matacotta, Ernest Albert – – 8/12/05: Ernest “Ernie” Matacotta 10th company. Colonel USMC Reserves- assigned as OIC MEPLO FEMA Region IV President/Owner : Pre-employment Screening Services, Inc. Residence: Marietta, GA 770-578-0635

McGrath, Rose Mary – – 4/13/2011–Things are pretty quiet in Carroll County, MD, where I live, and I seldom run across classmates anymore.  I’ve been a high school science teacher for the past eight years, and a mentor to a FIRST robotics team for the past five.  My two boys are involved in robotics, and it had pretty much become my hobby/second job.  Or maybe it’s my main job (without the pay) and I work as a teacher on the side to cover the bills – tough to say.  Anyone who has mentored one of these teams can relate.  It’s kind of addictive, and lots of fun, but I haven’t worked such long hours since I was on active duty.

I was able to get away a couple of retirements in the past few years, and was totally impressed by the careers of Dori (Zink) Freer, Jane (Treadway) Conley and Louis Meier.  I don’t have the pictures handy, and maybe they already sent you some??   I’ve missed a few others, I’m sure, since we’re at that stage.

I expect to see Dori at the FIRST Robotics Championship in St. Louis in two weeks.  She’ll be there with her daughter Kelli’s team from Connecticut.  Kelli will be off to USNA this summer, and I plan  to go for I-Day to see her sworn in.   My oldest is working on becoming some flavor of engineer, starting with the local community college offerings since he isn’t quite focused yet.  The younger one is a junior who applied for USNA summer seminar, so maybe I’ll be going to another I-Day next year.

By the way, I’m supposed to be the 10th CO rep, but the last email sent out for me is wrong.  I would not mind being contacted at my new address (youngrose@comcast.net) for updates.  Teaching and robotics keep me on the run,  but I do get to my home email once in a while.

McGuire, Kevin Wayne – – May he rest in peace

Spoerl, David Ross–12/5/03–I am living in Annapolis and teaching in the Math department at our favorite college.  My wife of 21+ years and I live near the bay bridge.  Our son is a sophomore at Maryland and our daughter is a senior in high school and hopes to be attending Florida Tech in the fall.  I am still working on my phd in Operations research, hopefully I will be done next summer.
