Class of 1968
I am just getting things together to
build up this page. I have a couple of pics below of my son and when I was in Viet
Nam. My bio is coming next. In the meantime, here is my email address linked
below, if you would like to get in touch or just say "hi"
First of all, I would like to thank
Cathy and Sean very much for all that they are doing for this VHHS Website. It is so nice
to be able to keep in touch with our fellow classmates and sadly, also to keep informed as
to who has passed-on.
Okay, here's my story in a
The opening picture of me on my
site was taken when I was fifteen (15 yrs.old). Right out of summer camp (1965) from the
U.S.M.C. teenage sort of boot camp called the "Devil-Pups". Actually it was to
get me in shape for the following Varsity Football season.
After Verdugo, I went into the
U.S.M.C. and was sent immediately to Viet-Nam; My duties were to be assigned to the fire
direction control (FDC) unit at an artillery base by the name of "The Rockpile".
After Viet-Nam, I was stationed in
Okinawa. The Marines finding out I had an Amateur Radio License--transferred me into what
is called the Mars System (military affiliate radio system) where my duties were sending
telegrams (marsgrams) from and to the states and to other various locations where the
Marines were stationed. (ie. Philipines, Guam, Japan, Vietnam and Hawaii). I did this
along with setting up and running phone-patches (phone-calls) from Okinawa to the United
States. I did this duty in the M.A.R.S. system in Okinawa for a total of twenty (20)
months to return to Camp Pendleton in June of 1971 to complete my service of three years
in the U.S.M.C.
I have had a number of jobs in the
electronics field ranging from Electronic Assembly, Quality Control/Quality Assurance
Representative, Electronic Inspection, and Performance Testing. Since almost all of the
aerospace industry has left California, I have only been able to find misc. jobs but
Due to some unfortunate accidents,
I am leaning on my father for assistance until I can get back on my feet.
Being an old surfer, I will
occassionaly see Al Gee at San Onofre where we both go surfing, when time permits. I have
been surfing now since 1962 and seem to still be in a long board rut (10 foot board).
Other than all of the above, I love
spending time with my son William-Kyle which will be seven in Sept of this year (1999).
Well, that just about summerizes my
life since VHHS.
Anyone who'd like to keep-in-touch,
here are my addresses:
Bill C. Fesler 9660 Crystal View
Drive Tujunga, CA. 91042
My email is listed above.
I am looking forward to the next
reunion and I hope to see you all there.
