I was leaving the AF in 1971 and doing the job search. I had a call from an insurance company inquiring if I had any interest in that business. The caller was nice and impressive, but I had no interest in getting into insurance.

He told me that he had been an assistant coach at Wichita State and decided to leave coaching after the 1969 season. He lost a lot of friends and likely would have been killed in the crash if he had stayed at WS.

We talked a long time, and I could tell that plane crash was really troubling him. We never talked again.

Greenville News had a picture of the wreckage with a bloody helmet. I believe the Marshall crash was the same year, with everyone killed in that crash.

My dad and I went to the Marshall Game on Nov 7th, and the cheerleaders were asking for donations for Wichita State. The following Saturday, the Marshall plane went down.

Three kids in my class lost one or both parents. My parents lost friends. My sister lost friends. The head coach was a neighbor. That was tough.
