I am James P Ramon, a graduate of the Phillipine Military Academy Class of 1962. Sometime during the mid 60's, I met a peace corps volunteer named Sally Googins in Talavera(our town), Nueva Ecija, Philippines through my youngest sister name Editha. Sally is a good swimmer, this I observed once when I invited her to the annual reunion of the Field Artillery(my branch of service in the Armed Forces of the Philippines). I am seeking help on how I can get in touch with Sally, as well as LTC Carl Mott who was the CO of the American artillery unit in Tay Ninh, South Vietnam with whom I worked closely as a member of the Field Artillery Btry of PHILCAGV(Philippines Civic Action Group to Vietnam) in 1968 while a First Lt. I am now retired and is on my first visit to US, visiting my son who recently finished his Ph D (Chemistry) at the Univ of Houston. While here in USA, if possible I like to get in touch with these two friends from way back. I can be reached at 8700 Broadway St., Apt 1386, Houston .

Hi Sally,
How was your trip to Hawaii for your 50th wedding anniversary? Were you able to assemble all your children and grandchildren during that very important/memorable occasion, especially Ian who has to travel all the way from Dubai?
How was the celebration? What attractions around the area did you tour/visit? Did you go back to CONUS directly or visit/pass by some other countries on your way home?
Congratulations to you and Mike on your 50th year together. To me, US is notorious for high rate of divorce. I know that it involve a lot of give and take to last that long, I know because I am doing/going thru it now..
My 8th chilld (John Kennedy S. Ramon) is also working in Dubai. He is 35 now and is still single but I understand is now in a relationship with a nurse who also work in Dubai.
My 7th child (John Rockefeller S Ramon) is a nurse and married another nurse (Rosalie). Rosalie went to US last August and is now working as a nurse in Colorado. My son, with two kids aged 4 & 2 will travel to join Rosalie middle of this month with my wife Vicky to assist with the two kids and see to it that the family is settled down properly at home and at work. Vicky might be there up to April next year. This Christmas will be our first family gathering without Vicky.
Vicky always manage to have so much with so little during the occasion. My children and grandchildren will try to manage on our own during Vicky's absence.
Advance Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sally.
