Summer of 1972 — Nineteen

Image

This picture was of me in 1972 when I was 19 years old and working as a team leader for the Neighborhood Youth Corps.  I had fifteen youths in my group.  They were placed in summer jobs and worked three days a week.  The other two days were activities which I had to plan and do.  It was quite a challenging job.

The average age of the US soldier in Vietnam was 19….19….19… The Vietnam War was raging when I was 19.
