One thought on “A “Bit” of Looking Back – Eddie Nokes Leaves for Marine Training (January, 1958)

  1. Yea, off my old friend and next door neighbor went; Leaving behind “SCHOOL” and all of those dreaded “BOOKS”!! No more school or study for him!! NOT!! Not only was he not through with school, if he didn’t study, they made him do it whether he wanted to are not!! I would say, Ed jumped from the frying pan into the fire, very quickly. There I was left alone to battle the elements of HCJC alone. Eddie and I had lived next door to each other for some 8 years and shared many fun times together, now, no more meetings at the Tiger Inn before the bus picked us up to got to HCJC, no more hunts, no more swapping stories, no more fun. My Buddy had really done it. Off to see the world and my world would never be the same. But, after all of these years, even the Marines could not change Eddie. Today Eddie I salute you and you still remain, my best friend ever!!
