Dear Ollie,

First of all, your web page is an absolute delight and what a thrill it was to get the call this AM from Bruce Mertz asking for information. The reason you can't find Arlet is that he started in 58B and finished in 58C. We married on his graduation day. My Air Force career was rather short lived due to the pregnancy rule but I did go to James Connelly where I was a supply officer for about a year. After three children and the youngest was in kindergarten, I went to Nursing School and finished with a BS in Nursing from University of Texas at Arlington. I then worked for over 20 years at the Student Health Center at Texas Christian University where I retired in May 98. Since then, I have taken numerous Sr. Citizen courses at the Jr. College where I am now involved in helping teach computer courses to other Sr. Citizens. I also volunteer at the National Archives and The Botanical Research Institute of Texas. I am very active in the Quilt Guild and the Herb Society so these are busy times.

Let me bring you up to date on Arlet as well even though he didn't graduate with 58B, many people may still remember him. During his 26 year career in the Air Force, he went on to obtain a Master's degree in
mathematics and after retirement, a Master's degree in Computer Science. He then worked 14 years at Bell Helicopter as a Computer Engineer. He now works part-time as an instructor at Tarrant County College in the Computer Science department. He is almost through with a text-book he is writing on C++ for Electronics. So his days are quite busy as well.

We have lived in Fort Worth since 1974 when Arlet was Chief of Electronic Warfare Training at Carswell. About 15 years ago we moved to nine acres in rural Tarrant County. Keeping this place up takes up all the rest of the time.

Again, thanks for all your effort in building this web page and for getting in touch with us.



Sincerely yours,

Helen Trammell Boyer
