Sometimes at Rescued from Recycling we find enough material and photographs from one family to do some research and hopefully return the collection to the family. Today I started researching a collection I have been really fond of for months.
What I found out was this little boy who was born in 1945, attended a regular high school and then after some upset went to a “continuation high school” which was an “alternative means for students to receive their high school diploma…students receive guidance and career counseling” finishing a year late. He went in the Army in 1965 (likely drafted to Vietnam) After I discovered that he was working for an uncle at Hughes Aircraft in 1970, I couldn’t find out anything else other than a divorce in 1978. He shows up again in another state in the ’80’s as the defendant in court for a civil complaint from a woman, again for possession/selling of a controlled substance, for four traffic infractions, one charge of auto negligence (when a person fails to operate their motor vehicle in a reasonably safe manner), another divorce and a complaint from a neighbor.
I really wonder about the paths of our lives. What happened and what could have happened?
