Comments:

Fellow Nerk Baby Boomers. I trust those who attend the reunion will share their journeys and hopefully, not too many Organ Recitals (whick organs like the kidneys and liver and such that are wearing out). My life jouneys have mostly been outside of the USA. I really enjoyed our 25th reunion. My focus is on consulting our great American military and families on identifying new jobs after they leave the military. My avocation is helping internation missionaries fulfill their mission goals of Helping Others in the Name of Jesus. We have active projects throughout the Far and South East Asia. If any are in this area, please contact me at 01182117198020. My email is BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM Hoping to make 50th Reunion Grace and Peace, Chris Vaia

School Story:

Little football, lot of Choir, lots of weekend Happy Day type adventures with our Fonzy - Kerri Ricker. Roller Rink and Flint Ridge and Lovers Lane and Buckeye Lake and Eagles and East end and dreams of what lies beyond NERK.

Birthday Greetings Lynn, We trust you and your family are healthy and enjoying ole Nerk. Hope you get a pizza someday from Dan's Family Pizza. I got so bored when I "retired" from the Army that I returned for four "encore performances." If you like to communicate sometime, please send email to BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM I have lived in South Korea and Far East Asia for over 40 years. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Greetings Don, Another good year our Good Lord has provided you. My math must be a little weak. Is it possible your first son is 53? You and Linda must be one of the rare couples from our class who have been together this long. My son - Jason just turned 43 and my oldest granddaughter Jeni just graduated from High School and heading to Georgia Tech. I always liked Kentucky even after taking Basic training at Ft. Knox. LOL Continue your journeys in good health and peace. While it took me much longer than you, I discovered what you have known for a long time that:" To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.” Did I hear an Amen from Kentuck? Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Dear Carol and Barbara, Birthday wishes for Carol. Comfort and strength for Barbara and Dan. This age of 71 is indeed an unexpected level for me and a blessing and challenge for all. As a man, I know our Good Lord blessed us with loving wives. May you both be wra[[ed in the arms of Jesus and family and friends for these troubles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoLNCtDyxYs We lift all of you up in our many prayer chains here in the Republic of Korean and throughout Asia and Europe and the US. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) Vaia

Greetings Kay, I always admire how people our age can retire. I am on my fourth encore performance since retiring after 30 years from US Army. So, if you want a nice vacation in South Korea, let us know. It is a beautiful country around Spring. I am sure you are ready for the cold Nerk days of winter. My cousin Dan Vaia runs the Family Pizza place near Whites Field. He probably will have a nice incentive for a Nerk Graduate of 1964. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Wow, not only do you deserve good wishes on your birthday, I honor you for your work in South Korea. I suspect that you have lived in God's grace for a very long time.

It's Chris Vaia's birthday today.

Greetings Karen, We trust you and your family are enjoying the blessings of being near each other on your birthday. It is harder and harder for me to find someone who is 12 days older than me. LOL I feel my cousin Danny will have a nice slice of pizza or something for our Birthday Baby Boomer Nerkite. You probably know his Dan's Family Pizza and lounge near White's Field. We are still in South Korea and working mostly Faith Based Helping Others in the Name of Jesus projects. If you and Stephen ever come to Korea, we will show you places few Americans know about. My email is BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM Our picture together is on a smaller island by a small fishing boat. It is better than Hawaii and most villagers know who I am. We make little balloon creations for the children and Grandmas and Grandpas. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Happy Birthday Blessings from the Land of the Morning Calm. We hope your Mustang is smoking your competition. I remember the Grand National Trails. I think there used to be a Hillbilly type park with country western singers like Betty Lou from Ruth Lyons 50 50 Club out of Cincinnati. Your life sounds wonderful to do activities together. I attach a picture of Eun Young (Sally) with her right hand on my sholder and the Balloon Brother (me) with the balloon heart and Evil Kinevil type shirt. LOL We have several projects like this with homes for disabled and hospitals and nursing homes and wherever a Chaplain or other Faith Based leaders guid us towards. What became of Buckeye Lake after the amusement park closed. During my adventurous days, I used to sing in a bar out there. I think I may have been 16 but looked like over 21. Good Lord Willing, I shall catch up with your age in November. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Hallelujah Greetings Pastor Brother Terry, Our Good Lord seems to be accelerating the passing of each year. Congratulations on reaching 71 a little before me.LOL Is Corning near Nerk? While we are confident you know the following Christian prayer, it is good to always hear its sentiment: May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 May these words bring you peace of mind on your birthday. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) Seoul, Republic of Korea.

We send you and healthy and peaceful birthday greetings from the ROK. Did you hear this one: On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle.
One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"
The tower responded, "Who is calling?"
The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"
The tower replied, "It makes a lot of difference.
If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o'clock.
If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon."

Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Greetings Don, I am glad that we are still trying to "bankrupt" Social Securit. LOL Over here in the ROK, I am often the oldest guy in the room. Kentucky guys are a bold stock so I guess you have a few eleders in your gruop of friends. Stay healthy and hope you are living some of the advice in Three Worthy Devotions Devote ourselves to loving others
Devote ourselves to the community around us
Devote ourselves to creating something that gives our lives purpose and meaning
Continued joy from the Land of the Morning Calm - South Korea. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) PS Photo is from a fellowship for disabled Koreans last Sunday at our Seoul Yongsan Garrison with the Hallelujah Balloon Brother (seated) and the Hallelujah Balloon Sister (behind me with her hand on my shoulder) My Brother - life is good.

Greetings Bob, Blessed Birthday regards from South Korea. We are looking forward to some more of your scenic pictures. Our out of country trips have included, in the last year. Italy and Austria and Germany and the Czech Republic and Thailand and Taiwan and Viet Nam. Most were a combination of humanitarian projects and leisure. We are both blessed, my brother, by having wonderful wives to share our lives together. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)

Blessed Christmas Greetings 2016 from the Land of the Morning Calm - South Korea,

All the best for the rest of this year and pending 2017. My Sally and I have dropped the word Retiree and continue to be blessed by opportunities to help others. I still do consulting work as an employment trainer for our US military leaving the service. It is rewarding, but our real full time mission is Helping Others in the Name of Jesus. Sally is a Social Worker with nursing homes and elder day care centers and homes for disabled. Holt Ilsan Town for about 250 disabled Koreans is very special to both of us. http://holtkorea.blogspot.kr/2010/03/ilsan-is-town.html I receive a monthly update from

www.simpletruths.com that provides encouraging books and videos. This little video celebrates mothers https://vimeo.com/150349844?from=outro-embed Those who choose to follow our Lord Jesus are a continuing reminder of how Mary and Joseph followed the plan of God.
Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally)
