Close friends from the 1942 class of Isaac E. Young High School in New Rochelle, New York. Robert McKenna, Richard Thoren and Manvel Schauffler prepared to support the WWII effort early in 1944.
Bob fought with an armored division in Europe, Dick worked in a defense plant machining engine components for the Army Air Force, and Schauff served on landing craft during invasions in the Pacific.
Later in life Bob was a professional engineer involved in constructing power plants, Dick died soon after the war of rheumatic fever, and Schauff became a renowned educator of children as a teacher and administrator. | Click image for Comments.
