Neil's Bio From 50th Year Reunion:
Neil Baker : A 50th Reunion Brief History
I went into the Army Security Agency just as another of our classmates did, but I spent most of my time in
England with a few leaves in Spain, London and some other places. Really enjoyed Barcelona, Spain.
My time in England was very beneficial to me in my developement and growth. I was only 5' 6" when I went in the service at the age of 19 1/2 years old and had not gone thru any of the normal growing up steps. No shave, no voice change,
and nothing else. The Army and great English friends contributed to my growth to 6' 1" and everything else followed.
I really enjoyed the Army branch I was in and the position of knowing everything that was going on all over the world,
from a secret information standpoint. It was fasinating.
Ended up in Calif. and got married and had two great boys. I was happily married nine years, nine out of 20 years isn't a bad average, HA HA. Finally remarried in Mont. and this one has been a much better situation. In October of 2001 we moved to Arizona. Sure was hot down there! I am a karaoke addict of sort and used to go much more often than I do now. My stepson and myself once went 17 straight nights to a number of different places in and around Mesa, Az. Don't go as often because of some down the throat treatments that didn't go as well as they should have.
I must say that the 30th reunion couldn't have been better for me if I had scripted it. Having been so shy and introverted in high school I was thrilled to have had the chance to dance with so many of my classmates whom I was to shy to hardly talk to in high school. It was a blast.
This is way more information than you probably wanted, but after being a salesman for over 35 years I guess I have a tendency to express myself much more than I ever did back then.
