Robert "Rocky" Barrett, Class of '66

About-Baker: At Baker, I mostly stayed in trouble. One of many memorable moments was when an M-80 was set off (by some unknown person) in "Oscar P's" office.. "Oscar P" came charging out of that office in a cloud of white smoke and shredded paper and rounded up the first 25 or so people standing around wondering what had happened.... It was lunch time and there were people everywhere... no one was hurt, just a lot of noise and smoke... today if that happened, the GBI-FBI would be called in very quickly. For the record, I didn't do it and I don't know who did!

After-Baker: Raced around town on motorcycles until the draft caught up with me in Feb.67'..joined the Navy.. got married, got out and back in a couple times (the navy)... raised hell all over Europe, was an Advisor in Viet Nam (72-73), retired in Jan.90' as a Senior Chief Electricians Mate.
