In Response to: The Oznot Project

Letters about the Oznot story reminded me again that for decades, my father’s Class of 1917 had news of an exceptionally romantic, adventurous classmate from exotic corners of the globe: Bert Hormone. Are there any other descendants of those unique seniors, who graduated early to train and become soldiers, who remember tales of Bert’s derring-do? He sadly never managed to come to the “war babies” reunions, disappeared a score of years ago, and presumably died with his creator.
