A recent KFUN radio program that Jesus Lopez hosts had an old friend of mine as a guest. Willie Sanchez and I were students at New Mexico Highlands University together a long time ago.
This was the early 1950s when our veterans from both World War II and the Korean conflict returned and went to school via the G.I. Bill.

In other words, they came to get an education and they had little time to goof off.
