Santos, Maria: George Cannon School, Midway Island: 1970–1972

I am a baby boomer born in 1960 and my father was stationed at Midway Island from 1970 to 1972.

We made many friends and all the kids played together, all the time and anytime (if we weren’t in school or church) and everywhere.  I don’t remember much staying in the house. There was only tv in the evening with 1 channel and no kid shows. No worries about kidnapping and crimes! My own children never had this experience, sad to say. (more…)
