James E. Snyder
Three students from the Nelson C. Brown High School, located on Nouasseur Air Base, Morocco, were killed in an automobile accident in the early afternoon of March 23, 1957. The accident occurred on the Casablanca-Marrakech road, not far from the main gate of the air base.
James E. Snyder was born on December 30, 1940, in Altamont, New York. Jim attended school in Nicaro, Cuba, 1952-53, and would have graduated with the Nouasseur Class of ’59.
This tragic loss was felt throughout the small base community. Friends and family still mourn, and wonder what these wonderful young people might have accomplished in a full lifetime.
