It has taken me 43 years to find my good High School friend, Archie Jacobs. You might think it unusual to loose track of a good High School friend. Not in our case since our fathers were in the military and stationed in Europe. We went to an American High School in Wiesbaden, Germany (General H H Arnold) for our senior year in 1971 only. We did loose contact after graduation as we went to different state colleges. I often wondered why Archie never sent any updates to HS alumni functions. I sadly know why now thanks to the internet albeit a little late in my search.

Archie was a good man as many of the past reflections have stated. Even in High School he always did what was right and equitable. Archie was always there to support and positively influence me as well as others. We did love to kid him about his perfect hair and how he could run a block and every hair would stay in place. So I'm shocked to learn of his passing but not surprised he died in the line of duty as a hero. My best to his family and fellow officers.
