I am with the Northeast High School Alumni Assn and have been contacted by a 94 year old man that is a friend of the family that would like a member of Mr. Nash's family contact him. I am pasting in a part of the email that was sent to me. Hopefully you can forward this to a family member and they can contact him.... Thank You Sal Fanara '54

His parents and mine were close friends at the time of his & my birth. We grew up together and together enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1943. He ended up as a Pilot on B-25 bombers and I as a Flight Engineer on a B-17 bomber. After war's end we met only once as I lived in Europe and he here in KC. I am now 94, living here in KC and would really like to make contact with any member of his remaining family. If you are able contact a family member would you please ask them to Email me at the address below. Thank you for your assistance.
