Allegany Hi Grads Meet In Vietnam

Two local soldiers, Sp/5 Rodney R. Keys, (right) and Sp./4 William Powell (left), both 1966 graduates of Allegany High School, had an unexpected reunion recently in Long Binh, South Vietnam.

Sp./5 Keys, who had traveled over 600 miles to a Long Binh base camp for special training, discovered that Sp./4 Powell was stationed at the same location. Sp./5 Keys reports that Sp./4 Powell was "one surprised soldier" upon seeing his first stateside acquaintance since his overseas assignment began nine months ago.

Sp./5 Keys is serving with the 38th Engineering Company at Kontum City Central Highlands, as an accounting clerk. He has been in Vietnam since August 1968 and is scheduled to be stationed soon in Bangkok, Thailand.

Sp./4 Powell is serving with the 62nd Engineering Battalion in Long Binh as a personnel driver. He is scheduled to return to this country in May.

Sp./5 Keys is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Nial F. Keys, 234 Glenn Street. Sp./4 Powell is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Powell Sr., Maryland Avenue.
