IN NOVEMBER OF 1967, I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM FIRST LIEUTENANT KEVIN BROOKS, USMC "C" COMPANY, VIETNAM, ASKING FOR OUR HELP IN SENDING SOME COOKIES TO BRIGHTEN THE HOLIDAYS FOR HIS MEN. LT. BROOKS WAS A GRADUATE OF MANHATTAN COLLEGE (before it was co-ed, of course...) AND REMEMBERED CNR FONDLY. I WISH I STILL HAD THE PICTURES HE SENT US OF HIS GUYS SURROUNDING THE MOUNTAIN OF COOKIE BOXES WE SENT THEM. I SAVED HIS LETTER ALL THESE YEARS AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH ALL OF YOU.
