Culture Shock Print

After my third year at OLLO (1967), the seminary moved to Assumption Prep and I went on to finish high school in West Haven, CT. In just over one year after leaving the very contempletive, disciplined surroundings of OLLO, I found myself patroling the ridges of the A Shau valley of Vietnam as a U.S Marine. Now that was culture shock.

Hope to find out how others are doing. I often think back to my OLLO days. They formed the basis for the rest of my days.
