We created this site to connect and re-connect with our fellow alumni (even those who will not be attending the reunions). Our next goal is to make this site a scrapbook of memories for all alumni and their families. Our site is private!

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our site is on this page. If you have questions, please contact Dave Peterson.

The host of this web site,, understands the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.

Your contact information is private. Your home address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by fellow alumni. Each Teammate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow alumni by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non-members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed on to the site and restricted your profile to only fellow alumni, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non-members.

Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each Teammate's profile page (just look under the alum's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact fellow alumni without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

All class Email news is sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.

Please note that if you do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting Dave Peterson. This will end all communications to you from the Honor Guard/Drill Team through this site, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing, at a minimum, a valid email address and a password.

To set up your profile: Locate the "Teammate Profiles" link and click on it. If the last year you were on the Team isn't listed, click the "Add Yourself Here" link to get to the Member Wizard. Follow the prompts to create your profile. If your last year *is* listed, select it and then click the "Don't see your name above? Click here to join >>>" link to get to the Member Wizard. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow alumni. We collect mailing addresses and phone numbers in the event that we need to contact you by regular mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other alumni without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Your Teammates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

If you run into problems during the profile setup, contact us and we'll help you through it.

Updates: If you change your email address, home address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up-to-date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your fellow alumni are up to!


Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" link will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "Remember Me" will fail (for instance, when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set up your account, contact Dave Peterson. This could take a while so please be patient.

To contact a fellow Teammate, you may simply use the email option at the top left of his/her Profile page (located under Master Photo).
