    I am trying to locate anyone who knew Rod Slagle when he was on the St Pat’s Board in the 60’s. He graduated in 1966 and joined the Air Force. He was killed in Viet Nam and I and trying to put together a bio of his years before the AIr Force. If anyone can give names or numbers etc for board members back then I would really appreciate the information. Rod now has three grandkids and I would like them to know about their Grandpa Rod.
