> General Class Exp. 5-19-97
> Born 12-4-1910 (87 years old)

possibly be coincidence? I wonder if they realize what they did is so

They had to choose a W9--- since Ellie was born in De Pere, Wisconsin and
apparently lived there. I was born 40 miles from De Pere and built my house
one mile from De Pere (another coincidence?) My father's call sign was
