I also met Peter in 1962 at Smedley, my first time in integrated schools. Peter, Steve Faulkner, Mickey Mayer, Mick Shovlain, Tim Koger, Larry Megard all became fast and steady friends to me. Rest with God Peter Alagna.

Pete was my best friend in High School.  We use to practice at SAVHS baseball field almost every Saturday.  He would stop my house and we would walk over to SAVHS to practice on Saturdays.  We went to SAC together.  He was dating a girl who was in High School and she broke his heart.  Next thing I know he enlisted in the Army.  I was attending CSLBU when he was deployed to Vietnam.  He, his sister and I went out one night before he left to a bar.  I ended up staying at his house because I was so drunk.  His death really had an impact on me.  I still have a letter he sent me from Vietnam and I have never openned it.  Pete for all the good times we had you were such a good friend.  I pray you are resting in God's loving arms.  Your friend Scott.

Thinking of you today.  I remember you sitting behind me in English class senior year.  You were always such a sweet guy and very kind.  Thank you for your service.

Dallas, and all who served in Nam. Thank you all especially for ur service n coming home to an unappreciated country. My brother life ruined due to Agent Orange is still huanted. PTS episodes of bullets passing by his helmet or near his ears, sounds of hellecoptors. We comfort him by saying that those bullets missed n he now has 23 grand n great grandkids combined, to where some of our friends, like Peter, did not get that wonderful choice . Thank you again Dallas n all our brave Falcons. 💜

Tonie,  A correction is in order. Your kind words may give others the impression that I served in Vietnam which I did not. I posted a tribute to Peter and  to those who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedom. Peter was a friend and one of many who must remain in our thoughts and prayers.

Dallas, I understand n stand corrected none the less we all felt that horrible conflict. Recognition n appreciation from all us Falcons we share. I loved you in football, n glad you didn't have that Nam experience. 😊

Keith and I moved to Santa Ana and enrolled at Valley Oct. of 1964.  If I am not wrong at that time there were 2 lunch times?  We had the 2nd lunch--closed campus--I did not want to stay there for lunch--anyway we began to eat over near the back of the auditorium.  That, is where Keith and I met Pete--there was some action of oranges and apples flying around so Pete told us to come over to a better place to eat in safety.  I think that Keith and him played HS baseball together.  Thanks Pete for being a up front guy.. R.I.P.
