Scott in Hawaii

I found an article from 2005 about homeless vets in Hawaii, with this great photo of Scott Oswell and his daughter Caitlyn serving food to homeless vets. Thought I'd pass it along...

Hi Dan,

Thank you for finding this picture of Scott. In this smiling soldier, I see more of my friend from high school than in the pictures sporting dark glasses and sans grin. Like you, I have not seen him since graduation; time is a fickle beastie, and he lives in the halls I tread throughout the school year. Strangely enough, I had a student this past year who lived next to the Oswells and knew of our friendship in high school. In this way, I like to think connections forged are never truly lost.

Like you, I oscillate between the pang of pain and disbelief and the sheer joy of being.

Take care,
Stephanie Austgen
