While on in country R&R in May of 1968 in Vũng Tàu I happened to meet up with a guy I knew from high school. Who would have thought that I would travel halfway around the world and run into a classmate.
I was in a massage parlor talking to the masseuse and from the next booth I heard “hey are you Ronny Ymbras?, yes I replied.
He then said are you from Yonkers, NY?
I didn’t recognize him at first not seeing someone from home in over a year and all.
He was Herb Hudas from Yonkers High School! That was pretty strange but we had a good few hours after that. Who would have thought I would run into Herb 11,000 miles away from school and the world we grew up in.
