My Dad, James Edmon Cheek, was born August 16, 1911 in Mangum, OK. He would be 96 today. He was a career army officer, served in WW2 and Korea and retired as a lieutenant colonel. He went back to school, got 2 degrees, and taught social studies at Carl Albert Jr. High in Midwest City, OK until he retired again in 1977. He was hired to teach Oklahoma History at Rose State College (then known as Carl Albert Junior College) but died of a massive heart attack just before the semester started. The picture was taken in Mangum, OK around 1941.
