Not unlike many high school graduates in 1967, Terry Stark didn’t want to go to Vietnam when he graduated from Round Rock, Texas high school.
Stark is as patriotic as it come and was proud of his family’s military service. His father fought on Guadalcanal in World War II; his uncle was a Korean War vet, both Marines. However, he did not want to “get shot at” in Southeast Asia.
That was a major reason he enrolled in Southwest Texas State College (now Texas State University)
