This is not an Amber Alert, although it might be. Who is this kid? I haven't seen him in many years.
As I recall his mother used to refer to him as a "darling child". She denies saying that to this day.
One thing I do notice, his nose is straight. Somewhere along the way it will be pointing to the left. (I wonder if that coincided with or caused his political view of the world?)
If the photo were in color you might notice the eyes are blue. You could not help but notice a ready smile. His mother taught him to be polite, to say, "Yes, sir and yes, ma'am." It was his mother's influence that brought him to a love of reading. (What better way to ignore someone than to be caught up in a riveting story?)
His childhood was just as unique as any other young person's was then and is today. Were you to ask him then, "Are you poor?", he would give you a puzzled look. (He might even be thinking, "What the hell are you talking about?")
He only had to repeat the first grade once. Childhood illnesses, particularly chicken pox played a huge part in that. (Wouldn't you know it, they didn't have all of the protective inoculations then?)
The family traveled quite a bit. Hid father and step-father, both, served in the US Army. (Maybe that was where the seed was planted for a similar career?)
If you know him, let me know how he turned out. If you need more clues. Make them up. (Who knows, maybe that is what I just did?)
May peace and love be with you all.
