President Wilson's call to arms was met enthusiastically by about forty young men who attended Coalinga's schools from 1908 to 1917. Considering that the High School graduated its first class of two in 1912 the fact that so many took up arms speaks well of the patriotism of these young men, their families, and of the community as a whole. Their biographies are presented here as augmented with illustrations and by letters published in the Coalinga Oil Record.

Not everyone drafted during the turbulent sixties went to Vietnam. By hook or by crook, or just plain luck, many landed in the friendlier climes of places like Okinawa. That side of the story is seldom heard. While the troops in Vietnam fought heroically, often with less than full support, thousands of others skated by nearly untouched by the harsh realities of war. The Royal Ryukian Blues is a coming of age love story framed by the history, music and fog of marijuana that pervaded those crazy years.
