Stella’s husband George, along with son Jim, forwarded me the photo of Stella that I couldn’t find. My memory of the era was way off. This was taken at the Bitburg Air Base, Germany Officers Club, circa 1964. The song the ladies were dancing to was “Night Train.” Stella is on the right, and she would be about 32 years old here.
Oh, and I hadn’t known until Nebojsa Malic pointed it out on his blog, but Stella’s father Leonidas was actually born in Sparta proper.
