Forrest L. Guth-(In his own words)   

What a surprise! Thank you for your kind words.  My wife, Harriet , and I are still in Delaware, living at Cokesbury Village in Hockessin.  I've been retired since ' 77 and enjoying travel, hobbies, etc.  We have had an unbelievable experiences connected with Band Of Brothers including a trip to France to take part in the celebration at Normandy Beach on D-Day. We do see some of the Brandywine graduates occasionally, and hope you will have a good reunion.  Sincerely, Forrest Guth 

This Brandywine High School Industrial Arts teacher jumped out of a C47 into Normandy, France on D-Day, June 6th, 1944 with the 101st Airborne Division's "Screaming Eagles" and landed in the history books. His story is the story of the "Band of Brothers" of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment which formed the basis of the riveting wartime exploits of Easy Company the same outfit featured in the Fall of '01 (& repeated April '02 & still running on) HBO Special miniseries, "Band of Brothers" based on the Steven Ambrose book of the same name.  Mr. Guth is #25 in the (below) Currahee group picture. If you click on the picture of him autographing the young person's book you will get a larger view. Click here for the link to Forrest Guth's story in the News Journal Paper.

After leaving Brandywine in 1969, I completed a PhD in mathematics education at the University of Illinois, taught one year in visiting position at Purdue, taught three years at high school level in Turkey, and have been at Eastern Kentucky University since 1977.  I learned considerably more computer science and taught CSC courses for several years but I much prefer mathematics and recently have been teaching some undergraduate courses designed for prospective middle school math teachers and some graduate courses for current middle school math teachers.
