I have made my 50 year medal in 1997, and I should have received the 25 year 
in 1972. Well, I was told because I was in a laser eye study I didn't have the 
25 years without any complications. I think they made some changes because 
 John Grant got the first 50 year medal in 1976. John was in good shape, but was
not without complication. I am going to Joslin on Friday and will ask what you 
must accomplish to receive the 25 year award. Roger C (dx 12/1/47 pm 5/7/00)
