Did someone say Jr. Deputy ?

. . .1961 I think . . .


  1. I still have my badge, mine is metal but star shaped. They give the kids plastic ones these days, sucks.

  2. The one in the picture is metal and likely produced in . . . er, 1961.

    What year for the star shape?

    Seagate Homeboy
    NHS Class of '67

    9:26 p.m. PST

  3. SH-

    Don't know when they started with the star badges, but I got mine in '74-'75.

  4. My star is from '68 - '69.

  5. Note Dale Bremmerman - the first man killed in Viet Nam from Naples. His mother, June, taught biology at NHS and drove a little MGBGT.

    It was front page news when Dale died.

  6. I believe that Junior Deputies was started in 1960 and John Rogers was the sheriffs department deputy that headed it up. They used to take the boys out to the woods for a weekend where we learned rifle shooting/safety and other "guy" stuff.
