Guntruck Songs

     As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…






Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!

And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”


 (A LOT of good music came from the ’60s.  Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)

SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)






Hope you enjoy.

KOKOMO Sept. 2014 with 815th Engr.

Kokomo has come to a end. Lots of Trans and Engineer guys stopped by. Al Merritt and Ron Kendall came and spent some time with us. Sharon, Web and the ladies fixed some great food, so we are 5 pounds heavier. I have started a photo gallery for all to see. Thanks to the Wildthing crew for making another year a success. If you plan to come next year, google motels in Kokomo and Gas city. Reservation should be made in Jan to insure a room or go to  to see about a camping site.
