The Gathering 12      Aug 5-9, 2014 Holiday Inn Columbus North 2800 Manchester Expressway Columbus, GA  31904 706-324-0231… Reservations are listed as The Gathering.  There is a block of 80 rooms and more can be added as needed to the block.  The rate is $69.00 plus tax and is good 3 days prior and 3 days after the dates listed.  Cutoff date for booking is July 9, 2014.  We will be provided a hospitality room.  At this time, it is reasonable to assume we will be on site for our dinner prior to the raffle.  The food prices look good but all of this will be decided down the road. The block of rooms is open as of now.

Guntruck Songs

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

ACE OF SPADES:

PLAYBOYS:

ROAD RUNNER:

BLACK WIDOW:

RUNNIN’ BARE:

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…”

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: 

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

WILD THING…

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb

 

Question

Where did all the steel plate come from on the guntrucks ?

 

POL

More than 50 percent of all tonnage delivered to troops in Vietnam is petroleum products. The mammoth operation of petroleum supply and distribution is planned, administered, and regulated by 1st Log’s Directorate of Petroleum, located at command headquarters in Long Binh. Through the U.S. Army Support Commands at Saigon, Qui Nhon, Da Nang, and Cam Ranh Bay, the petroleum products are received, tested, and distributed to U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, South Vietnamese, and other allied forces, and various civilian agencies throughout the country.

Knob Creek, KY, Machine Gun Shoot

My brother (USMC Vietnam vet) and I have attended the Knob Creek, KY, Machine Gun Shoot for several years now.  It has always been an incredible time.  The first time I saw the “night shoot,” I was in shock; many more related.  It was something to see.  I thought you might enjoy this video, and the link to their site:      Respectfully, deb

You should be able to view this video by clicking the “play” on the video…(FYI – to ignore the pop-up ads – there should be a small “x” in the right corner of the ad to clear it)

If you’re in the Knob Creek area – it’s happening the weekend of April 11.
