Gun Truck Movies

Guntruckers are slowly getting some attention. A couple links below will hopefully play for us to view. Some Gathering Guntruckers starred in these movies. The You Tube movie gets interesting at about the 33 minute mark. The 53881 road warrior movie is 46 minutes of fun and Guntrucks.

This is a museum that we are going to visit when we have the gathering in California. They are building a 2 1/2 ton Guntruck to have at the gathering and some other vehicles.

Dean Triffett 1098th TC

I have learned that Dean’s wife Susan passed away this afternoon. I had talked to Dean after Christmas and he told me that she had just had bypass surgery. Dean is also battling stomach cancer and taking Dialysis 3 times a week. Dean needs our prayers. RIP Sue

Ho Chi Minh Trail

Got this in a email from Wayne Chalker. Lots of pictures and things along the trail after the war. Mostly Laos, but good.
