50 Years of Wildthing

I expect lots of Vietnam songs came in 1966. I had forgot that Sam Kinson and Jim Bakers Jessica Hahn also did Wildthing. The Troggs nailed it.

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

Eve of Destruction

This is the video that Ft. Eustis (Virginia), put together for the Eve of Destruction display at the Transportation Museum.  If you get a chance – give them a visit.  It’s very well done.  (Sorry the video is so small – that was the only way I could load it with a 10MB limit.  I think you’ll still enjoy it!) Just click on the title (make sure your sound is on!)…

This second part was the last half of the Eve’s video – it is sound only – a AFVN radio broadcast…

Interesting youtube video. I think the book, Last Men out, tells a better story.

Gathering 10; Video of Ft. Eustis Transportation Museum Visit

I’m not sure if folks had a chance to view the video Airman Tory Patterson and Airman Hetlage put together of the Gathering group; as we visited the Ft. Eustis Transportation Museum during the 10th Anniversary Gathering at Ft. Lee. VA.  From a personal standpoint, I was a surprise “target,” as I was departing.  When I declined an interview, explaining there were many more important folks they could interview, Amn Hetlage explained he “heard” I had something to do with the Ace, and he wanted my perspective.  After some encouragement (from several guntruckers 😉 I accepted (and was honored).  Again, with the utmost respect, I wanted to share a proud moment for all…
