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.


Wild Thing 10th Anniversary and July 4th parade

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

Wild thing I think I love ya. In July the  Wildthing crew will celebrate their 10th reunion since Wildthing was built.


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…


Here is the U.S. Army’s Transportation Museum’s web site address:

Last Men Out

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

Operation Danville

This military operation took place in Danville, Va way back in the day. I live about 15 miles north.


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…
