Pics Added…

Hello everyone…  I just wanted to let ya’ll know some new pics have been added to the “Photo Galleries” tab.  John added a couple new ones (which appear at the top), and I received over 200 pics from a young man, Scott Martin.  His Father-In-Law, Soren Cornforth, passed away not too long ago.  Scott was helping with the family’s grief, and reached out to the guntruck community for anyone who might have known Soren.  His photo album is about the seventh from the top (titled “Soren Cornforth”).  Soren spent some time with the 669th on Satan’s Li’l Angel.  Scott can be reached by email — his info is on the Member’s List tab (Scott Martin).

Also, I’m finding the Photo Gallery page to be a little on the ornery side (that’s stubborn too!-).  It seems to behave a lot better if you change the “…Galleries per page…” default at the top from 5 to 0.  It will take a little while to change — but it’s worked every time that way for me!

Respectfully,

deb

Vietnam Fire Bases, LZ, and Air Bases

John Dodd has shared this incredible interactive map.   If you click on this link:

it should take you to the site.  I maximized my screen (not shown here), which allowed the areas to spread out more for viewing.

Guntruck Songs

I couldn’t find a song about King Cobra — but here’s a familiar one you might remember… “Hey Little Cobra.”  And I had to share this 1970 Nitty Gritty Dirt Band version of Mr. Bojangles!

 

Adding one for John, his Mustang, AND Chuck Berry!-)  ENJOY!

     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 (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

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

WILD THING:

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

THE CREEPER:

TheCreeperDCcomic

I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Doesn’t take too much to get me listening to those great songs of the ’60’s…John reminded me of another song by The Kinks (and another Guntruck!)

SET ME FREE:

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb

Gathering 2017 (XV) Morro Bay, CA

The California Gathering should give those in Western States, who can’t come to the Gatherings in the East,  the chance to attend a Gathering. There may not be any Gun Trucks there, but as always it will be a good one. Kathy and Sgt Willie is working to make this the Best one ever. If anyone know of Guntrucks or military vehicles in California or the West that might want to come let Kathy and Willie know.
