Last Men Out

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

“Red Baron” Crew Lighter on ebay.

I found a Zippo lighter listed on ebay from 70-71. It has the names on it as Mark NCOIC/Steve Gunner/Frenchip Gunner/Russell Driver. I would sure like to see one of crew get it, I keep hoping that one day mine will show up. The ebay listing is.

VN Vet Welcome Home, Port Orange, Florida

Stopped in the Port Orange VFW this week, a really nice facility.  Talking with commander, he invited me and the Daughter to this event but I’ll be back up north by then.  Sounds like they are going to have a pretty nice event.  Since Obama and our do nothing Congress has pretty much quashed military fly overs, the fly over is going to be done by Viet Nam vets from Florida using their own planes.  They’d like to have some military vehicles for their parade and vets to join the celebration.  Contact info is on the flyer.  This town is just south of Daytona Beach and it’s my guess that this will be a pretty nice show.  If anyone knows of vehicles or groups that might want to join in, please call the numbers on the flyer.  Thanks.  scan0001
