  1. The Montana ANG is also getting the C-130J or already has gotten them according to what I have seen on the local news here in Montana. I will have to keep an eye out for them flying over. Picture of their patch.
  2. Chris, I realize I am a day late for your birthday ---yesterday, but since you are a year older, you will understand. So I hope you had a good day and have more to come. Ken I houghtI would post a few pics of my area which you will remember for a few years ago. Ken
  3. Thanks Lee, I appreciate your remembering my 78th birthday. I do plan on having many (?) more and the way it look it's possible. Ken Trains for you Lee
  4. I would like to wish all you gentlemen a good year. Hopefully This year will be a good one!! Ken
  5. Trying to edit my post above. I meant stationed at Naha and CCK----not CRB. By the way Sonny, I will see what I can do about making some copies of the Keystone Kapers. Honest!!! Picture of my E Model I crewed at CCK taken years later while it was on a mission to New Orleans during Katrina. It was stationed at Little Rock at the time. It's next home base was the Boneyard.
  6. Do any of you guys remember a Ron Tennyson from Missouri. He was in my class and went to PI. Also in the picture is a Donald Fargnoli from New York I think. He was at Naha I think, but I never saw him but a few times. A guy named Ron Harper Was in the 817th . a Naha and a guy named Johnny Knebel was at Naha also. I am sure there are more of my class pictured were over there at the same time, Maybe Tachikawa. I used to run into guys I knew from Shepherd while at CRB quite often but wasn't sure what base they were from. I was at CRB almost every month for 29 months while stationed at CRB and CCK and 3 months at Ubon. One month I was at Naha full time I guess. Anyway my DD 214 shows 33 months total.
  7. Just dropping by checking to see if anybody recognizes any of the fine looking Airmen of the late 60's thru 71. Also, I hope all of you guys have a nice Christmas and New Year. Ken
  8. I forgot to say I was at Naha from Sept. 67 to Mar. 69. Msgt. Andy Haskell was my boss. I was 3rd. Wiper on 56-475 . I will post some pics of my Tech School class and I do remember most of the guys. The one guy maybe 2 are Johnny Knebel and Harper were for sure at Naha, and I ran into some of the other guys at CRB for the rest of my tour. Chris Carter and I both volunteered to go to Ubon as crew members on a Blind Bat crew. (flare kickers). He and I are pictured on the left side of the crew . Me with the glasses andhe is the short one with his regular fatigues etc. I can give all of the rest of the crews names if need be. The pictures I hope to post now are of my tech school. Maybe !!! Until I get my shit together, I will have to post one of Ann Margaret with the Bob Hope show in either 67 or 68.
  9. Dallas. thanks for replying to my query. What years were you stationed at Naha in the 41st. One of my classmates from Tech School was in the 41st while I was there in late 67 thru early 69. Of course I can't remember it now. I will see if I can post a pic of my class.. Also, there are probably several guys in my class that some you guys may know . If so, I would like to hear about them etc. I will attach a pic or two of my class as soon a I sign off! Also, I just remembered running in to a guy I graduated high school with. (1964) . His name is Larry Barndt and he was in charge of the 780 section or the other supply room at Naha. He had his wife there also. He is still kicking and lives in Wyoming. I will be back with a pic or two of my Tech School class. Ken
  10. Thanks, Sonny for your input! I knew you were still around. It would be great to know all of the young gentlemen pictured are still around. I have many more that I will try to post names with them. Ken
  11. I was thinking it would be nice to see if after all of these years there are still some guys out there that are still looking for some word about their old friends. Especially in the late 60's to the early 70's. You know, the guys from Naha, CCK. Ubon, Tachikawa, Clark, Max Tan etc. All were Viet Nam Veterans probably! Maybe we could post a pic or two ---if we still remember how!!! I will try 1st: I know all of these people Ken ,
  12. Sonny, no it isn't a picture of mine. I think it may be a picture taken of one of the C-130H birds stationed at Great Falls. An ANG group. Looks too new to be one of the two planes I crew-chiefed on. At Naha and CCK. Acft 56-475 & 62-1804 Ken
  13. Hey two young fellers Happy Birthday Chris(Tinwhistle), Lee (314 FMS) , Chris on the 8th & and Lee also ---I think!! I am pretty sure your birthdays are Feb 8th, a day before mine on he 9th!! I both of you guys are doing well Ken
  14. Merry Christmas to you too Sonny! Have a happy New Year also. Just a few business cards to jog your memory!!
  15. Good ones Sonny, good to see you are still posting the funnies. I think there are some more "old farts" still enjoying them! do I need to mention that the 35th TAS is still #1 !!!
