  1. Just to put in on topic a little, HC-130's are back in Afghanistan! http://www.airforcetimes.com/news/2010/03/airforce_afghanistan_hc130_032610w/ Herk
  2. Thank you All, I've spent yesterday and today thinking of all the good times. There were plenty of them. It was great to be able to call and ask questions about the Herk and how it was tested. He always had insight that you couldn't find in a TO! Here is a link to the tribute page at French's: http://www.frenchmortuary.com/obituaries.htm The slide show that will be played at the momorial will be posted there when its done. Again, Thank you for your sympathies and prayers, Roger
  3. I know several members here knew my father CMSgt Charles Thomas. At 0350 MST he passed away in Albuquerque NM. He died of complications arrising from aggresive lung cancer. He was 74 years old. His career spanned ~ 55 years of service, (4 years in the Marines, 27 years in the Air Force and another 20+ as a civilian contractor for the Air Force.) He spent his entire time in the Air Force/civilian working or flying on turbo prop aircraft (130 and 133) with over 40 years in Rescue/Special Operatations. The service will be at 1100 on Friday 2 April at French Funerals, 10500 Lomas Blvd NE. Albuquerque NM. The reception will follow at the same location. ETA: My Mom has asked that in lieu of flowers donations can be made to: Palliative/Hospice Unit 4D NM VA Hospital 1501 San Pedro Dr SE Albuquerque, NM 87108 The hospice unit and the "step-down care" unit that he was in first did an outstanding job. They were always attentive, caring and profesional. Thank you, Roger
