  2. Bob,

    There are no skin cancers that are recognized as being caused by A.O. In South Carolina, we call them Charleston tattoos. If you're on the A.O. Registry, which you should be, the VA will cover the procedures.


  3. It really doesn't matter whether you have 0% contamination in our fatty tissue or 100%, as far as treatment is concerned. There is nothing they can do to reduce it. The most we can expect is that they treat us all the same, and they do.

  4. The math for disabilities, I think, crunches something like this. Say you have a heart condition that's approved for 60%. They figure you're 40% healthy. Then you get type 2 diabetes, which is approved for 10%. They figure 10% of 40% healthy, which is 4 additional percent. So, you have 60% + 4% = 64%. Then it's rounded up to 70%.

  5. While on a rotation to Germany in '71, Mike Rose, a load from the 37th TAS tried to stop a moving pallet with his foot, caught his heel in the rail and broke it pretty bad. OUCH!!!

    That was Mike Roe. I flew with him a lot. Great guy. He was originally from TN. Last I heard he was a plumber in New York.

  6. SEFEGeorge, that works. Cause I know r can saw is in some country. Isn't it? Just kiden...grew up an Okie myself.

    pwylie, I take it you were a crew member? Don't know about survival gear myself. Never was issued any :) Did try on a chute when flying with ABCCC. I was so tall it was going to be a nightmare to fit, so the AC said "don't worry about it".....OOK!


    I was a loadmaster with the 37th TAS out of Langley, AFB.

  7. I found these while going through my brothers estate. Lost him to cancer not long ago. He was a WO2 Huey pilot for 18 months starting in '68. Do any on you Operation Fact Sheet boys recognize these as leaflets? The first attactment is the front and back, while the other two are the front only. Thanks for your help.


  8. I've heard that the Israelis interview everyone, eye to eye. They want your passport to know who you are, then ask why you're here, where you're going and why. If they're not satisfied with your answers, you're scanned, patted down or strip searched. I wouldn't have a problem with this.

  9. Found this in an old box of 'stuff'. Picked it up somewhere in SEA. May have been TSN. I think it may have had something to do with the airdrops at An Loc. I wasn't on any of those missions, so not sure. Can anyone remember how this was used? Sorry about the poor quality of the picture.

  10. For Sale. Used WWII bomber, Low Hours, Some water damage. "Skunkie", a B-25C Mitchell bomber that ditched in Lake Greenwood in SC on June 6, 1944 (D-Day) and recovered in 1983 is for sale. Any takers?

    This sale appeared in the Post and Courier newspaper this morning here in Charleston, SC

  11. That's not just in Georgia. It's everywhere....

    The thing I don't get about Georgia (actually the Marietta area) is how come all directions start out "You know where the big chicken is?"....

    I thought he was in Washington, DC.
