  1. Living in Arkansas, I can bet there is!!:woohoo:
  2. Did you know Will or know of him before?
  3. Thank you very much. I guess that would explain why a letter I sent last year, came back. This is a good example why you should try and keep in touch with people as much as possible. Will was a good guy when I knew him and sounds like he lived a rich, full life, although short. Rest in peace, Will. BTW Suprload, how did you come by this obit?
  4. Willard C. Fry.........I was at Travis with him....he was a load on 141\'s in the late 60\'s/early 70\'s....I was in aerial delivery there. Then he was at Dyess in 78 or 79 in Herks. I happened to be there during our AF Reserve weekend from O\'Hare. Anybody on here worked with him or know of his whereabouts? He was a SSgt while at Travis.
  5. I can\'t top that one!:woohoo: From our house to all of yours, have a very Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!
  6. Anyone on here have Photoshop and, if so, are you good at it? I\'d like to have a photo of an L-100 in Delta Air Lines\' last two color schemes.
  7. It\'s also sad that Gen. Tibbetts asked that there not be a funeral service because of the chance of protesters being there. Poor man can\'t even publicly get the respect he deserves.
  8. Knowing them, they\'ll find a way to blame the U.S. and oh yeah, the Holocaust NEVER happened.
  9. About twice a week, 130\'s from Little Rock come over to Fort Smith to practice approaches. I can\'t always see them because of the trees but the sound is unmistakable.
  10. Sorry, Walt Koranda doesn\'t show on the roster......... http://www.flyingtigersavg.com/camco.htm Perhaps he was in the USAAF that took over from the AVG when they were disbanded on July 4, 1942.
  11. Not quite.....I\'ll be 60 in December and entered the AF in \'67.
  12. I guess the reason I brought this up is because I think it\'s up to us to keep their memories alive and to keep their place in history alive. God knows the younger generation won\'t learn it in school. Today\'s U.S. History classes are no more than an outline of what happened.
  13. This isn\'t Herky related but, do you realize how many WWII vets are dying, everyday? Too many....for instance, the Flying Tigers (AVG), who had 300 original members, now have only 21 left. Mr. Paul Clouthier died yesterday and about two weeks ago, one of the most famous of all, died........David Lee(Tex) Hill. Whether you think of them as merely mercenaries or not, they did much for this country at a time when it was desperately needed. Rest in peace, gentlemen. You deserve it.
  14. Well, I never had any of those SE Asia or western Pacific assignments...EXCEPT for a 1 year, remote tour on Shemya:S to be followed by 2 1/2 years at TravisB) .
