  1. PS Bob Dayley the nav was your brothernlaw
  2. Sleepin on the airplane is always easy for loadmasters we were usualy hungover with that said I remember on one flight going far far away the crew chief woke me up and stated in dismay that everbody up frount was sound asleep he did not know what to do , I told him to wake up the eng because he gets paid the least up there and I promply went back to sleep.
  3. Giz I remember having two on each plane used to use one of them on the long over water missions streached two 5000 straps across the center with one of them, that way I could scan and rest my eyes at the same time
  4. Bob and Giz both your wifes will be at the reuion so it will be interesting to see how this story turns out.

    In our day Giz the commander could stop your promotion just because he wanted to with no explanation. Your right it does sound like the obama team came up with this to go around people who doint agree with them
  6. Congrats Sparks, its just a littel over do
  7. Giz at the least this shood bring an interesting topic of conversation at the 316th reuion this year
  8. Giz kind of remember the chain boxs on the side just past the troop doors had to pull the chains out to count them on pre flight
  9. Giz wasn't that a recomdation if you were closing the door manuly to take the pressure off the up-lock.As far as the contents in the door compatments was to make shure there was enuff chain,binders and cargo straps for the mission at hand. Imagine my surprize when I saw two of the 10,000lbs chains at the local flee market.(no way you ever forget the hooks at the end of the chains.)
  10. Giz I think if the drinking had been less, it would have been way more complacated back than instead of just pretty good memoreys
  11. Giz I doint remember having to take anything out, the beer allways seemed to fit right in.

    Justafing your bad behavior by pointing to someone else only makes you both wrong. George Bush will go down in history as the only man ever blamed for everything. But Im glad to see there is at least a few liberals on here to give the rest of us someone to disagree with. Is that calm enuff for you Giz. PS between George Bush and Obama as far as who has caused more harm to this country and are milatary not much of a thought patteren unless you are a liberal. Im going back to sleep now say what you will!

    Im surprized that we would question one veterns service over another. The only ones we thought about were some were heros and some off us were not, but we all served.
