New C-130 Book now released
TOLD BAG replied to Thomas Young's topic in C-130 Community Announcements & PromotionsI am a personal friend of Tom\'s and can assure you that his hard work is evermore present in this book. I couldn\'t put it down! Imagine having pen and notebook in hand, then walking throughout your wing and talking to the warrior\'s that make it happen......that\'s what you will get in his latest book. Tom\'s other book, a novel titled Trash Hauler\'s Ball is one of my favorites. It too is a literary tribute to the Herk, it\'s crew\'s and maintainer\'s. I suggest that this novel should be on every Herk lovers mantel. Great job Tom! Kurt
Heavy Chain and Eagle Flight.......
TOLD BAG posted a topic in C-130 HistoricalI am interested in the history of these two operational organizations that operated during thye Vietnam era. Maybe in our current era of the 21st. cent. will shed some light; in 1979 I made several inquries and was counseled as to \"keep your mouth and curiosity shut, and get back to work\". What were the qualifications for the flight crew\'s? What locations did the \"flight\'s\" train in, or at? What happened to the crew\'s and maint. personnel when the unit\'s were disbanded? Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks! Kurt

TOLD BAG replied to rje71's topic in C-130 HistoricalOMG! Is that Hamm\'s beer those crew\'s are drinking? Yuk! I used to drink that stuff in college when I couldn\'t afford Budweiser. Old Milwaukee was referred to as \"Survival Brew\". Kurt
McPeak and Obama......
TOLD BAG posted a topic in C-130 GeneralWhile viewing NBC Nightly News last evening I was dismayed; then not so surprised, when I saw Merrill McPeak supporting Obama:dry: Then, to add to my disgust, Hillary was bragging about landing on a hot LZ back in the \'90\'s. Oh my......this is going to get better and better.
