    Hello Don, It's [email protected] Hey! Tell the story to everyone on Herkybirds about the A1C who became a Skipper on the L-100 and loved to throw his former rank around. Kurt
  2. Bob, I remember when you first posted that. How time flys by! That must have been ten years ago. Thanks again! Kurt
  3. Does anyone know of the particulars involving the crash of a 130 on Guam around '74 or '76? I once heard some bizzare stories that the pilot's were flying a local around the island with some civilian flight attendents aboard, and that the FE and Nav refused to be onboard the aircraft. Any truth to this? Kurt

    My real name is Pat McGroin! Now I wonder if the person who used to refer to himself as "Loren Cooper" will oblige us with his real identity (I have my suspicions).
  5. Whatever happened to Bill Caldwell? (I last ran into him around '82 or so and he was a O-5 at the time.) Kurt
  6. The 17th. and the "Last Frontier" will alway's be very special to me. Lot's of great friends and memories! Kurt
  7. I remember back in '88 or so, there was an SP at the RAF Lakenheath main gate that was waving traffic through while "break dancing" through his routine. Amusing, but still ridiculous and a quick way for a commander to get his ass chewed. Now the ZZ Top mode for turn-around.......cool! I would have loved to have seen that. Especially during the tumultuous operations during Shield/Storm; there were a lot of times in those day's when a smile and/or a good laugh was worth a thousand words. Kurt

    C-130 h3

    Hiya' US Herk, Hope all is well is well in "Jolly Ole' England" mate! I have it from a very reliable source that the "eight blades" will be on the Gunship's.......as to when, well time will tell I guess. Have a pint or three for me, Kurt
  9. Well thats a "non-descript" web site!
  10. Keep up the dedication and HARD WORK! "We The Veterans'" need you and your co-workers that strive to make the process possible. We salute you! Kurt
  11. Man that would be the ultimate home improvement project! I would have the flight deck as my study, the galley would be a wet bar, and the remainder of the Herk would serve as my work shop. Maybe someday, huh? Kurt
  12. Wow! Now that's an accurate simulation.........they got the crew door comming off in flight just like the Kodiak Herk! Ha!

    Ha! Ha! I still laugh my ass off whenever I think about the "pre-billeting" briefing you gave "The Wedge" before checking into your assigned room. Then in the middle of the night he comes into the room with his latest love trophy. It's a wonder you didn't slice and dice him right there on the spot! Kurt P.S. I sometines wonder if this neanderthal isn't the old troll "Loren Cooper".
  14. What is the policy that the navy has when an individual gets to sew on their new rank, but has to wait on their line number in order to receive the pay increase? Kurt
  15. This is so pathetic! I wonder what will happen if a person tries to light up a cigarette? Kurt
  16. Congratulations! I'll have a cold one in your honor this evening! Kurt
  17. I threw this out a few years ago, and it's one of my favorites: This is for the young buck's out there to keep the story living. A C-130 load get's into an altercation with a jump master.......heated exchanges, and the load gets a sick-sack plowed into his face right before the jump master exits the Herk. The result....the load is pissed and JUMPS AFTER HIM! From what the O-Club stories say, the Load is really into a whacko fit on the DZ and a lot of paratroopers are bewildered. Does anyone remember this incident? Kurt
  18. Are there any red stripes on the fuselage, or the remnants of any red striping? It may have been one of Hawkins and Powers old Herk's....... Kurt
  19. My ex-wife's credit score?
  20. Yaking on the cellular with one hand and saluting with the other, huh? Pathetic! What's even worse is that theres probably cell phones ringing during briefings, formations, ceremonies, counselings, appointments, fornications, etc.... I'm all for cellular technology, but MILITARY BEARING shall always be first and foremost. Kurt BTW: I just love seeing police officers talking on their cell phones, especially when driving......now that's really professional!
  21. Hiya' Skip, Please send me one. [email protected] Many thanks! Kurt
  22. A dual faceted tribute! For all of their hard work, and educating those who have no clue as to what those men and women go through. I salute you all! Kurt

    Herk price

    Wow! To be able to own a Herk! Talk about having dollar signs in my eye's! But then again, I better stick to NASCAR stores, pre-owned pickup truck lot's, and my marriage. Kurt
