Harold and Harry,

I recall seeing a picture posted of Wayne with the Hat. I do not recall who posted it. I think it might have been either R.C. or possibly Tom Blasziewicz (a bit fuzzy on the who)

The original hat looks like this:

Harold, I am befuddled.

Harry, I coppied wayne's hat and painted out the tank on the left with the cross swords

to get the hat I wanted.  I hope you can picture it, but one of the guys went to his house to give it to him.

You even said to Dave that it was great and maybe we started something.

Find out who gave him the hat

Harold, you're memory must be better than mine. I do not remember that.

HARRY, ABOUT 2-3 YRS AGO, SOMEONE WENT TO WAYNE'S HOUSE AND BROUGHT HIM THAT BEAUTIFUL 2ND ACR BASEBALL CAP. YOU WERE EXCITED THAT THAT HAPPENED.  I DO NOT REMEMBER WHO GAVE HIS THE HAT.

I have no news about Wayne.  I'm hoping that if anybody knows someone who knows someone that might have a connection to Wayne, via Facebook or otherwise could fill us in.
