Thanks to you and Kathy for the word of encouragement on the move, yes I will be keeping busy with this move but I am looking forward to it, getting the new place set up and all especially at my own pace and schedule. And yes on the reunion Linda and myself will be there. Not sure how I will be getting there probably on one of my trips moving across the country I need to time it right to be driving through Kansas on that weekend. Take care and we look forward to seeing Kathy and you there.

Dave, the Memorial Day Movie has been approved.  I will send you a copy Shortly.

Right now we are trying to find..never mind.  Can you recall the name of the G.I. whose remains were just found in North Korea.  They had a funeral in one of the National Cemeteries.  If someone can give me his name, we will lay a wreath in memory of him who had no one . This happened this past week

Opie, quite the dashing couple.  I'm not so photogenic.  I look better in sepia tones.

Dave, thanks for the update.  Glad some bunch of maurading Irish senior citizens didn't get them.

Shannon sounds like all is going ok with your move..great to hear Kathy and I hope for the best for you guys..You'll adjust well I'm sure to retirement from what I just read you'll have plenty to occupy your time with the car restoration or putting it together etc..sounds like fun and a challenge..I see you guys might be at the reunion?? it would be great to see you guys.

Hey there to all..sneaked in the basement door of the saloon here to say hello to all!! by the way Tacoma I thought you had that door fixed, alls good otherwise I would have had to have tried the front door and Harry I hear has strict words to the seargent at arms to charge me double for my sasparillas,,,and I just don't have the chachings!! Anyways I tried my luck on getting on the base to register for the Reunion in Kansas City this year and wouldn't you know it,they let me on,,still have occasions getting signed in but tonight they must have heard momma said we could attend the reunion,so I guess they knew I came with some money so I was able to sign in,,aliitle broker now than before but we are looking forward to attending,my son is even going to come with us,,not too sure how that will go with what influences 2d Cav troopers might have on him!!! I'm sure it will be positive.
