Happy Birthday Opie!

Knocked the cobwebs off the jukebox and filled it with quarters. This should chase the rats back into the basement.

Merry Christmas everybody. Hope this music gets you in the mood.

Happy Birthday, Opie.  Hope life is treating you well.  The jukebox is hidden by the cobwebs.  Whatever happened to those days?  Ah, fughedaboudit!

Served with HHT and Mighty Mike 7/82-12/84 Mechanic and Recovery Operations. Hardest duty station, but the best anyone could ask for. Wonderful memories.

NO ceremony at New Hampshire's veterans cemetery this Veterans Day.  People are nuts.  Live Free or Die!

Correction, I had 1991 on the brain.  I left 2/1989.  Wall came down 9/11/89.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
