It's half a sheet of three-quarter inch marine plywood. Very heavy!

My son, a furniture mover, brought it home from Ft. Lewis (now Joint Base Lewis-McChord) several months ago. A Major who had brought it back from Iraq gave it to him because he was tired of lugging it around!

William, Rad. I worked on the first floor of the I Trp. bldg. in the head shed. Squadron Personnel, '68 & '69. What's wrong with being an " Old Timer " ? Remember those payroll deductions taken from your paycheck every week for over 40 years ? ? Now collect your Social Security and get it back ! Heh Heh Heh.

Just wait a bit,Steve. You'll be able to ask the Haitians themselves. They are already lining up to come over here. Can you speak French ?
