I can remember but I forgot where I put it. Oldtimers are allowed to have senior moments.

I remember what it is, I just can't remember what it's for.

Good evening Wayne,
I know we still have it but we don't know what it is.

Hello Harry, are you saying we don't have it any more. I have to dredge out all the old memories, thay I still have. Old age starting to take a toll. I had a lot of good memory to kick around.

Jeff,
Some of us are lucky and grateful that we can still think at all. Welcome to our little group. I hope you can renew some old acquaintences or make some new ones.

Jon Racaci Read your comment on your time spent at Ft Mead and I also was at Ft mead at the same time. Was in A Co iSt Bn 2nd AC took my basic and advanced tng there.I was a Field Comunication wire man. Left Ft Meade in Oct 56 . I also sailed out of the Port on the Buckner, Remember the crew member that swallowed his partial plate and we had to divert to Newfondland so a chopper could pick him up? But we made it to Germany in 10 days.I was picked to pull mess duty for the dependant dinning room. Never ate a meal in the troop mess. I was assigned to How Co 3rd Bn in Amberg .We left Germany on the troop ship USNS Rose on my birthday 18 Feb 1958 Best Birthday gift for me.

You're either gonna be partied out by the time everybody gets there, Bruce, or you'll be guiding tours. Have a good time. Sorry I can't make it.
