Good to know I didn't fry all my brain cells. my email address is; deboxjr@aol.com I went back to the steel mill when I got out.Went into the skilled crafts. My ex,linda and me had a couple of boys. I still see her all the time, we remain good friends. She just got tired of being married to an asshole.Workin' 80 or more hours a week and drinkin' 40 hours a week must have gotten to her. I gave the stuff up about 21`years ago.Got tired of puttin' lawyers kids through college. I do a little weldin' and buildin' now. keep a couple of old harley's runnin' and try to stay busy with off the wall projects. went to college a couple of times but never did get my degree. My youngest is always on my case to go ahead and finish my B.A.  I don't see much of a demand for retired millwrights with an english lit. degree.  I never did go to the 2nd Cav sight very often but I got a message from a friend of Eva Rudarmel. Do you remember Les? She said Les passed away about 4 years ago. I hope to hear from her again soon. I'd like to get in touch with some of the guys if I can find them. Eva  (Les' wife) is trying to find another good ol' Texas boy. Ron Ensley, remember that smilin' cowboy? He's from the San Antonio area I think.Linda has family there and about 35 years ago they tried to find him for me but they drew a blank. Dop me an email I look forward to hearin' from you. Later bud

Don weren't you from the Corpus Cristi area? Didn't you have a photo album about the hurricane that did so much damage in that part of the country back in the late 60's. I sorta remember a bunch of us guys sitting around a table at one of the local gasthaus' . I had my wife with me, living off post for about 9 months and it was one of the places the married guys would hang with their wives and girl friends
