It is a small world after all. It was great talking to your son... you must be very proud. I also came back to Texas after hiatus of 37 yrs. Im in El Paso. It sure was good to know that alot of us are still around... So, how are you and hows retirement treating you. I also retired from the military as an E8, did my last 5 yrs as an I.G. and retired not too long after the Gulf War... Let me hear from you.
