Jim, Top Millar lost Trudy a while back. I know you would like know. Top wanted some time for himself I think. I hope you are well.

Thanks Jim. I think I gave him enough trouble that he just might remember me.

Jim, do you remember Lt. Becker? He came to C Troop as a Cadet for a while in '75 and came back as a 2nd Lt maybe a year later. He was my Platoon Leader. Bit of an ass for while but he got over himself. I wonder where he is.

Jim,

I talked to Andy Stilley about 1999. He found me on Classmates.com and sent me an e-mail. We talked a few times on the computer and then he disappeared, not answering anymore of my messages. We had been talking about the C-15 explosion and I think it really got to him.

He was living in Corpus Christi at the time and informed me that SSG Brow had survived his burn injuries and was living somewhere in Texas, but Andy couldn't locate him. He also told me he had recommended me for the Soldier's Medal but it had been denied for lack of witnesses.

Hey Jim. I'm just checkin' on you. You haven't posted in a couple of years. I hope you are OK.

Jim, You asked about the weather here, just came in from shoveling snow and enjoying my cappuccino and a Pall Mall. The winter is slowly going away, at least I hope it is. Turned 70 in January and a little exercise with ths snow shovel doesn't hurt. Waiting for the ice to melt so I can break out the fishing gear. Take care, Top

Hi Brother.

We always enjoyed our bachelors. :)

Shawn is in Phoenix. He and Barb are still working as teachers; hopefully he can retire one of these days. He sent us a photo recently of his most recent golden puppy who is much better looking than Shawn. We also saw John and Jane Swarts in Kentucky 2 Summers ago.They both remain characters.Mary saw Big Dog Grazier in Denver last year and he is doing well.

Well, gotta run for now. I work as a skiing Mountain Ambassador on Saturdays so I need to get my sleep; last Saturday I gave a mountain tour to a former Olympian from the 1952 Olympics! Very cool guy.

Cheers

Hi Jim.

It haaaaaaas been a long time. Trust you are doing well. Mary and I are in Steamboat Springs, Colorado doing a lot of skiing, hiking, cycling, 'Airstreaming', playing guitar, etc. Mary is in touch with Shawn Tierney and we saw Pat Becker in Santa Fe a few years ago. What have you been up to?
