Happy birthday and RIP John Boyd.
Gone way to soon,RIP.
Rest in peace John Boyd. Thinking about you on your birthday.
You asked about Capt. Mick Mason. Good Man! I was a 1LT as S-4 in 1970 with a few weeks to ETS. Mick walked into my office and said, "Lt you are sitting in my chair." I got up, saluted and he made me the support platoon leader until my ETS. I think he went on to be I Troop CO. Mick was a pilot and at that time they had to do tours on the ground. I think he earned a direct commission in RVN. He was a quiet honest man and kept to himself.
I ran into him again around 1992 or so. He was a Director at AAI corporation in Florida running a division. I was starting my Executive Search business and he gave me work that really helped me get started. We worked well together and he introduced me to other Exec's at AAI. AAI became a client of mine for the next 20 years.
I owe a lot to Mick. I lost touch with him but last knew him to be in "The Villages" in Florida.
Crap, I missed your birthday. And I was just thinking about you the other day.

sorry John About not being on here I had to have a kidney removed due to cancer and then I had to go back into hospital because my organs were starting to shut down on me. I had to go on Dialisis for about six Months but I recovered from that. I am not on Dialisis any more. I now have renal cancer that has mastated to both of my lungs am doing fine even with that. I hope this finds you well and enjoying life.
Have a Great B-day John.
