Hey Mike, great to find you and your brother after all these years, and everything Butch said too, LOL. I tried calling out there myself a couple years ago with no luck. It is great to re-connect with everyone again after all this time. Be sure to tell your brother about this site, would be great to get him on here as well. And what are the odds that your son is here in the Navy, definitley looking forward to taking him out for a few beers.

 Hello Mike, long time know hear from. How is life? Its funny how so many guys are all of a sudden getting back in touch with each other. Its great to know your ok. Tell Jer I lost contact with him because of alot of stuff going on in my life back then. I still have alot of his pictures he sent me, somewhere. Tryed to find you guys about six months ago, but the phone operator said no Chadwellss in Battle mnt. If you look at the video, there are some shots of most of the guys. Mike its true when you said greatest bunch of friends guys will ever have. Don't understand why, but it's true. Could be cause it was so frigan cold we had to be close, (thats a joke). Serious, thats when I learned about real brotherhood and learning to depend on other guys. Haven't had that since then. I forgot about Tim, have you heard from him? Tell Jer hello. Glad to hear from you.
