Long, long time.  Still have fond memories of Ft Lewis and CSC, 2nd Bn, 60th Inf and the scout platoon there.  I can remember when we had the first snow.  You and Ryan Fukuki went out and made snow angels in front of the billets.

Hope life has treated you well and you are doing fine.  Take care.

Hi Sam,

             Long time since I heard from you. How are you doing? Was reminiscing the other day and thought of you. You always were upbeat and positive when we were in the heat of battle. I bet you are a real good Law enforcement officer . You had the demeanor for it. It is damn sure dangerous . Never know what is going on with someone when you stop or confront them. Hope all is going good for you.

Hi Sam,

             Hows life going in paradise? I still dream about us over there. Thats weird huh? It was a extremely stressfull tour of duty. I read the stuff on this sight and think. What a great bunch of men! I was proud to serve with you and know you as a friend!

Hi Sam,

               Be carefull you don't get frostbite! 65 degrees thats dangerous.I think you were RED 2. I know you are a damn good soldier. I would fight a long side you any day. Old soldiers never die we  just fade away! We are having  a long awaited thaw. Still have  a 4 ft. snow pack, but, there is hope. I am Doctoring with the VA now cause I can and it helps my family save money. You live on high ground? All these Earth quakes man. Well you take care Sam. Hopefully hear from you soon!

Hi Sam,

              We are buried in snow up to our shoulders here and cold. If you have the switch for  winter and spring there please turn it to spring. Your friend always.

Hows it going? I was thinking of you when that Giant wave thing was going on and thank God it turned out to be not much for you. The weather Here is freezing to partly freezing. Have you been to the gausthaus Shueller website in Benk? Check it out the menu is pretty much the same as when we lived there. I think the son took it over. Are you Married? Good pic man! Well I got a son with the flu here gotta go.

Watch your 6
