Hey Jeff, that sound like a plan, I was glad to hear from Michael, he contacted me a few months ago. I would like to hear from Howard Tucker, I visit him when we got out of the service in 1980's, since then lost contact........I believe he was living in Albany NY. Wonder what happen with Steve-o and Paul Stewart........wow time is moving so fast, let try and plan to meet.
