Mr. Keller...how're things ?? Just found this site a few days ago, after a search for Newt Kendrick...it's good to see some of the old familiar names and faces. I haven't seen or talked to anyone from the old gang, but I don't exactly travel in those circles anymore. drop a line if you get this.
Ran into Bob on the ramp at Peter Oknight in Tampa. Just got back from Quad A and saw Larry Case there.
I'll be in Tampa for SOFIC Conference 9-18 June. We'll have a King Air and AT-802U there for flight demos. Come over for a demo flight and a beer. If you send me an email address I'll forward you some more stuff.
Mr. Keller, Sir,
Good to see you are still flying, I have Mr. Cooley on my facebook, and Sgt Coleman here, but I have seen nobody-else... -Did google-map the airfield, is not an airfield anymore... doctors offices now I think..
I sort of took a tangent after the service, have been heavily involved with muical intruments- worked for Fender / Guild Guitars for 9 years, and here in Calgary I worked as a cello / violin restorer.
Currently unemployed, however, violin shop had to lay me off :(
- Owner of the violin shop gives me a lot of odd work to keep me alive, lol, - drove a winnebago to Ontario last month for him, in a snowstorm.
-Job markt is being very picky right now, I might very well end up back on the flight line, canadian military age cut off lol is 53, and they have an opening in April.....
- Anyway, no kids to show off, still single, still cycling around.. etc..- do have a cat.. Fish.. plants..
I have bunch of fotos I want to post and no scanner at the moment- working on it. considdering kinkos..
The Army was my life for 20 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have to say I learn as much from our young soldiers as I'm able to teach. They really are a very intelligent bunch. I'm glad to hear you are still flying.. Have you heard anything from Buford Thomas or Melvin Moore? Buford was the Nomad Trp 1st SGt for a time and Melvin Moore was the Cobra Plt Sgt during our time there. How about Chris Darden or Rany Schoel? Former Trp Commanders?

I work for Honeywell International as a Mechanic instructor for all the new up armored HUMMVW and ASV varients. I travel the world still helping soldiers
