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.

Great hearing from you!

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?

Hello Bill, I do remember you. I haven't checked back with this site in a long time. That is why I haven't responded. Is that a current photo of your job in Orlando? We were in Orlando last year.

Toujours Pret William,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out another member may be able to help.
And his only wish that ‘We keep it clean’, use our real names/with pictures, and you tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley
