Will do, Top.

Kind of worried about Gene Beck. Haven't heard from him for awhile. Hope all is OK.

Hey Top!

I sent you an email to an address I had, but never got a reply, so it must be an old one you no longer use.  Hope you are doing well.  I've been reconnecting with some of the folks from 2nd platoon C Trp. In the last month I've been in contact with John Matuszewski, Paul Klosowski, and Marvin A. "Al" Olive (my platoon sergeant).  They all pass on their regards.  If you want to email me directly rather than post here, it's jjunk@coomcast.net.  Best regards, Jim

Morning Top.

Just wanted to share this little tid-bit from our history with you. I know you have celebrated a lot of birthdays but I had no idea....

Another hero of the Mexican war was Sergeant Jack Miller, whose small patrol was ambushed by a force five times its number near Monclova in November 1847. The dragoons were going for their carbines when Miller shouted: "No firing, men! If 20 dragoons can't whip 100 Mexicans with the saber, I'll join the Doughboys and cart a fence rail all my life." The Dragoons charged and killed six Mexicans, wounded thirteen, and captured seventy. Casualties in Miller's unit were limited to only one man wounded and three mounts lightly scratched.

That's good to hear, Top. I've got old injuries that tend to bother me a lot when the temperatures drop, and boy have the temperatures dropped recently. Finally back above freezing and lots of rain.

I hope you had a Great Birthday. Wet and pretty cold here. Take care.

Happy Birthday, Top!

Just got done with a little Graf weather. Lows in the teens and highs near freezing. A guy can sure get tired of that in a hurry!

Hope your knee doing better. Take care.

Thank you, Top.

Got a slight dusting of snow yesterday, but it didn't last long. Highs, in the 30's and lows in the 20's for the next few days. Brrrrrr!
