Just letting you know that I hooked up with CD Etheridge yesterday. He has been out of contact with the Hoot Owls since leaving the Navy in 1961. We had a great telephone visit. I apperciate your help.
I was going over the roster (Thank you) and I see a Clifford Doyle Etheridge listed. I was in VAH-9 with a C.D. Etheridge from Duncan, OK in 1959. I am having trouble finding his home page. I tried searching the last names alphabetically, and can't find his name or home page. I'd like to contact him because he is on my list of missing Hoot Owls. Can you help, offer a suggestion or put me in contact with him?
