We were 3 AT's living about a block away from you guys. Bobby McKee, Joe and I. The only people I've heard from over the years are Roop Keifer, Jack Winnett and Bud Steil and recently Fred Lauderbaugh.

I know I am being a PITA with messages this morning, but you have a picture of someone sitting under the nose of an A5 on your photos.  Do you know who it is, because it looks like me.

Papa Joe (Chief Somers) was like a father to everyone in the photoline dept.  He is one of the people I am looking for.  Do you remember a WO4 Husted. He might of been a LJG then. Did you hear about the guy that lost his leg in Albany on a motor cycle?.

He was from South Carolina, and everybody just called him "Shreck". I'm not sure which RVAH squadron he ended up in. When we got to Albany, we got separated. Just wondered if anybody else knew of him, and whatever happened to him. We transferred to Albany in the fall of 1969, and that's when I lost touch with him, 'cause shortly thereafter I shipped…
