      MartinChartier Interesting! I wonder if our fathers ever met? When were you all there? (Dad was there from 1964 through 1968 . . . a year ahead of us.)
      My father went in and out of "places" . . . for verification . . . and to transfer information. His clothes & boots we...  more

      Sargesbrat Martin -- We left Japan 10 years before you got there. Since dad's cover was blown, we were evacuated over night. That was the end of the spy stuff. He had so many false ID cards, your dad could have met him as a colonel. His picture is in a coupl...  more

    MartinChartier I sometimes think of childhood friends. We shared a life in common, where our home was our family, our love was our country, and we were proud to be in military families. We had good times . . . some of which were perhaps a little too mischevious. :)

      Sargesbrat Were you in the OA at Clark AFB ? Their neckerchief is selling for four grand on ebay. Go figure. We are thinking of forming a Scout chat group. Would you be interested?

      MartinChartier Sargesbrat: I'm in OA but joined after the PI and was very active in the St. Louis Area Council and later served as an adult Advisor in a TX Chapter.

    Sargesbrat shared bratdawn's poll. I believe the major cause of birds falling out of the sky in the Remington 12 gauge shotgun...or aliens.

      Sargesbrat You have no recollection or just aren't telling? You ain't the first one to use the ol' abduction coverup. When I was abducted, they cut off my tail and shaved me then sent me back as a human.

    bratdawn Just saw a trailer for new series coming out called Against all Odds about VN....best quote was "There's no better fighting machine than a 19 year old pissed of Marine" OOh Rah! Privileged to know a few!

      MartinChartier Interestingly some of the gentlest people I know are Marines. You just don't want to piss them off. :)

      bratdawn Don't I know...my foster son was in Iraq for 18 mos...came home a very changed person. The ones I know from VN are the same way..you just have to watch the fuse.

      JuJu My son is a gentle Marine, but I wouldn't want anyone to piss him off... Actually, he is an ex-Marine, but once a Marine, ALWAYS a Marine.

      Roberta I am sorry Alexa. it is so hard to let a pet go. Especially one that has seen you through so much. She sounds real special, I am sure she is with you right now, she would not leave without being there for you when you need her most.
