lemons, You being an Air force man is probably why you play along side Jim White. I played baseball with him on the 1970 Rhein Mien Rockets baseball team. Looking forward to seeing him again at the TOC.I was an Air Passenger Specialist 1967 to 1971 in the USAF. Thanks Harry NV FORCE 55s

birdie,
Jim is a great guy and a better outfielder than he will admit. I played fast-pitch softball at RAF Lakenheath, England while I was there from 1965-68. We'll see you at The TOC. Mel

Mel, Hardest came that I ever played was fast pitch softball played one year 1969 in the service. By the hardest I am referring to games that I played well and baseball was my sport. Thanks Harry

We use to kill time between operations and targets playing any kind of ball we could. Usually using an M16 as a bat, holding the barrel and use the stock to hit empty shell casings or rocks.
M16 wasnt nearly as hot as a Miken, unless you turned her around and fired it. The it came close. But the M60, now there was a bat!! =)

Field Wireman, but my ears kept me out of vietnam or any loud zones in 1972. For the life of me, I cannot remember anything I learned about it, either. But we strapped on the gaffs and climbed the poles at Del Mar, right on the beach by Oceanside.

One thing I have learned and know without any doubt,
I love all of my families, the ones of blood, the ones I bled and served with, those that have served and the ones I now play with and against.
Remember Our Veterans, Remember Our Brothers!

MOS 11B. I spent my time in the 3rd Infantry Battalion at Ft Myer, va. I buried folks as a member of the second platoon casket team. The rest of my tour I spent as a Tomb Guard in Arlington National Cemetary. I was very fortunate, as most 11 Bravos were in Viet Nam.

US Coat Guard--True story--I had the deck watch from mid-night to four the night of the Cuban missile crisis. The
Cost Guard is small and all of our ships have real, full, captians on them. We were dock at Mobile, Al. Our ship was 255 feet long and painted white with a red stripe on it. We had
one 3" gun which we had not used in the
two year that I had been on board.
We got a top secret, coded, message that we should stock up for 3 months at sea and put to sea with in six hours. As it turned out there were no Navy ships in the Gulf or the area and our captain was senior man in the area. Coat Guard, at that time, went to sea for 30 day, 60 day max. If we had done what we were told we would have sunk at the dock. By the way we had a total of 82 men on board, we had 12 M1's but no amo.. Do you feel protected

My brother was Navy 60/69 he was on the Enterprise & Kittyhawk I think, also stationed at Whidbey Island and finished his career at Miramar. He was an F4 mechanic.
Hombre,
One of my team mates was an Air Force Honor Guard, also in Washington. Mostly funerals.
You were extremely fortunate to stay state side as an 11B, there were a few in VN that never saw the field, but were made drivers or cooks, etc.

MAN was I off, here,s the correct info on my brother,His words to me:
"You missed it only slightly. I served on the USS Constellation CVA 64 in VF-142 and USS Ranger CVA 61. I met up with VF-142 on the Connie in Subic Bay Phillipines October 1964 and stayed on Her until returning home on February, 1965. I was on the Ranger for a thirty day cruise in 1967 out of Alameda, CA (San Francisco). I flew aboard the Constellation on a mail plane. That was an experience."
Hey I was close! =)
