    Been a long year!

    I just got off the chartered plane late yesterday evening, and have enjoyed my first full day of good ole American air.
    I’m still getting unpacked, settled in, and drinking a few cold beverages. :eek:

    Time went fast, it’s hard to believe that this time last year I was getting on a plane headed back to the desert. I am just getting to old, or maybe to out of shape, for this young mans game.

    Not everyone that made the initial trip made it back, and we lost some terrific men.

    God bless the soldiers who give us the freedom we enjoy.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Glad you made it home. As for the wiser yes I would say you are but the age comes twice as fast.

    As for the good men lost. I went thru that back in 65 and 66 and still think of them almost daily.


    Welcome home and thanks for the job well done.

    Glad you made it back safely, Paul. It's always sad to think of the ones who didn't, but that's part of the deal when we sign on.
