    Pinson, Al
    I am a natural born Texan. I was born at Brooks Army Hospital in San Antonio.
    in 1953. My Dad was in the Air Force. He was stationed all over Texas at one time or the other. We came back to Alabama before I was a year old. My Dad
    loved to fish and always talked about fishing the Red River and Lake Texoma.
    He always talked about a fishing platform set up for disabled vets and how
    nice it was and how well the disabled vets were taken care of. Do any of you
    know the location of this place? Thanks
