Tony, was I supposed to send you a copy? I rechecked my list and saw my task was to mail 5 copies and they were to go to: Rob Nearpass; Roy DesRuisseaux; John Bircher; John Cruddas and Joe Thomas. I looked thru the names they were to mail to and I don’t see your name on my list. Elder, who should have mailed to Tony Cady? Or am I having another senior moment...the like of which are striking with amazing frequency lately. wdh
((Bill - Please send Tony Cady, 35 Evergreen Dr., New Hampton, NH 03256 the Memory Book CD ASAP, Per my 040C01 email U were sked to send Tony Cady the Memory Book CD, but then something happened on your end & on 090C01 I sent Jim Harber your list to fwd the CD on, but found out that he like me don’t have a cable modem & I’m not sure what instructions I issued after that. I blv that Ray Bernstein was supposed to send Tony Cady the CD that he rx’d fm Bill Bender, but not sure; however, TO DATE I HAVE RX’D only two CD’S back which indicates that the last vet on each of the listings did not get the CD or might it be true that the ‘old’ saying,”U CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER, BUT U CAN’T MAKE HIM DRINK” is true in this case.

Subj: RE: 2002 Reunion info
Got your message. Read all the info you were sending. I have to get a computer in my house so I can get more
personal stuff. I am starting to remember some of the names from he E-mails. I ran into a retired NSG guy at Ft Dix
a month ago. He flew in the EC 121 flights out of Danang that I use to meet when Iran the courier detachment from
the 138th Avn Co. He had a Danang patch on his jacket with “69” on it. I asked him where he was there and he
actually flew some of the missions, but was stationed with the Naval group at the airport. He thinks he remembers me and the 138th people. My nephew got married in N. Carolina over the Labor Day weekend. His wife’s father was there
also in 69 at the Marine Air Wing next to the 138th on the runway,. Small world. Well I’ll be in touch. Say hello to Patty and the young adults (can’t call them kids anymore).

Subj: How to Achieve 103%
We have all bcen to those meetings where someone wants more than 100%. Well, here’s how you do that. Here’s how you can achieve 103%. First of all, here’s a little math that might prove helpful in the future.

How does one achieve 100% in LIFE? Begin by noting the following.
IF: A=l;B=2~C=3:D=4;E=5;F=6;G=7;H= 8;I=9;J=10;K=11;L=12;M= 13;N=14
O=15;P=16;Q=17;R=18;S=19;T=20:U=21;V=22;W=23;X=24;Y=25;Z=26
Then:
HARD WORK= 8+1+18+4+23+15+1811 = 0n1y 98%
Similarly,
KNOWLEDGE= 11+14+1523+12+5+4+7+5 = Only 96%

But interesting (and as you’d expect),

ATTITUDE= 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
... This is how you achieve 100% in LIFE.

But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT TO NOTE (or REALIZE), is
BULLSHIT= 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

So now you know what all those high-priced consultants, upper management, and motivational speakers really mean when they want to exceed 100%.

gH, My week off is over and I’m back to work mids so I can catch up. I sent Todd Lund a letter but have not gotten a response. I sent CDs to Dick Jones. Dwayne Modisette & Rich Pietrowiak along with a letter informing them of reunion in Hershey next Sept. I sent them your email adr for a bio so hopefully you will get a response. I told them that I am planning on attending and I would get them Depends, walkers, Geritol or whatever “old” geezers need. I'm going ......

would be great if we could find John Randall. I think he was from West Virginia and played football for three years at the U of Kentucky until he had knee injuries. Same as Joe Namath, funny how John was ok to enlist but Namath was 4f. Has everyone received the memory book now? I am still waiting for the hat, sweatshirt and tee shirt. I got the badge right away so hope nothing has been lost in the mail. Gary Jorgensen

Pooh. No retort to the Bulgarian Monterey Mary's comment? Come on fellows, let's hear it from the squirrels in T/A, or, have you all gotten old and crusty and lost your sense of humor? Speaking of squirrels though, I always thought the ditty boppers were supreme squirrels. Take Mike Findley (05H DET 4-4) for instance. Here's a fellow who loves Chicago and the Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks and yet he exiled himself to an Indian Reservation outside of Fond du Lac just to get away from all those noises in the Big City that sounded like dits and dahs. I read one of his email messages & he said he left his beloved Chicago because he was trying to find all the hidden messages in the clickety clacks of the EL & the squeaks of his neighbor's bedsprings, the static on his Telly & the roar of the traffic on 295. Must have driven him absolutely bonkers to move all the way to Fond du Lac. Now, I hear tell that he no longer sleeps on bed springs; rather a cot piled with straw & to keep those pesky squeaks of his skin on one leg rubbing against his other leg, he now lathers himself up in bear grease before donning his "jammies"! The reason he listens to the CHICAGO BEAR games on his transistor radio late at night is to drown out the whistles from his lady friend's nose, which sound ominously like dits & dahhhhsssss. Lord only knows how he masks the friction noises at copulation so he doesn't worry excessively about "hidden" meanings of the dits & dahhss in that exercise. The crickets up yonder in Wisconsin also bother him immensely so he had his igloo sound proofed. I wonder how many other ditty boppers have left the hustle and bustle of big city dits and dahhssss to escape to the solitude of the hinterlands? I wonder if Brother Taggert (05H DET 27 & 4-4) has ever written up a psychology treatise on the mental havoc caused by ordinary folks learning the ins and outs of dits and dahhhssss? Ain't it grand what the mind can conjure up after a shot or two of Slivovitz though I can't find Bulgarian Plum Brandy; I have to make do with Croatian Slivovitz! - Mixie the Webster Bulgarian
[[Except for Ted Midtaune comparison of the Bulgarian work sked to that of Special Services, no one has mentioned a word about Mixie's R&R while in Turkey.

Dearest Clark, Firstly, Fond du Lac is quite a ways away. Our nearest casino is Lac du Flambeau. The squeaks, squawks, whizzes, dits, bangs, whirls are all around! My main problem is that I need good T/A & C/A people for this operation. If I could find those, we could set-up Operations in an old delapidated barn or out-house. We could put our antenna field in a potato patch and tell everyone it's a new irrigation system! We could tie directional antenna w/battery packs to deer & use them for RDF! I need help for this mission! Why do U assume that Phil doesn't hear the dits, too??????( Classified Non-Person)\

Guys, None of the CD’s I’ve received work on my computer. One will not open @ all, & the others come-up as computer programming giberish. Mgr. @ work put one on ‘puter there & it worked. We’re trying to figure how to get it on my ‘puter or, at least, how I can have it to read @ my liesure. Mgr. is suggesting a whole new program for this ‘puter. Sent one on to Norm Frickey, which he did receive. Glad to hear other guys are having problems; misery & company, ya’ know. From what I saw, running through the 85 pages in 3 minutes, you guys did an exceptional job. I know that it had to be many hours of work; it IS appreciated. Mike Findley

You’re absolutely right. The view coming into Pittsburgh from either the Squirrel Hill Tunnels or the Liberty Tunnels
(They call them the Liberty Tubes out there) are breathtaking. I was born and raised in Washington, Pa, 25 miles south of Pittsburgh. Western Pa is a different lifestyle from my home in New Jersey. Although I’ve lived in New Jersey since 1971 l’m still a western Pa. guy at heart and root for my Steelers every chance I get. My son, daughter-in-law amid two grandchildren live in Canonsburg, birthplace of Perry Como, about 15 miles from Pittsburgh. I love the “Burg” but only get into it a few times a year since it’s seven driving hours
from my current home. If anyone out there is planning to pass through Pittsburgh and want to spend a few hours — E mail me and I tell you about the good places to eat and sites to see. DT

Elder.
I’ve seen the Fonda thing before. While not a fan of “Hanoi Jane” I had to see what information I could find on this e mail and went to http://www.snopes2.com Typed in Jane Fonda and a very good article on this appeared. I’m sure we all remember the AA gun picture but I had forgotten some of the other things she said and did even upon the POWs return. While some of the stuff in the e mail isn’t accurate there are some other things that I found truly disturbing. Now if I see that post office getting a nickel tax for each e-mail my day will be complete.
