The following is fm Ed Bauer an ASA Korean Vet 1951-53 & I'm passing it along fm an old Bad Aibling & RVN friend, Warren Noble, who replaced me as the 1SG of the 335th RRC in Can
Tho. Messages on days of
rememberance are so much more poignant when they are of a
personal nature. Reflect, remember & pray for all of our
vet's who have contributed so much; & for the vet's to come
who will continue that heritage of heroism & sacrafice so nec
to insure the freedoms so many take for granted: "My two
older sisters & myself had a special meaning for that 11 Nov
1918. Our Dad was severely wounded in France and was evacuated to
the states, Cape May NJ for further hospitalization. This is
where he met our mother to be. He recovered ok & started
farming in his home state of WI. He contacted
TB in mid 1920's fm mustard gas burns. He was released a few times that resulted in my self & my brother, in 1929 & 31. From 31 onward he was a patient in a VA Hosp in Northern NY. We saw him once a year for 10 days at Xmas time. He missed a couple of these due to relapses. The VA released him permanently in 1951. He lived on until 1975. My mother had moved back to Phila area after his first relapse. So Memorial Day & Veterans Day are very special to us. - Ed Bauer

Good news. One of the address/tel.
numbers you supplied me with was in actuality our Doug Potts. He
called back last night and we chatted for some time. He knew
nothing about the September Reunion, but did supply some more
names of people in Det 27during the '62-'64 period. His e-mail is
"firstname.lastname@example.org" and his street address is 10404
White Birch Drive, San Diego, CA 92131. Phone 858/271-5776 and
7(answering machine). He confirmed Jay Hunter's death of a heart
attack 5+ years ago while officiating a basketball game. We
discussed his Feigner time, and if he can share some of that, it
will be of great interest to you, for sure. I told him that you
would undoubtedly be contacting him with info, requests, etc. He
seemed interested. I will also be corresponding with him. In
addition, Gary Jorgensen mentioned not receiving his shipment of
apparel. I have to add my name to that list- I have not received
the hat or shirt that I ordered. I hope that it was not in the
same shipment. See you, Ted Midtaune, Livermore, CA., SP4, 05H,
Det 27, 62-64 [Thanks Ted & welcome aboard Doug. I w/b
sending you a email soon. Ted-Your items were shipped the same
time as Jorgy's & will have to re-order the Det 27 hat &

IN RESPONSE: Mike (or
any other ditty bopper) doesn't fish; remember that the reel
makes those little clicking noises, not to mention the fact that
when the bait first hits the water it sounds like a
"dit" and when the line plays out, it resembles a
"dahhhhhhh"! Actually, when I was in Turkey and not
having anything better to do since the Bulgarian Army wasn't very
active or large, I just sat there under my tent and dreamed up
inane reasons not to become a ditty bopper. Who wants to live up
in Lac du Fondue, WI; Indiana, PA; or work at Jorgensen's Air
Lines, AK (did you get a good look at Gary's puddle jumper hidden
in the weeds?). ..-..-.....----- Mixie
Guys - I'm still laughing, having read Clark's analysis of Mike's move to Fon Du Lac............ This did more to lift my spirits than any of this ASA Reunion has. Bravo, Clark!
Mike, I thought you took this rather well. Good for you. I couldn't help thinking that this was the kind of humorous nonsense that kept a lot of us going while stationed in Turkey. It brought back a lot of good memories.
Clark: you are so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o bad!

There are tons of little
programs that do all kinds of neat stuff that pop up all over the
place around the holiday season. Games such as Elf Bowl and
Snowcraft are fun and great time wasters. There are also programs
that put little elves on your desktop, lights around the edges of
your screen, and so forth. Most of these programs are harmless;
others are not quite so kind. When you receive one of these
little "gifts" from
a friend urging you to play, take a moment and run a virus scan on the file before you open it. Otherwise, you might find an unpleasant surprise inside this package.- Michael Vincent

There were two old geezers living
in the backwoods of the Ozarks.... Rufus and Clarence.
They lived on opposite sides of the river, and they hated each other. Every morning, just after sun-up, Rufus and Clarence would go down to their respective sides of the river and yell at each other.
"Rufus!!" Clarence would shout. "You better thank yor lucky stars I cain't swim.... er I'd swim this river and whup your butt!!"
"Clarence!!!" Rufus would holler back. "You better thank YOUR lucky stars that I cain't swim... er I'd swim this river and whup your skinny butt!!!"
This happened every morning for twenty years.
One day the Army Corps of Engineers came along and built a bridge. Still, every morning, every day for another five years this yelling across the river goes on, even with the bridge.
Finally....Mrs.Rufus had had enough. "Rufus!" she squallers one day. "I cain't take no more!! Ever day for 25 years you've been threatenin' to whup Clarence. Well, there's the bridge......have at it."
Rufus thought for a minute. Chewed his bottom lip for another minute. "Woman!" he declared, snap-ping his suspenders into place, "I'm gonin' across that thar bridge and I'm gonna whup Clarence's butt!!!"
He walked out the door, down to the river, along the riverbank, came to the bridge, stepped up onto the bridge, walked about halfway over the bridge, looked up.....TURNED TAIL AND RAN SCREAM-ING BACK TO THE HOUSE, SLAMMED THE DOOR, BOLTED THE WINDOWS, GRABBED THE SHOTGUN AND DOVE, PANTING AND GASPING, UNDER THE BED!!!!!
"Rufus!" cried the Missus. "I thought you wuz gonna whup Clarence's butt!!!"
"I was, woman, I was!!" he whispered.
"Rufus!" cried the Missus. "What in tarnation is the matter?"
"Well," muttered the terror-stricken Rufus, "I went to the bridge...... I stepped up on the bridge..... walked halfway over the bridge.... looked up....."
"And?" asked Mrs. Rufus, breathless with suspense.
"And," continued Rufus, "I saw a sign that said, 'Clearance, 13 feet, 6 inches'. He ain't never looked that big from the other side of the river!!!!!!!"

An insurance man visited me at home to talk about our mortgage insurance. He was throwing a lot of facts and figures at me, and I wanted to follow as best I could, so I told my 6-year-old son to run and get me a pad. He came back and handed me a Kotex right in front of our guest.

I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting I take a closer look.Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror - wearing nothing but a camera!
I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said, "I think I like playing with men's balls."

Nuts about You
My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of nuts. As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help. I replied, "No, I'm just looking at your nuts." My sister started to laugh hysterically, the boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

Na-na na-na na-nah!
While in line at the bank one afternoon, my toddler decided to release some pent-up energy and ran amok. I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other patrons. I told her that if she did not start behaving right now she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as threatening, "If you don't let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee last night! The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange. Even the tellers stopped what they were doing. I mustered up the last of my dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow. The last thing I heard when the door closed behind me were screams of laughter.

One of the funniest most-embarrassing-moment stories I've come upon in a long time was about a lady who picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the checker, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for all the store to hear,"PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE." That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word Tampax for THUMBTACKS. In a business-like tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom. DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER??
A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of the class was squirming around, scratching his crotch and not paying attention. She went back to find out what was going on. He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy. The teacher told him to go down to the principal's office. He was to phone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did it and returned to his class. Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room. She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his penis hanging out. "I thought I told you to call your mom?" she screamed. "I did," he said, "And she told me that if I could stick it out till noon, she'd come and pick me up."
