  1. Read in another article that he was 3 months shy of retirement. RIP Wish the news channels would take some time away from all they crap they report, but never focus on the good. Guess that is being too optimistic. Hours and hours of bashing of people or Cosby trial coverage and never a peep about something so noble.
  2. Sent txt yesterday to cell phone. In Leyte now, did you receive?
  3. Pictures from the football team this year with the Shark's Teeth uniform.
  4. The Air Force Academy football team honored the Shark's Teeth this year with their football uniform. Beat both Army and Navy this year. Thought you guys would enjoy the pictures. Nothing like seeing a "Hog" lighting up the enemy with the Teeth Showing! http://news.sportslogos.net/2016/08/15/air-force-football-flying-tigers-sharktooth-legacy-series-helmets-awesome/ Sorry Paul, I've got a MacBook Air and tried to post the article per your instructions but wasn't able to get it to work!
  5. Colemanlee - I received your PM, did you get my response........ We are getting a new phone upon arrival and will text you in the next 2 weeks or so. Please let your wife know, I'll use my screen name so she knows it us.
  6. I wish! Got to climb all over a B-24 a few years ago, another amazing aircraft. Can't imagine flying at altitude, freezing and then having to fight off enemy planes trying to shoot you down! Whole different era of warfare that's for sure. Our Air Force pilots today can shoot something Air to Air and never even see it.
  7. Just the sound of those old planes can get your heart going.... I would love to have a ride in a P-41 or Spitfire. All engine with a couple of wings attached!
  8. Appreciate the offer! I'll keep you posted as we get closer. That's very kind of you!
  9. We were considering making a run there on the bus, but if it's trashed since Yolanda wasn't sure if it would be worth it. As you know, the memorial in Palo was devastated, can't imagine Dulag fared any better.
  10. Appreciate the offer. We own the trike, as you know not good for long rides! Do you think it's worth the trip?
  11. Appreciate the maps! Will be in Leyte in a few weeks, is it worth the trip to Dulag to see the memorial? Don't know that my butt would take the trike, so may have to go by bus. Haven't been to the site, but some of the YouTube videos look interesting. Sent some US Flags to give to the town if they want to use them on the flagpole there.....
  12. Thanks for the lead, much appreciated!
  13. Family is from Lukay, just outside of Alang Alang. I read a book about the Leyte campaign and the only skirmish in Alangx2 was between a Japanese patrol and American patrol that took place at the river where the bridge is now on the way to Jaro. Thanks ang & sam for the info above.
