I was surprised to hear from you so soon. You have got to know that a lot of years have passed since we were at Indian Mountain and I have trouble remembering faces connected to names of the people that were there. The one person that stands out the most in my mind is the old Black KP, Fred Hollins. He and I were pretty good friends. I can recall the First Sergeant but I can't recall his name. With you, I recall the name, but I can't remember the face. You'll have to send me a photo, perhaps one of you then and maybe one of you now. Oh Yes there was a fellow, A2c named Art Cruikshank, a big tall laid back, black haired fellow. His dad was a Brigadier General but you sure wouldn't guess that by being acquainted with Art. Anyway I had a visit with him down at Fort Walton Beach Florida. God only knows what year that was.
Just a bit about myself. After leaving AKA I was at Robbins AFB GA for 2 years after which I went to Yakota AFB Japan. I was there on a 3 year tour but that was cut short. My Father-in-law had a terminal illness so I was reassigned to Moody AFB GA where I retired as a MSgt in Sept of 1977. I immediately started in college at Valdosta State College in Valdosta Georgia where I graduated with a degree in Nursing. I have been employed by the hospital here in my home town of Douglas, Georgia for the past 23 years. I'm 66 years old now but I still work full time in the Operating Room. I have no desire to retire any time soon. I have a son who had been in the Air Force for 19 years now and my daughter is an RN like myself. She works just around the corner from me at the hospital.
For the record I have not had a drink since I left Indian Mountain and I haven't had a cigerette in about 15 years now and I have been in excellent health..
Well Mike I could go on and on, but I would like to hear from you again so I'll save some of it. Send me a photo. Doc Breger has posted some of my photos on his web site where I got your E-Mail address.
