Carried many a PaveLow and many Little Birds over, but it was even sweeter bringing em back. I always wanted a ride, but never stayed on the ground long enough. I know, Freddy alway broke, but it was only at the nice locations. Funny how that worked out.
Well said! I know we'd magically break in Pisa or the French Riv on RON trips to and from the UK to the former Balkans! Never saw you guys break in the sand lot though unless it was close to the end of the month. Funny how that works. K

Chief,
That brought back memories of "Sammie's on the Island". I was active Army '84-'86 then active reserves for two more. Stationed at Fort Lee VA, we went to Eglin for field training in Aug '85 for 45 days. I was a light weight vehicle mechanic in a Field Sevice Company, we did laundry and bath, bakery and graves registration (MA). Our guys went to Gander Newfoundland to recover the bodies from that flight returning from the middle east for Christmas that same year.
Being so close to DC and no combat to support, we had a lot of ceramonial details. I did a lot of military honors funerals, no matter how many times we did them, when they played Taps it would bring a tear to the eye. I was extemely proud and honored to pay our respects to our fellow vets and there families for the services of thier loved ones.
I also had the pleasure ( responsibilty ) to carry the Army Colors in a 4th of July Parade.
Sammie's is a memory; as is Chan's (Ididn't see wither when I was up there a couple months ago). The area has changed like crazy but, it is still wonderful. I feel ya on the tear to the eye statement. I hear it in my head when I get up to Arlington when I make a homage there every year to visit my buddies (leave in about ten days for this years visit) and can feel the hair raise on my arms just thinking about it. For everyone here thankyou (especially to those still in; not everyone agrees with us being there but, we support you!)! K
