I may be wrong about what Flt
I was on. I know I worked with TSgt Small, and Greg Davis made SSgt
while I was there, (Greg just rode around in a jeep).
It's been so
long and my memory is shot all to hell. I just read some of the
stories, and I have to agree that Keller also made me proud. He and Bo
Jangles worked a lot together, mainly because Small knew that Steele
and I weren't afraid to go into the rougher areas and actually "work
We produced several apprehensions together, and I
learned to trust his every instinct. When those ears went up and the
panting stopped, my heart would start pounding because I knew there
was something out there.
He didn't bother with "water buffalo"
and that kind of crap.
9 times out of 10, when Keller alerted on
something, you'd better take it serious. I don't think I've ever had
an adrenaline rush like the days of hunting something that could hunt
back. I've tried over the years to explain to people about some of my
experiences, but they just don't get it. It's really great to find
this site and be able to talk about the things that happened, and
somebody actually understands what I'm talking about. I'm in the
process of digging out some old photos, and as soon as I can get them
scanned I'll send them to you so you can post them if you want. I may
be wrong about being on "D" Flt, but like I said my memory
I believe Sykes was on my Flt for a while, but it seems like
he got transferred to another Flt when either he or Davis got
promoted. I can't remember if he was already SSgt before Greg got
promoted or not. Anyway, I'll try to recall some of the incidents we
were involved in and some of the people also so we can keep this thing
going, and perhaps find some more people along the way. Thanks again
for having the insight to put this web-site together Marc, because
somehow it's almost therapeutic. If you're ever in Texas stop by for a
COLD BEER and let's swap some stories.
