Hi Jim.
So glad to hear from you after so long. My gal had lived in San Diego for many years and we may get there at some point to visit. Hope life has been good to you.

Eric, How are you doing?!!! I thought you went to Korea after Ft. Devens. Did you know Dave Doring when you were in Hawaii? What are you doing now? Planning any trips to San Diego?

I was a crew chief with the 93rd Transportation Company (light helicopter - H-21C) from 1957 through 1959.

Have been out to Classic Rotors at Romaona a number of times and have talked to them at various air shows in the area. They are a great bunch of people.

I volunteered there at the March Field Air Museum from January 1997 to February 2005 and in all that time, I never saw the blades on the H-21B once, I was told by the former restoration manager that it didn't see combat and the blades would rot out in time, but now that the blades are back on the aircraft, it looks much better, my compliments to the current retoration manager and his crew for a job well done.
