    It all started for him at VMI back in 1978

    Well, I'm packed - borrowed "nice" clothes from the neighbor and will take off in the morning. Leaving a couple extra hours for traffic

    Looks like your brother and my cousin were in the same outfit in Myrtle Beach, SC back in the 80s!

    Later,

    I didn't get a good shot of them... he did have a list of what they meant.

    Hey Dan, I used to run down to Myrtle Beach to visit my brother a bunch. He got in a little hot water showing me and my wife his plane without setting it up before hand (ie. armed guards - it was good "practice" for them, I guess).

    Thanks, and yea... I'm glad I went, too. Had a good parking spot... even if I did forget to turn the car off

    So my brother's speech thanked everyone under the sun... except the family and especially the wife!!! BG Neal reminded him of that fact... was pretty funny hearing him backpedaling.

    He flew A-10's for 27 years and I'm pretty sure, if he could afford it, he would have paid them to do it. His last flight was last Nov. in the same plane that he took his first flight in...
