Comment: Sorry guys I missed the reunion, I was having back ablation the day it started. I really hared that I missed it because I had a lot to say to all of you. I was reading on line about the distinguish flying cross. My first thought was that in my opinion all crews of the 57th deserved to be awarded this. It was an Honor to serve with all of you even if it was for 6 months.

Comment: James Riemer, your response has jarred my memory. I believe the unit I was assigned prior to transfer to the 57th was the 189th. If so, it was the company I entered the country with from stateside Ft Carson, CO.
