I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

497 RTG Reunion in two weeks!

We just finished up the last planning meeting before the second annual 497th Reconnaissance Technical Group's Colorado Springs reunion earlier this afternoon. Everything seems to be well in hand for Saturday, June 28th, at the Air Force Academy picnic area. I've promised to bring my copy of the 497th RTG "A Look Back - 30 Years on the Rhine" booklet and medallion. There will be lots of food, probably some photos, and good times with good friends. Anyone associated with the 497th, or any member of any Recce-Tech, is invited to attend. I'll be looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces.
