1965 he joined the Travis AFB 60 Aer Port CCT. Jim Jinkens, Hap Saunders, and I were the teams P304's. Hank Schaffer arrived about the same time as "Possims". His picture is elsewhere on the CCT site. I was at Osan Korea at the same time as Jim, but I wasn't in CCT, but 6021st Security Sqdn, "Skivvy Nine". We spent an afternoon together in his "fix". I can't say I will miss him....after Travis we only met that once. But, I will say I do and will remember Jim.

I knew James for a short time. I was in the process of writing his APR when the crash happened. He was full of enthusiasm & an outstanding member of the Clark AB team. In fact, he wasn't scheduled for that mission but, volunteered so another could remain home. A huge loss to the team.

Richard and I were Combat Control Teammates and good friends at Charleston AFB, SC. After we were reassigned to different bases we crossed paths again in Southeast Asia during Vietnam War. We kept in touch after our military service. He visited and stayed with my wife and I when we lived in Virginia again several years later after we moved to Pennsylvania. Our last visit where we spent time together was several years ago in Las Vegas. One of my favorite and most entertaining life long friends. RIP "Ricky!"

It would have been Richard's Birthday yesterday. Miss my Dad more than anything, Blessed to have him and the time I had with him. Never give up, never give up. That's what he left me. A fighting spirit which can't be bought or traded. RIP Dad.

Paul was my hootch mate at NKP. Came back from a TDY to Udorn and noticed his bunk was neatly made and had not been slept in. Bob Bartlett came in and informed me that Paul's plane had been shot down over Mu Gia pass the night before. Have always remembered Paul - - a good guy.

I was the chief photographer at McChord Air Force Base in the 70's. I took the two photos above. It was my honor to work with these folks.

I served with Gus at Kirtland AFB in the early 90's. His personality was infectious, I always looked forward to seeing him and on downtime listening to his stories. He and Claudia were wonderful (her and my wife were pregnant at the same time). He will be missed.

The 62nd Wing Commander, Colonel Brown assigned me to the McChord combatcontrol team as a civilian photographer in 1975. I met the then major Gordy at that time. He welcomed me to the team. He was an outstanding officer. I respected him very much. Rest in peace sir.

I took the PAST with him. Till this day I have never seen someone display the no quit attitude that he displayed. We all showed up for the swim and Tracy didn’t tell anyone that he could barely swim. He got in the pool and tried but just kept getting on the wall until the cadre would yell at him at which time he would let go and sink. After a few times the cadre td him to get out. He just kept refusing. He must have drank 5 gallons of pool water that day. He eventually had to listen... Read more

He got in the pool and tried but just kept getting on the wall until the cadre would yell at him at which time he would let go and sink. After a few times the cadre td him to get out. He just kept refusing. He must have drank 5 gallons of pool water that day. He eventually had to listen and got out. Because of his heart and his no quit attitude he was allowed to come in the program as a casual and train until the class started. We all worked with him but is was not to be. He was offered another recycle and stayed around 4 more months. He did learn to swim enough to make it to week 4. However, as many remember, week 4 is when underwater confidence starts and the sharks (cadre) came out to play. He was quickly removed from the course. I lost track of Tracy after the OL-H but i was, and still am, reminded of his never quit spirit. Obviously, he continued to train went back to the INDOC course and graduated a few years later. He never quit on himself. He never said the words.
