Wow, what a surprise! I had to pause a second when I saw the old Bite & Strike Patch. I'm honored to join the flight. I still got my wreches around here somewhere but I still will answer to COBRA 52. Cheers (and where's my pin?)

Bruno and Bernie-where are you guys? The emails I sent came back with "undeliverable", etc. Please know that you are not alone today. We remember. Always will. And we are so happy you are still with us. It still amazes me that you two walked away from the crash..and I thank God for it. Have one on me this year, like you did last year, and will next year. It's been a pleasure to know you. With gentle thoughts, Gently

Was reading the messages and thought I would answer. Augie Bailey I think I might have known you. Did you play softball on the Lane team? As I remember there was a WO named Brister who almost struck out everone he pitched to. If you did play I was the third baseman on the team. I can't remember any of the other players without looking in the yearbook that I loaned to Bill.

Hi gang Have not posted a message in awile. But I have been reading the messages. Wish I could make the reunion this year, but I won't be out of college by then. Has anyone heard from Bill Shillito? I loaned him my Vietnam year book over a year ago and haven't heard from him since. I would like it returned if he is done with it.

Hi Mark and the 129th family, Haven't visited the site in a while. Didn't get much response from my June 1999 message on those who may have remembered me in 1971/1972. Mark, you did a great job on this site. It really makes me proud to be associated with such honorable and true Americans like yourself. My sons have visited the site and found the archive comments extremly enlightening. Thanks to all for sharing your memories and insights into this time in history. The Vietnam human experiences should and will not be lost as long as efforts like this site continue to flourish. Augie Bailey

Hi Folks, Today I recieved this warning in the mail. Might want to have a look & this is the fastest way i could see to let you ALL know Virus We have been informed of a new virus - WOBBLER. It will arrive on e-mail titled "How to Give a Cat a Colonic." CALIFORNIA IBM and AOL have announced that it is very powerful, more so than Melissa, there is no remedy. It will eat all your information on the hard drive and also destroys Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Do not open anything with this title and please pass this message on to all your contacts and anyone who uses your e-mail facility. Not many people seem to know about this yet so propagate it as fast as possible. This information was announced yesterday morning by IBM; please share it with everyone in your address book so that the spreading of the virus may be stopped. This is a very dangerous virus and there is no remedy for it at this time. Please practice cautionary measures and forward this to all your online friends ASAP. Hope you are all well, Smitty
