I knew you had to be the guy we knew....I remember an apt off Desert Inn and a borrowed 450 Honda....Kale worked in a Phillips 66 nearby....those were some wild times...especially at the Lariat Club (later the Troubador)...figured we hit the jackpot getting stationed at Nellis, near Vegas. Those were some of the best times...glad we survived....Bill Lassiter is still alive...Cousineau was alive when I talked him on a reunion site 6 years ago. I make peace pipes etc these days...lots of friends on the Onondaga Rez etc. I have had a few health problems form some chemical exposure(s)doing well these days. I bet you have a lot of new stories...I have some myself....taught Kung Fu for over 4 decades and kicked a lot of asses in Broome County...moved here to Groton NY 20 years ago...driving a red 84 Corvette when weather to have a winter car here in the finger lakes between Ithaca and Cortland (03 Sebring LXi v6)...thinking of moving to a warmer climate or Colorado is where I can be reached...good luck Sgt "Slugger" Watrous

      I was 429th from 69-72. What was the real reason they couldn't fire the Vulcun? Surely the flightline rumors we heard were bullshit (fairing wouldn't rotate so WSO took a round in the lower back).... more
