Get ready to smile with a Merry Christmas from the US Air Force in 1940s uniforms and dancing in the stye of the 1940s.
Jerry Newman sent this video to me and it needs to be distributed.
I totally agree with it. It pisses me off every time I see it on TV and in person,
the disrespect that players and citizens there show when the National Anthem is played.
This even includes baseball players playing for the American Legion.
Enjoy this video and please pass it on.
Good to know one coach who teaches more than the sport. Probably the most important lesson his players will ever get.
Kudos to Coach Buzz Williams, VT Basketball Coach.
Jack Fisher recently had major surgery, he is recovering slowly but surely.
Take a minute and let him know you are thinking of him please.
Also Mike Kane is in the PI for a little vacation (or something)
Bob Kinner put me in touch with a old VP40 buddy by the name of Dick Pennington.
Dick was a AM3 in my crew 2 back in the 60’s. He will be joining our group and hopefully attend the next reunion.

Senate Hearings on Agent Orange
At a recent oversight hearing held to examine the impact of exposure to toxic chemicals, particularly veterans exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War and water contamination at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, stressed the importance of having a standardized, scientific approach at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to determine which veterans should receive disability benefits based on their exposure to toxic chemicals. Also, the hearing examined efforts to expand disability benefits for veterans who served in ships offshore Vietnam, also known as the "Blue Water Navy Veterans." A video and testimonies from the hearing are available on the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs website at www.veterans.senate.gov/hearings/exposures09292015.
