A lot of us may not know each other here, but I'll bet almost every one of us here knew George or Ed, maybe Ed's Canadian wife Mary, hardworking Lebanese immigrants who kept us fueled up at odd hours and were always welcoming GIs. Ed always felt America was the best country in the world, and he and George always treated us right.
...and though we can't meet at Marash's open 24/7 just outside Gate 4 any more, (and "650 Dog" and even the splinters of Splinter City are gone, but Building 640 continues,) if anyone organizes a mini-reunion or wants to get together informally... post it here! Or, e-mail me using the link provided. It's a while 'til October 2009.
