Back in the Day

Postby Farrell, Chuck » August 20th, 2014, 7:40 am

Want to be really amused? I found three pictures of myself from back in 1968, 1969 and 1970. Go to the main screen of the GEEIA.ORG and follow the links to the 2875th photos - Historical.

Well, I certainly hope you remember me. Your were my team chief on my first TDY after arriving at the 2875th. Unfortunately we never got to take another trip together.

Hey Chuck, your photos are way cool and even though we live over a thousand miles apart, we must use the same barber as our do's are almost identical, but of course being from the South, I do mine that way to stay cool.I can't post pics on my antique computer but I urge every one else that can to do so.Johnny Garcia just sent me some using a copier from Kadena days and needless to say, they made my day.........T

Would really like to see Johnny's pictures from the Kadena days. If you can get them scanned and sent to Darrell I'll bet he'll figure out a way to get them on the site. I lost all of mine and only have my vague memories. Just now occurred to me that there was a teletype guy from Kadena who was on the job with me at Osan to install the new comm center next to the war room. Do I remember his name, heck no.

Hey guys, I may be able to get some more photos from Bob Hoots (Hooter). He is from Wa. state, and I met him in Vancouver, Wa when I was living their and he has a binder with a bunch of photos. He even has a Neko Nomad patch. He even has the original orders from tech school in Sheppard Field with both our names on it assigning us to kadena. He and I were in the same pole jockey class together. We exchange emails and phone call every now and then. Hey guys, I saw some thing about Geeia reunion on facebook. It would be awesome if we could all attend the next one, and see what we really look like. You guys have a good weekend and drive safe out there, and don't do what I would do, but if you do name it after me. If you still can!!! HA-HA-HA------

Big day today - received my first Social Security check. And started to study for a Ham Radio license. Guess I'm gearing up for retirement...

Does that mean you are offically old and not working anymore. Join the guys on the couch.

Still working but not liking it much anymore. Won't quit until I figure out what to do with myself. You thinking of going to the GEEIA Reunion next year?
