I'm Back!!

I got back about 10 days ago, but this is my first time back to add stuff to the site. I had my wife check every once in awhile on the sale of the CS models. I really enjoyed my time in the desert, I had a great crew and time really flew by. I attached a pic of the crew standing on the wing of the plane. I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers, it really makes what I do and being away from my family alot easier. Hopefully I can hit the site more and take my car (the coupe not CS) to some shows. I am going to a new job now that I am back, same location but new position as "Director of Operations", so I will be the number 2 guy in the squadron which hopefully will not take me away from this site too much. Again thanks to eveyone at the site, my second family.


PS - Paul thanks also for the posters...they hung nicely in my room!!

Welcome home Doug. Nice crew picture. That reminds me of a photo we had made of our F-111 outfit when I was stationed in SEA.
