  1. I have to return to my first love. when I became interested in old cars at 12 years of age I loved them all but it's always been big and brass for me .probably a 6 60 Thomas Flyer.

  3. I guess I am living in a different world than so many vets. it's been over 50 years since I stepped onto the tarmac at El Toro. Not one time since have I felt even the slightest bit of disrespect from anyone regarding my service. I have always received the finest treatment from the VA. Never been spit on or called a name and this was mostly in liberal SoCal, no less
  4. Every year,it's the same old rant from the Vietnam vets. ,we didn't get our parade ".guess what? There was no VJ Day andJohnny didn't come marching home. We came back a plane load at a time. of course there was no fanfare. my folks drove from north Hollywood to El Toro MCAS and picked me up and drove me home. Pretty good parade I think. My GF and now my wife of 50 years waited at the homecoming ever. Doc 1st Battalion 1st Marines RVN 67 68 Still glad to be back in the world
