What a total kick-in-the-head to see the same guys I flew with 40 years ago!

So, this also includes many separate hospitality suites and the usual for sale hats, pins, patches, t-shirts, & souvenirs.

Anyways - At the last Reno reunion, one of the kiosks set-up was operated by Joe Kline, who is a pretty famous aviation artist that specializes in RVN aviation prints, and who also is a former crewmember and current member of the VHCMA. For a couple of extra bucks, Joe customized my CH-47C Chinook print by adding my 213th ASHC (BlackCats) unit markings and modifying a few things on the aircraft.

I finally got it framed & hanged in my den. So here it is.
That would be me, at the left door.


Ever run across a pilot named Gerald Wayne Loyd?I believe he flew 47,s and hailed from here,Dumas,Ar.
