Well Hoss, it's about time I tracked you down, you hide better than I do, from folks I owe money. I lost all track of you for a while, finally EIEIO filled me in on where you had gone.
Shortly after that I saw where you had posted and were stateside again, however in my normal timing I was a day late and a dollar short.
Are you back home at the ranch? How's Karen? hope she's feeling better, please tell her that her peanut gallery in PA is rooting for her all the time.
Is your old home address now a good one? Drop me a line to let me know where to get in touch.
Just got a christmas list from our sweety in Iraq, they're asking for as much talcum powder as we can muster, sooo we kicked the locals into gear and are driving Ft. Indiantown Gap crazy again, we managed to piggyback with another group, and each container will be accompanied by a pre-paid phone card. I never thought our cards from over here would be good over there, but they say they are.
Keep in touch my friend, and please tell the Wife, and Kids, that we all say thanx to you and them.
Later
Ron and Donna

Hi ya Ron. Yeah I went to Kuwait to join Wifey. Her back got to bothering her and they finely took x-rays and reaslied she shouldn't have been activated. They sent her to Walter Reed via Germany. I met her at Walter Reed and brought her home. Gonna medicaly discharge her. Anyway we are home for good now. Gonna be retired together.
The ones we left behind are still needing our help and prayers. Lets not forget the ones at Walter Reed also. That was a heart breaking experence. All those mained kids. Brought back too many memories from my Vietnam days.

Anyway thanks for all your support and prayers.

Kraig & Karen

Well then while I'm on the bandwagon, take some time and put together a list of things besides cards that the kids at Walter Reed need, and send it off to me.
I'm on a roll and hate to let the coals get cold.
We usually try to take a memorial day trip, to Arlington, then on to Reed with a couple of Vet's that we know, didn't make it this year 'cause of a death in the family.
keep in touch
Ron

What these kids need in intervention by Congress. They stay at a hotel a short distance from the hostpital. They have an hourly shuttle from the hotel to the hostpital. Here is where the problem lies. The patents have two formations a day, 7am and 4 pm. The formations are in a differant building. There is no transportation from the hotel or hostpital to the Formation area. So twice a day you see young soldiers and soldierettes making it from the hotel to the formation area. Some in Wheel Chairs, some on crutches. Some missing legs, and just trying to learn to use their artificual limbs. Seems the Army could find shuttles, or move the formations to the quarter/hospitals. The Sargent Major said it would take an act of congress to get shuttles. So there are a bunch of congressmen in Washington we can write and they can see for them selves. It tore me up when I was in a smoking section. I watch my wife find and light a cigerette for one kid who didn't have any arms. Been smoking for years, never thought it would be a problem lighting and smoking before. Don;t know what to do about such cases.
