these pictures were sent to me by a
c/e that I flew with...........The aircraft is 552, and the crew chief standing
next to me is Tom Freiz (not sure of the spelling) this was my first ship, and
was I proud.......the other picture of me hanging around was taken at
Duco........I was put in that position after being rolled around in the dirt
I believe that the tall drink of water in the
back ground is Emory Lord, nickname is JC........Hope these help.......
