    Greg,

    Ellsworth is a great base. When I was managing and flying the Looking Glass, Ellsworth was one of our designated alternates, so I got there fairly often. Being an old 'bomber puke' it is easy for me to be amazed that even a few fighter pilots followed you directions. Thanks for your service.

    God Bless America

    Denverpilot,

    There are a number of nights when we worked very closely with Marines. I have shot VC off tanks, and off the tops of bunkers. It was kind of special because we could hear our bullets hitting the tank or the bunker through the Marine's mike while we were talking. Our 7.62 would not penetrate a tank or bunker, but it made the VC look like hamburger.

    God Bless America
