My very good friend and mentor, Al "Howdy" Heers congratulating me on my last flight in the F-16A "Viper" Hey, You!!!
Thanks to all the great guys I flew with in the 194th from 1975 through 1993.
Thanks so much to all you wonderful people who worked in Maintenance, Weapons, Fuels, Egress, Admin, Security, Ops, and all the other areas on base that helped make the 22 best years of my life possible.
To Danny Clack, Mike Mendes, Tom Fishburne, Wes Deane, and John Jordan.
Rest in Peace, my brothers.

Well, it's all over.
It was a pretty good run...
Flying three classic fighters out of my home town was a pretty good gig!

After the dousing by the fire trucks General Jim Kilpatrick, the best commander a fighter pilot could ask for. A true leader and friend.
I was honored to have the opportunity to fly for, and with him.

My very good friend and my mentor, Al Heers.
You won't find a finer set of hands or a more aggressive fighter jock around.
Thank you, Al, for all you did for me.
