Thank you All
Just take a look in the Site Directory at all the articles, stories, photos,
etc. that have been provided, and continue to be provided, by you folks, the
I am very happy with the way the site has grown and of the compliments,
comments and remarks, about the site. It has grown far faster than I ever
expected and this is because of the steady inflow of information I have
received. And as I am pleased to say, I have had a few comments, referring
to "Our Site", and that is exactly what I hope each one of you feel. You were
part of the operation and should be considered likewise here.
As you know, this started as just and overview of my 20 year Air Force Career.
It did not take long for the ballooning effect to take charge and dominate,
around the period the EC-47's were in operation in Southeast Asia, 1966 into
1974. This turned into a great effort to unite old friends and acquaintances

I hope this site will continue to grow and be considered to be of historical
value, now and in the future. I think that if the information continues to

noticed that almost all of the data is maintained on this web-site, not through
links to other sites. There are a few exceptions, but only a few, such as a
list of some of my favorite sites etc.. Also, there is nothing, and will be
nothing on this site that you would object to your six year old grandaughter
reading or seeing. It is my intention to keep it this way and to keep the site
up as long as I am physically able and I think I have a few more years to go.
I would also like to encourage you to bring to my attention, any errors that you find on this web-site, regardless of how small. I will do my best to correct them immediately. You can find my e-mail address at several other locations on this web-site.
Thanks, James C. (J.C.) Wheeler, MSgt Retired U.S. Air Force 1955-75
