    Hello to everyone, I have been watching this and other military modeling forums, and am excited about
    getting back into the hobby.

    Served in Viet Nam 68 - 69, came home, got back in school, had one career in Law Enforcement, then retired, finished another in Transportation of Haz/Mat as Safety Director, now in a smaller transportation
    firm, still Haz/Mat.

    Located in Louisiana

    Yes, Shreveport is only about 70 miles from me, have been to the 8th AF Museum there many times at
    Barksdale.

    I was in England at Sturgate Air Station with my dad, 54 through 57, lived in Gainsboro Lincolnshire.

    Welcome to the forum, GG. Was in Nam myself, '66-'67, officially attached to the Commander Naval Support Activities,
    Da Nang, but found myself "loaned" to the Army Capital Division of the ROK, based at Chu Lai, which was actually
    a USMC base at Dung Quat Bay.

    Just for kicks, are you in your middle 60's ??
