Comments about the web site: Brenda and I are living in Pennsylvania now, commuting to DC. Couldn't stand being that close to town. Plus the house is worth the drive. Trout river out the back door and Whitetail Ski Resort 5 minutes out the front door. I am muddling around the Pentagon "Big Pond". Interesting, but not my favorite job. Spending lots of time with the grandkids. Give a call if you are out this way....(301) 275-9236

Comments about the web site: Hi Mac, I was glad to see in your meanderings that my old buddy Ron Holder has been found but too bad about the broken leg. During the holidays I was on the phone with Max Goodman and as we were tripping down memory lane, Ron's name came up and neither of us had heard of his whereabouts in years. I'm still having a hard time picturing him on a farm but I guess a lot of us ended up different than we thought we would. In talking with some of my old teammates, many of them were surprised to find out that my second career was working in the state prison system, they all thought I'd be behind bars instead of holding the keys. In any case, full retirement is not difficult to adjust to. Judy and I are in our 8th year of living the lazy life and we're not tired of it. We're home in Alaska right now after spending 3 months in Yuma during the fall and we'll fly back down next month and spend the spring there and drive back up in May. No pictures to send but I thought I'd check in with you.

Comments about the web site: Good talking to you Mac...just to clarify Chad Giesige sustained a severe head injury on Jan 30, the day of the Iraqi national election. His condition is no longer critical, but he has yet to fully regain consciousness. He remains at Walter Reed getting the best care possible from a team of neurologists, all of whom have unfortunately treated this injury many times since OEF/OIF began. The unit continues to keep a family rep on site, and we ask that those who desire to visit coordinate through our unit ops section, comm 910-243-0171, or DSN 383-0171. All indications are that this will be a lengthy recovery process for Chad. We ask that you keep him, his family, and his fiance Nicki in your thoughts and prayers.

Comments about the web site: Recently PCSed (Jun 04) to Randolph AFB, HQ AETC trying to fill the shoes of TB (Chief Brown). Entered CCT in 1983. Stationed at hurby until 1988. Selected for duty with the 24 STS and spend 10 years there. 1998 the family and I PCSed to Kadena for 3 years and then it was back to the 24 STS as the Chief-great job! Now I'm here in staff land. I have two daughters (10/7) and married for nearly 19 years. Looking at retirement in 2009, Oklahoma City. I can't tell you how motivating it is to see these young troops coming in wanting to be CCT, I still have the gas to PT with them and its the funnest thing I do here. Thanks for what you do Mac, Whoya CCT!

Comments about the web site: Hi Mac, just found this site....didnt even know anything like this existed. I was on the Norton CCT in 76, 77, and 78. Bill Frankenberger was my last NCOIC before I got out. Just read about his bout with cancer, hope he's still beating it. Some of my teammates were John Koren, Mitch Bryan, John Bringolf (sp?), Archie Hickerson, Bill Massengill, Patrick O'Neal, Dimitri Milonovich, Ed Pound, Roy Jordan, Floyd Smith and several other clear faces that I just cant put a name to right now. Looking at this site and seeing dozens of old friends I havent seen in almost 30 years is a kick in the ass. I'd like to get in touch with some of them but dont know where to start. Is there a list with names and addresses on it somewhere? Also, I have a name to put on the memorial list. Larry Hicks was killed in a car wreck in 1984 in Bastrop, La. I think JK and Mitch knew him, maybe you did too. Anyway, its late and I need to get off here. Great site and hope to talk to some old friends soon....thanks......Rick

Also, he is listed in the acknowledgments of Jack Brehm's That Others May Live. Any assistance in locating him would be greatly appreciated - or any other avenues in my search. Thank you, Michael

Comments about the web site: Mac My email server is down for maintenance today, so I am using this to send you a request for assistance. I need a good color and a good black & white beret emblem (high-resolution drawings on black background works best) that I can cut and paste into a project that I am working. Everything that I can find on the web is poor quality or has other graphics attached. Can you help? Gene Adcock

Comments about the web site: Mac, What a smile starter. You couldn't wipe this grin off my face with sand paper. It sure brings back super memories of the best people on the planet. I'd give a lot to be able to either go back and do it again, or be able to jump in on the fun going on now. I'll bet the guys are tired, and having a great time. There's no greater feeling than employing all of your skills and training in the most challenging conditions, and the guys are this countries greatest defenders. I hope they realize how much we appreciate them, and their families. I'm jealous, and full of respect. Keep up the great site Mac, I hope I can get over to Columbia to see your set up. See ya later. Randy Carmichael

Comments about the web site: It was so great to meet everybody. We felt so much love and support and could see how close a group this is. Derek always talked about that. He talked about how great it was to attend the 50th. I shared with some of you that he wrote, "I always wanted to know what I would look like when I retire." It felt good to laugh. I'm saying that even though I "got coined" and insulted in the CCT gift store. Tell that nice man that I did fit into those small shorts. Oh leg anyway. Thanks for the laughs and love. Cheers to you!

Comments about the web site: Thank you to everyone for making me still feel a part of the CCT family even after Marty passed away. You had a special place in Marty's heart and mine too. Thank you again, Mike, for keeping up the website. Marty would come into my office periodically, and I would log him on to the website so he could "catch up". Thanks again also for the link and write-up about Marty. The family appreciated that so much. Take care...Jana Martinez, wife of Marty Martinez

Comments about the web site: I am the Mother of Casey Crate KIA 5-30-05 in Iraq. I was so happy to be able to attend the CCA 2005. I did not realize that this was such a tight knit group until I heard many of the stories from the last 5 decades of CCT's. I was overwhelmed with stories from the past and ever so grateful to meet several of Casey's "buddies" that he spoke of so often. I learned alot about my Son that not even I realized. Debbie Argel and I finally gave up at Coasters trying to extract "secrets" from these guys. Not even straight shots were working! God Bless all of you and thanks for serving our country!!!

Comments about the web site: Hey guys, just looking around the net for some CCT videos and stumbled onto this site...I'm 18 and live in Minot,North Dakota...I'll be leaving in April for basic (might be sooner with quick ship) and then down the CCT pipeline. I can't wait to be part of the CCT community. If anyone has a way they could get me a recent video of CCT training I'd appreciate it, all my recruiter has is an old VHS from the 80's and its only 9 minutes long. Anyways take it easy. Levi

Comments about the web site: You know I really have some issues to confront. I was told that I have to stop getting dogs from the City pound. The Policeman said that they aren't classified as food in the States. Is that part of the Home Security Act?

Comments about the web site: Mac, another year,still didn't make it to the reunion. Just a update on Todd. He busted up his left shoulder in BUDS, two months ago, yesterday the NAVY finial operated on it. on a scale of 1-4, 4 being the worst, the NAVY SEAL top surgs. said it was a 4 1/2. Good news tho, they did good work, he should be 100% after 6-8 month of rehab. He's happy, they want him back into the SEAL/BUDS program so bad that he was approved a slot as soon as he is physically able. I'll let you know. TH

Comments about the web site: Mac, the "news of my death are just a touch exaggerated". Run a Paraloft in Colorado and am a fulltime instructor with the US Navy's Jump School in San Diego (still doing 800-1000 jumps per year). Have had a part in training not only the SEALS but CCT out of AST (and quite a few PJs from Albque as well). Feel blessed to be able to continue to contribute to CCT in some small way.

Comments about the web site: Just checking the latest postings and lamenting (again) not making the reunion this year. Damn, I missed seeing you guys! Notice some names I haven't seen in a long time have signed in, such as Jerry Quintus and Rex Kenyon. Hey Rex, still got your Big Red 1 patch? I remember you catching some shit over that at Lockbourne. And Jerry, how about that sassafrass tea I made in the field at CCT School? Amazing what you find in the woods digging slit trenches. I got a good idea... let's ALL go to the reunion next year.
