Comments about the web site: Comments about the web site: A year's past; we've had some good times and we had some bad, but through it all, we've had each other and the support shown for those we love has made us stronger.   I join my friend, Bill Frankenberger, and tell all to "LiveStrong!" as my CCS Classleader, David Wilson has defied the odds and continues to live life as if he's dying, while Dave McCracken continues his battle.  SgtMacsBar Caribbean Cruise was fantastic and if you weren't able to join us, you can check out the excitement at CCT Photo Gallery 45   My favorite times this year were shared with you and I hope you were able to make it to the reunion.  Please put Veterans Day weekend on your calendar for the 2006 reunion.

As we all get older, we realize life is limited and what you put off for another day may be too late.  We lost a lot of good people last year and this year won't be any different.  SgtMacsBar mission is "To Bring Us All A Little Bit Closer" and I need your assistance to complete the mission.  Without you, SgtMacsBar would cease to exist.

Dick Sigman's death is a great loss to CCT and SgtMacsBar is built around his dreams. Dick had the foresight to start the Combat Control Association which is the backbone of our Brotherhood.  The CCA continues to bring us together yearly and I ask all of you to give Larry Lower and the CCA all of your support.   Dick's dreams live on and SgtMacsBar supports those dreams through your memories......... Send pictures!

Comments about the web site: I stumbled across this web site a few weeks ago. The pictures brought back a lot of memories. Those were the 'best days of my life' at the 1723rd SOCCT & the 23rd STS. Junior Anderson & (Dr.)Bo Bowling are the only people I have kept in touch with, thanks to their phone calls. Today I am living in south western New Mexico in a small town called Deming. Thanks for such a great web site.

Comments about the web site: Hey Mac, just wanted to check in for the new year. Last year actually turned out to be a pretty good year, guess my life sort of stabled out. (may even be getting married soon myself....jeez, did I just say that?) Anyway, think I got on here for the first time last March and since then have talked to a lot of old teammates...Bill Frankenberger, Roy Jordan, John Koren, Ed Pound, Archie Hickerson, Pat O'neill and more. Still looking for Gene Brown, ex Special Forces, came over to USAF/CCT in 1976, I think, then went to either Charleston or Pope. Anybody know where he's at? Good site, keep up the good work....Rick

Comments about the web site: Compadre's! I am alive and well! Kay and I just moved back to the Florida panhandle area three weeks ago; living in Niceville, FL. For the past nine years we lived in the Rochester, NY, finger lake region. A great place to live but dam cold during those eight long winter months! I believe during the winter I was the lone Mexican in Western New York! As for the family, Kay and I have been married for 39-years! Hoo-yah! Our oldest son, Lance, who was a CCTer with the 24th STS, retired from the AF! I know many of you that have know Lance since he was a young boy must feel as old as I do! :) Our other boys Mike, Toby and David live in the Ft. Walton Beach area too, along with our seven grandchildren. Our youngest son, Rocky or as Craig Brotchie calls him--'The Rock', lives in NY. We are looking forward to see many friends who live along the Emerald Coast. FYI: I no longer work for Harris RF Comm. I now work for 'McDowell Research', a small company out of Waco, TX, selling power supplies for Manpack radios, power amplifiers and configuring a number of DOD customer unique communication transit cases, base stations and comm pallets. My customer base will be SOF and 3/4 of the AF. While employed with Harris, I once again worked for my old CCT supervisor and good friend, Nick Genes (CMSgt Ret)! A great mentor and one hell of a sales man! We had the best dam sales force at Harris RF Comm! Hoo-yah! He and I left Harris within two weeks of each other. We just needed a change. Nick and Wanda needed to get back to the Black Hills of SD. I needed a warmer location! Kay and I hope to run into many of you downrange. Stay healthy! Hoo-yah! TONY and Kay

Comments about the web site: Mac, It's been a long (Long, Long, Long)time since I signz the book. Still kickin', you already know that Sheila and I are planning on visiting either on our way or on the way back from Corpus Christi in April (leaving WI April 1). A lot depends on the Wx. I must be getting old, I actually haven't ridden much this year (I believe if you live in WI and ride a MC, you have to ride in the snow and winter), it's been mild but the Beemer is just patiently waiting for me to get off my ass. Sheila had back surgery before we got married in Nov. and she gets pissed if I take the scoot out without her. You know, but any of the guys who might be interested don't, I BECAME "GRAMPS" ON 2/15/'06. Let's see now,....... I'm now Roger (RD) D. ("OldDog") "Gramps" Dumbshit, AssHole James. Yeah that pretty much covers it. Seriously, I am humbled by what I hear about the guys nowadays, and I am grateful to you beyond measure, for all you do in keeping us together. "Love Ya, Man!!!"

I'm USAF, but not CCT (couldn't volunteer for Indoc without depth perception), but I thought I'd drop note to let you know that I enjoyed looking through your site.

Combat Controllers and all in the Special Tactics community have done an outstanding amount to further the warfighting capabilities of the USAF over the years, and it was wonderful to see so much of that history on your pages, in addition to the current contributions of these warriors.
Thank you; we'll all be thinking of those fallen on Memorial Day.

I was close friends with CCT in Nam at 8th APS, in particular TSgt Tom K., MSgt Floyd Loveland, and others. Ran with, drank with them. 1969 & 1971-1972. Went to ATC school afterwards then applied for CCT. After ATC went TDY to Benning for Jump School but then was medically taken off flight status and back to old career track. Helped send guys & equipment for Oct 73 Israeli war. . Applied for early out in Palace Chase months later. I still miss it. Am writing fiction works on CCT and am nonfiction published author, former cop, lawyer of 24 yrs, and teach at univ & colleges nearby in San Diego area. Would like to hear from the 8th APS CCT guys.
I hope to write a CCT history book and am looking for 8th APS CCT guys to support and back me on that project. Also am teaching a "war-time and combat memoir writing class" at Cal State Univ. Will be offering it free on-line very soon. The Harlequin CCT books crack me up - great work by them. Heard Floyd died in '92.

Mac, I was at the CCS graduation and I'll sign your guest book. I would of signed it there but I couldn't get you to put the shots down long enough to show me where it was at brother! Me and Eddie Howard are receiving those scurvy dogs to AST on 10OCT, I'll pass on the link to the guestbook. I'm sure they just forgot it trying to drink down that $1,000 tab. By the way, the secret code that night at the bar to get in on the CCT tab was "Some Shit". It was nice to get to meet your "better half" at the graduation. Thanks for all you do brother and keep on link us new guys up with the legends!  EOM    SK

Hey Mac, Consider me back in the fold. I have been in Texas and Louisiana working with Wackenhut during the Katrina, Rita efforts. Just got done reading your update on fallen brothers. I am so sorry to see that the list has grown so much since I last checked. Richard Karman and I served together at Forbes. My heart goes out to his family and all the other family's of those we have lost. I talked to K. B. Duncan a few months ago after 36 years. We found each other in part because of your website. I still talk with Greg Harmon and Art Lawrence from time to time and visited with Art and Ruby and their family last year. Keep up the great work Mac, we need you! .. Airborne, Jim Justice Jr.

Hey! Bible Update=He's doing ok....still handsome. Has staph infection in foot but luckily is a treatable strain. The rest of his parts are healing well. Docs to decide tomorrow whether he needs another surgery on his ankle or gets to come home for a while so I can spoil him so more. He's in pretty good spirits though...Hey Mac...yes, he's still drooling. Love ya and hope to see you guys soon. Thanks to all who have called and wished him well. He enjoys the calls. Current # at hospital is 573-771-9478. Cell is 573-230-3457 but he hasn't figured out how to set up his voice mail so good luck with that! Talk to you all soon.

Secondly, our kids have insisted we wait until the year's out before we visit the PI. As for the reunion, hopefully next time. I'm still not over the effects of this stroke.

Sgt Mac You sat next to me at the Graduation dinner and I took a picture of your tat on your calf. Anyways sorry it took so long to say thanks for everything you do and will continue to do for my new family (CCT). Oh ya, Lt Greg Walsh was at our table too. Darn shame what happened to that guy. Breaks his leg and has been gaining weight ever since. He seems to be enjoying his new found 240+ lbs though. He was in the pool the other day for the first time and I thought Carmen from South Park was doing his beef cake impression. I know that he is reading this right now and is smiling as are you because while you are reading this a small alien has just finished making out with your hand and you know as well as I do that you enjoyed it because you are still smiling.

P.S.Thanks for the coin and the pics being on your site.

I was the first sergeant for the 24 STS from May 1999 to December 2002. It was arguably the best 3 1/2 years of my entire Air Force career. I will never forget my experiences there and the things I learned from so many guys that I believe are some of the most consummate professionals that I've ever had the pleasure of working with/for. It was a privilege being their first sergeant.

Mike, I finally went through the whole damned photo gallery.  Outstanding! I have hundreds of photos at my house in Washington. One of these days I'll send them in waves. Great memories and respect looking back at friends, the young guns and the cats before my time. It brought back great feelings looking at the photos of the trail blazers, war vets and guys who made leaders of the guys who nurtured and reinforced mind over matter, teamwork, pride, respect and never say die brotherhood for and with the guys who earned the right to be called CCT and throughout their stay in CCT proved it again and again. Cheers Mike...HB

Funniest shit I have read in a long, long time. We CCT have never taken anything seriously and now is not the time to start. Look at me. I'm heading for the PI just to eat dogs, cats and rats. Some shit aye. Life is a bowl of shit if you really want it to be but man, it's a hell of a lotta fun if you get off the road and travel where no man has traveled before. Mac just keep traveling the path you are forging and leave the road to those who have lost the will to travel through the boonies. I refuse to let this stroke I had stop me from enjoying life.

Merry Christmas! I woke up this Christmas morning bright and early and the first thought that entered my pea brain was of Christmas five years ago. There I really, It was a beautiful morning in Khandahar, although it was only about 20 degrees. OK, I snagged the last of the bacon, eggs and Krusteaz pancake mix from the Mud Hut stock pile and made breakfast for the guys who were still in camp. It was a glorious sunrise as I thought about my loved ones at home and the guys with me who had wives, kids and other loved ones opening presents without them. Cooking on two small burners sitting on top of Afghani propane tanks was a challenge to say the least. The reason I am writing about this is the fact it is one of my fondest Christmas memories. Watching the guys enjoy a touch of home, Christmas breakfast (of course I enjoyed it too) made me feel like I was with family and the spirit can be anywhere you are no matter how far from home. As good as the breakfast was a couple of the guys pointed out that if I would have included Bloody Mary's in the menu it would have been perfect...typical CCT!   Cheers...HB
