Thanks to The Friends of
SgtMacsBar for making this and much more a reality, "Bringing
Us All A Little Bit Closer!"
Mac- I Just wanted to
personally let you know how much I appreciate all the extra effort both you & Jill went to for this "party" you
put on at your personal residence, ( certainly "above & beyond" )
THANKS from me. Also please let Judy & Tom know how much I appreciate their
support- I have never had neighbors like them- you are a lucky man to have them
for friends & neighbors. Shirley & I had a great time.
was good for me to be around old & new friends - & it was so good for
me to spend time with Bill Frankenberger- I hadn't seen Bill &
Linda since the late 60's at England AFB. I will send you the photos
I took on a disc in a day or two. I didn't take many, but maybe I got something
the official photographer missed.
will you do this week without all the excitement?
Again, Steve Williams

Good food, good
beer, great friends… What more could you ask for? Truly a great time was had by all. Many, many thanks for all that you two do to
bring us closer together. Steve Polofka
I came I saw Sgt
MAC’S Bar and it’s as good as it gets.
The food is great the stories are still the same to protect the
innocent... Jill & Mac are great host and if you go hungry or thirsty it’s
your own fault. Nick Kiraly- Fred Bozek
Tim & Nancy
Brown - Having a good time – food, golf, beer, golf, beer, etc! More later………Great Toons!! Curly Joe made the
night!! Y’all missed it if you missed this happenin’! What a great place and
great friends! Where’re the boots, it’s getting pretty deep in here….
Joe Edwards: Don’t play golf, don’t have a Harley, don’t
care about Missouri football but …what a helluva good
time! Good friends, good beer, good
band…what else could a guy want? Great
time at Sgt. Mac’s Bar!
Ralph Thomas: Outstanding hospitality, Good Bike rides.
Keep ‘em Flying
Andy Baillie: Fantastic time. Hospitality unmatched. Keep going, we need this.
A gathering of old
“Hooyeas!!!”. I’ll be back, thanks for a
great time! JK
Anonymous; JK set a
new standard for low life he passed gas which would have made Wayne Norrad
proud. He was voted the most likely to
succeed Norrad as the all time champion.
Mac and Jill: Great party with great friends. Thank you both so very much for the wonderful
hospitality. You guys do so much for the
“FAMILY’. We sure hope you never close
the bar!!! Love you guys, Steve and
Randy & Lisa
Schlotman: What a great time! Drinking, Dancing, Stories, Food and Football.
What a great family to belong to. Mac & Jill have a lot of love to have all
us ornery people in their home. Love you all. Can’t wait for the next get
together to see everyone again! Kiss Kiss to all you guys from Lisa J
Floyd Smith in
email to Bill Frankenberger re: Secret Fund Campaign: I think this is a great idea. Mac has done a lot to get our community
together over the years. I have spent
quite a lot of time over the last three years fishing and partying with
him. I will say he has given 200% to his
self proclaimed mission and will challenge anybody out there to say that they
have done half as much. It has often
been said that CCT’ers are the unsung hero’s of the battle. Mac is the unsung hero of the CCT’ers
I would like to
remind everyone of another very special person that has played an indispensable
roll in all of this. JILL, has gone far
above and beyond what would be expected and has been the unsung hero behind
Mac. She deserves a round of recognition
I don’t know if
your plans include any kind of book or picture presentation, if so I have a few
pictures to submit.
Unfortunately, I am
not sure if I will be able to make it to Mac’s get together in Sept. I am still playing catch up with my vacation
time from work and I need to save up for the next Reunion in Florida. The
time I was off for my surgery put me in the hole and I have to make it up. I may have to go AWOL for a few days.
If you need help
with anything let me know and I will try to assist. My check is in the mail……………Floyd
(Floyd went AWOL
and attended the Open House!)
