Feliz Navidad y Feliz Ano Nuevo a todos.
50 years ago....Company A, ODA 12, 8th SFG (A), Panama. Resurrecting memories....Spent Christmas day with our TS and his family. They frosted the windows and turned the air conditioner down to make it feel like winter in the mountains of SW Virginia.

May you all stay safe and healthy.

Thank you, JJ. For some reason I thought he might have still been there. I guess I was wrong. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours!
