Hi, AFVN'ers and friends --
On this date 14 years ago (1999) the AFVN group on Yahoo began. We have been finding AFVN'ers and friends of AFVN ever since, and have had quite a few reunions that have resulted from the renewed friendships.
It all started among an unholy trimvarate -- Jack Leigh (JO1, USN, 71-72), Terry Oliver, JO2, USN, 71-72), and Bob Morecook (SP5, USA, 72-73). And from there of course, it has gone down hill [up hill if you prefer].
Welcome home guys and ladies and to all of our friends who served overseas.
Thanks to all of you who supported us stateside and elsewhere as well.
Best Wishes, Bob Morecook
