David O'Connor, I sure do remember you! Talented young man. Yes indeed, I do remember you. I knew DD from the Brinks days also and Herb Manchester....remember Herbie? Dan never turned his infamous ire on me but I saw him unleash his fury on others...well I take that back.. It was on Panorama. I was doing the news my first week in-country. He introduced the news and I waited for him to point his finger at me. Finally, he realized I was waiting for a cue and gave me the bird. After I left air, he insisted I should be bright enough when to start without being told. And Berk. I liked him. He was a quiet sort of man who minded his own business and kept us on the air. There was a quiet dignity about Berk. I never particularly liked the Panorama format which we trundled over from the Brinks and when Commander Wentz told us to redo the programming, I dumped it.
