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
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: Mac, Thank You for another year of
SgtMacsBar. Every year more and more of the people I care most about are
slipping away; but, because of you I can keep in contact with those that
are still around. Thank you and Happy New Year. Johnny
Comments about the web site: Would love to hear from Bob Bieber and
Comments about the web site: I am LaMar Eikman's brother. I have suffered
from depression since I was a teen, and I know a great deal about this illness.
I suffered to a much larger degree from the illness than LaMar, and I warned
him repeatedly that Air Force doctors are incompetent.

Comments about the web site: Hey Mac, great job keep up the fine work.
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: life is good .enjoy checking this website

No excuse, great stuff on the web site and awesome opportunity to contact
other controllers. thx again v/r rs...
Comments about the web site: Hey, what does it take to get a beer
Comments about the web site: Enjoyed your meanderings. It's always
good to hear about men that I haven't heard from in many years. I was sorry
to hear about Bill Swope and John Fuller. We served together in CCT at several
places during the 1950's and 1960's.
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

much fun i was going to have. If you will, email me and i want to talk to
you about some of this stuff. thanks zach
Comments about the web site: Awesome site. I went through CCS class
82-3, then over to Clark AB. I was there only from 8/82- 9/83, then I managed
to get myself discharged( not willingly). I don't know if any of the guys
I was with even remember me, but I've never forgotten any of you. The best
group of men it has ever been my priviledge to know. I just want to say hi
and thanks Mac for a great site.
Comments about the web site: Just crusing by to see old friends names
and catch up on what is happening. Those who know me, drop a line, those
who don't know mw, drop a line anyway!! ML
Comments about the web site: OK I'll sign the book.......Mac, I continue
to serve here at McChord celebrating my 22nd year at the squadron. I now
enjoy my life as the ATC Instructor Guru for the unit. Not sure were all
the active duty time went though. Mac, thanks for all the enjoyment and
information you provide through your site. Please continue the great work!
Comments about the web site: After 3 years as the only "CCT guy" at
the 6th SOS, stomping around the jungles of Sri Lanka, Phillipines, Colombia
and a few other places (okay, it was pretty damn fun) I am happy to be back
with my teammates at the 22d STS. Great website Mac, keep it up! BT
Comments about the web site: Don is so glad to keep up with everyone.
This past year he had to go on dialysis for kidney failure due to his diabetis.
This year in a few months in fact he will be getting a kidney from our son.
The wheels are rolling for the process, and after a few more test we think
everything will be a go. Our son is a match. Do keep him in your pray- ers.
Comments about the web site: Great website! I really enjoyed looking
at all the photos, damn everyone is looking old, keep up the good work. We
have quite a few guys down here in Tampa, so if you need anything from us

Comments about the web site: My brother was TSgt John Chapman and
my husband, Kenny, is former First Sgt of the 24th. We met after John's death
and feel God and John had something to do with us meeting. We miss John terribly
and are damn proud of him (always have been). We wish all CCTers and their
families the very best and keep them in our prayers. I love your site! God
Comments about the web site: Think you are doing a great job getting
the news out about the Combat Controllers. I'm the widow of Charles N. Abee
who passed away March 16, 2005. I really did appreciate all the e-mails I
received when Charles went to be with the Lord. The Combat Control group
just became our family. We've been around the world with a lot of them. Spent
about 50 years with most of them that were in the 2nd Aerial Port Sqdn.

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!!!"

Comments about the web site: I am a friend of SSgt Scott Sather. Had
some good memories with the guy, and am glad I found this site. I have put

could provide one I have a class picture I would like to submit from '97
back when Scott and I were in Airman Leadership School. Scott was our class
leader, and was the recipient of the John Levitow award.
