THE COLONEL SPEAKS
This document has been prepared at the urging of my family. They have
heard bits and pieces of the happenings during our life and wish to be told
the whole story. Memory has a way of playing tricks but I will scratch my
head a few times and try to get the facts correct. Don’t be too critical
of the format. I know that it jumps around but chronology has never been one
of my strong points.
I will include a few photos here and there and they may add to your
interest. This document will never be finished until I decide to “FLY”
again to unknown skies. Lets hope that will be a long way off.
Millie and I never did get “RICH” but we are “RICH” in that we have
a wonderful family and we have been given time to enjoy them and they to
know their grandparents. For this, we are justly happy and proud. May they
continue, as we have, and live a long and wonderful life.
Enjoy this book and remember that no one is perfect and that it was a very
enjoyable time for both of us.
We love you all
