20 JAN 13

From another time ...
September of 1986 ...
I was working for the USAF at Tempelhof Central Airport
in Berlin, Germany as a LN civilian.
I was a computer operator assigned to the 1946th Information
Systems Squadron (formerly the 1946th Comm Squadron). 
The editor of the base newspaper, The Tabulator, approached
me about writing a short op-ed piece for the upcoming POW/MIA
Day issue. She asked me because I was the only Vietnam vet that
she knew personally. I agreed. Over the next couple of days, I wrote
and edited, wrote and edited, wrote ...

And this is how the final product turned out:

PS: They misspelled my name ... but everybody did. Still happens today.
