Johnny Cash passing brought back a few memories of squadron parties during the 60's with his music playing in the background.
Also the 94' Pensacola reunion when the " monsoon" forced the beach party inside. As I recall Roger Herman was attempting to quiet the group so he could complete a "phone patch". At one point he got so frustrated with the rowdy crowd he offered to "step outside" with anyone who would not "shut the F*** up". Just before the connection was completed a voice from the back of the room yelled "better not be that a**-hole Clinton".
Anyway the phone call was from Johnny Cash thanking us for our service and talking about his recording of Roll On, that described the Viet Nam experience as it affected many of us. Semper Fi Johnny............We will miss you.
