A surprising email arrived in my inbox last week from A/1C Larry Avenson. He and I served in the 72nd A&E Squadron at the same time and lived within hailing distance of each other in Isabela, Puerto Rico while serving at Ramey AFB. We even shared the same landlord, Juan Mendez.
Larry, after reading my blog posts on the Ramey AFB Historical Association site, began searching his fifty-year-old records. He hit pay dirt and sent me copies of Special Order 35, dated 8 December 1964, indicating both of us were flight crew debriefers on both B-52 and KC-135 aircraft.
I’m pleased beyond words.
