Scott and Barb, Summer 2013 – Near Dallas, Texas

It was 53 years ago today, 23 June 1962, Barb and I took our vows in Coos Bay, Oregon. I was serving my second hitch in the United States Air Force, and stationed at Beale AFB, California. Prior to the above e mentioned date many weekend trips were made from Marysville to Coos Bay, always managing to be on the flight line as a combat aircraft maintainer by 0800 hours every Monday morning. The trip was 500 miles each way – before the days of freeways – in my 1953 Chevrolet. I went without sleep from Thursday night to Monday night.

It’s been a great experience. Given the opportunity, I would do it all over again.
