A Message From Tom Privett:

   What it means to have an Airborne brother. Our dear friend and brother, Dave Fair, was in a bad car wreck and taken to the hospital. Wondering how he was going to get home first, and then how he was going to get to work with no car now.
Well his Airborne brother Mike Johnson went to the hospital, gave him a ride home and later helped him find a car to drive. This is what you get when you have association with the Airborne brotherhood. Thanks again to Mike Johnson, the whole chapter is proud of you!

Our Friend and Fellow Chapter Member Jim Quisenberry was interviewed by
Brian Albrecht of the Plain Dealer sharing his remembrance of his service in
Vietnam. Excellent interview Jim, thanks for sharing.
