You got the rank right, Dave.  I made E-4 when I was overseas. By the way, I loved that bike.  Our apartment was just across Barksdale Blvd. and maybe a mile from where I worked so I rode to work almost every day.

We'll, the hairline was receding at that point.  When I was overseas, the hair was really put my for the military. We were working 12 hour shifts, 28 days straight and the three days off.  We then shift to the opposite 28 day shift.   Haircuts weren't a big priority. We were busy keeping B-52s loaded with bombs.

Gosh Ron, Except that you're holding your daughter, and the insignia on the pocket, that could be a picture of me when I was in the Air force. That slim build, the 3 stripes and the sun glasses look familiar. Not like that anymore. :D Boeing was still testing the B 52's across the runway during my time in the Air force.

Ron, I hope your daughter has a copy of that picture. It will probably mean as much to her as it does to you. Just a thought, you could try a modern day re-enactment of that photo, bike could turn into a motorcycle ? Sorry, that’s just how my mind kinda works.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
