My pleasure Diane. I enjoy doing this. Doing this blog, I have learned to know many of you that I had only heard of before. We all walked the same turf, just at different times is all. With this lock down, I have more time on my hands too, enabling me to do more postings.

Thank you for the continuing contact with you and all the friends and relatives of the terrific people of the Dunseith community now and in the past.
The recent post from Marshall Await, a close neighbor of many years ago, gave me a terrific boost of morale with his comments regarding the war time days of Vietnam. Marshall and his fellow fighting men are the ones deserving special accolades. We who flew and may have been of some help, regard our troops on the ground in contact with the enemy, as being the true heroes of the conflict, and STILL. DO !!!!!
Marshall, my friend and fellow Dunseith neighbor, I thank you for your comments and wish you all the possible comfort and joy you and your fellow fighting men deserve. The missions I flew in support of you warriors was more satisfying than the other interdiction missions that made up my tours spent in either Viet Nam or Thailand. As in World War II, Dunseith men served wherever they were ordered, doing what they were trained to do. You and I were fortunate enough to serve, AND survive!!!!!!!!!
I will be 90 later this year, and in good health. Hearing from/about you makes me feel great. I thank you for your thoughts and memories, and I salute you for your GALLANT SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY.
I am proud to know you, Marshall.

Thanks Gary, Marlys H., Greg L. and Dunseith Alumni Friends,
In reading the many comments about Reverend David Hayes I see, we are more alike than we are different.
There are times in life, we are blessed to encounter a person whose presence touches, warms and fills us with the profound sense of PEACE.
It is rather an unexplainable safe feeling, isn’t it? Which brings to my mind the song made popular by Alabama.
“Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us, Sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours To show us how to live…..…
