Default Headed for Raton New Mexico this weekend

I'll be at the NRA Whittington Center this long weekend with
Colonel RK Brown (SOF magazine) and some other old Army buddies. If by chance anyone of you are going? Give me a holler. Maybe we can meet up, I'll have plenty of cold beer.

I've known the Col. since Jesus wore sandal's (well almost)

He's on the Whittington Board of Directors and every time he attends a meeting a few of us gather with him to reminisce drink beer, eat red meat, shoot guns etc. Fun Times for now Old Dudes!!1

Well made it back in one piece, 10 hour drive, did a lot of shooting guns and bullhockey. This weekend was the mega fund raiser for Whittington so it was a great atmosphere.

Colonel Brown signed (autographed) many of his book (his memoirs) he has led quite the interesting life. Gun in one hand camera in the other. I highly recommend that you read a copy. Especially for you older enlisted who knew of him and his magazine.

Hope I can order it in time before it sells out. He has been excerpting a few parts here and there in the magazine.

Dr. Glad it arrived.

Colonel is one solid Hombre', I'm fortunate to call him friend / "SIR"

When I make it up to your neck of our fair State I'll be sure to "pop smoke" for extraction to the local water hole.
