Seajay, It appears that you have a corner on the market for vets. Good for you and thanks for getting things started. Just wanted you and others to know that the USAF is 'on-board' and ready to relate a few war stories. Spent 30 years in the USAF and enjoyed every minute of it and could do another 30 if given the opportunity and a little more energy. Been places like Iwo Jima, Thailand, Japan and Korea and numerous state-side bases. Would love to hear from others who have been stationed on Iwo Jima in the 50's.
