The Golden Rule applies. If you can live within those guidelines, Welcome Aboard!
Spammers, trolls, and flamers will not last long here, your time would be better spent looking for a board where those traits are acceptable. HB Administration
Phil was not a member of the Bench but he was one of mine.
He had Three Air Medals and a Purple Heart. Those of us close to him used to kid him about where he got hit during a 122mm rocket attack on DaNang. He got bracketed by a pair of rockets as he was hauling ass to the nearest bunker. Caught a piece of shrapnel in the ass.
I was in the hotel room with Poacher and crew Saturday night when I received a text from another one of my people that I was not even aware he had my phone number. It was a simple text --- SSgt Fulks has died.
I knew he was in bad shape. Even had to have assistance in walking. I have no idea cause of death at this time.
Rest in Peace Philip because you served your time in hell.
