"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Flying Tigers Attention!! I would like everyone of you to join me in wishing all the best to our Squadron Leader and CAG. As he has been a great influence and leader to many of us here in The Flying Tigers as well as aboard the Raven. The Major is a great pilot and leader. While he will not be completely gone his leadership will be missed. Thank you Major for all of your time. I still look forward to recycling some toasters with you very soon. Good luck and Gods speed. We're Flying, They're Dying. Flying Tigers forever! SSWA!

"Attention Tigers Attention"

It is with deep regret that I give you this message this morning.

I have a couple things I would like to tell all of you. First of all, we are all doing well after our trip abroad. We arrived on time back in the USA at 5:30 AM on Thanks Giving. We were tired but we stopped off at the nursing home where my dad has been for a while. I stayed in the car with my daughter and my wife went in and Prayed for my Dad and her Mother.

Yesterday I received a call that my Dads condition was getting worse and it was possibly his last day. I spent about 5 hours with him yesterday. Even though he couldn't open his eyes or talk it looked as if he was trying to communicate with us.

I played his favorite music and told him how much I loved him. This morning at about 6:30 AM my Dad passed away.

There was a time in my life that I needed something to keep me busy after re-injuring my back. The BFC helped me get through some tough times when I wasn't able to do anything.

I have made many friendships here and I have met people from around the US and the world. You all know I haven't been on Face Book in quite a while and to be honest, I've pulled away from my duties here as many have done before me.

I never thought this day would come, but I have become more active in other aspects of my life and its time to step down from my leadership positions here at the BFC though I will not quit the club completely.

I would like to relinquish my position as Squadron Leader of the Flying Tigers as well as my position as the Ravens CAG. I will quit the Raven Leadership group but I will stay as a member of all the other groups I have joined.

It truly has been a pleasure serving with all of you and I have had lots of fun scrapping loads of Toasters with you my pilots.

Those of you whom have my E-mail address can always feel free to contact me. I am not jumping into the universe for a long range recon mission, I'm just stepping down from my leadership roles. I wish all of you the very best.

Good Hunting!!!

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

I just wanted to stop by and check in on you Tigers! I hope you all are keeping up on your flight training. Remember to get in on as many CAPS as possible. There is nothing like a good recycling session. Flying TIgers Forever!
