Is that a new type of gyro?

Keep in touch, Joe.

Pat, Just an update. My wife and son took me down to my shop yesterday and was great! It gave me a big lift to work on my project. The best thing was I didn't cut off any fingers.

I heard from Spitfire today. He's still in Cambodia and talking about a reunion for A-362 next year.

Is Spitifire in contact with Tommy Daniels? Tommy is also working in Cambodia. I ran into Tommy a couple years ago at the Arlington dedication to our Khmer, Hmong, Montagnard Counterparts.

Keep me posted on the "reunion" please.

TJ, that post is 2 years old. I haven't heard a peep from Joe since then. Or DJ for that matter.

Just checking in.

I speak to Spitfire frequently on Facebook. I also spoke with him last month while he was in conus for medical care but seems to be well. He lives in Long Hai with his female posse at the local coffee house. PSM wanted to know about my gyro project. I am having gearbox issues at present so I have new ones on order. I used Honda motorcycle gearboxes but they are hard to turn freely which require higher speeds to turn the rotor system.
