I belive that it is Dale Barnes. But I would not swear to it. No I haven't been in contact with anybody from those days.

GySgt Glover ("Acting" SgtMaj) and I didn't get along well. I tried taking R&R and he stopped it saying I was too short. So I got to looking around and found a directive that allowed me to take 7 days In-Country Leave. I put in for it and got it. Dale Barnes took me down to the Flight Line and showed me how to do the Pre-Flight check and send the plane out of the revetments on a flight...and, bring it back into the revetment and park. It just so happened, one afternoon I sent Colonel Vitali's plane out and taxied him back into his parking space when he came back. I saluted him as he deplaned and walked past me, and he gave me a funny look. I heard from someone <I forget who> was in the CO Hut when Colonel Vitali came in. He said, "SgtMaj...I thought Wilson was on leave.." Glover replies that I was. Colonel Vitali informed him I was "down at the Flight Line working. Cancel his leave!" Glover <I was told> got a big grin on his face....I guess he thought he had me. Colonel Vitali called in to Glover again and said "Just give him that week OFF". If I thought Glover and I didn't get along well before, we surely didn't after that. Had a lot of fun down on the flight line. Also, got a lot of work done in Service Records. I took all the enlisted files down on the line some nights when I wasn't able to sleep, and took care of things in the record books for the guys that worked nights. But, I REALLY enjoyed checking out and retrieving the aircraft. Gool ol' Dale Barnes. I thank him for that!
Hope you are doing well wherever you are, Rocky. Semper Fi...... Gary Wilson
