Great post Hamp..

Never had a lot of dealings with them except back in 67-68 when we did the whole SE Asia thing.. At that time (pre GPS) all navigation was done thru "Loran stations".. and some of these were WAY remote and most (maybe all) were maned by CG.. Pretty cool they had WWII era flying boats PB-4's and the crews would fly in about once a month to get provisions.. Neat group of guys and gals who as you say get little recognition..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
