- Got to tell you, as an old jumper, active from 1962 through 1980,
C-3917 and ASO 17, I think that you are doing a wonderful job with this
well presented and researched site.
I was Leon Riche's head jumpmaster and pilot at Southern Parachute
Center in Hammond, Louisiana ( moved to Covington, Louisiana and closed,
I think, in late 80's ) for quite a few years. I also operated a few
small centers in Florida in the 70's.
Well, again, great work and thanks.

- Another good issue - - little by little it comes together

Aahhh, I'm infamous at last.
Please tell your spell checker that
S*K*ratch is spelled with a *K*
when it refers to me.
S*c*ratch with a *c* is a new jumper down in Texas
unless it refers to the other S*c*ratch who was in
the Australian Army in 1976 when I went down there
to help their 4 way team get started.
Nice news letter :-)
- Skratch Garrison
- Thanks for the info. This is very enlightening.
- Mike Perry
- I have been enjoying reading the history.
I was 18 when I started jumping in 1983.
This latest posting brings back some old memories.
One name on the list, Jack Bergman, was USPA treasurer. I worked for him at
the Nationals in Muskogee.
I also saw him the night he died. By coincidence at a funeral.

- Thank you again, Jan - - appreciate going back a day or two to recall those
days of yesteryear

- Most all of my other favorite weekly mailings have sent the
obligatory, "Due to the horrible tragedy...", as a reason not to do their
mailing. Needless to say, the comedy ones were right in doing so. It
wouldn't have been appropriate. With mailings like yours, informational by
nature (with a little humor thrown in), they're a needed 'normality'. The
more we all continue to spite the scum that did this by continuing our
'normal' way of life as much as possible (until we can get around to
wiping the 'SCUM' from the face of the earth), the better. You
did an excellent job of finding the perfect blend of things that were
relevant to the hijacking (like how we made it so darned easy for them
with our lack of security) and things that weren't. KEEP UP THE GOOD
WORK!!! L8R, muscat
P.S. God Bless America!
