Terry, I think the correct order of those I recognize is what you've listed below:

I wish I knew how to "edit" these pages better. If I screw up, let me know...or maybe you can repair my mistakes.

Some of these guys I can't remember. Krach's first name was "Will". I want to say that Sgt. Moses' first name was "Jerry", but I may have him mixed up with a guy who used to be a catcher for the Red Sox. Sgt. Torres' first name was "Roman" (I used to think it was "Ramon" but he corrected me). Brown (seated) I always knew by his nickname "Rap". I wish I could be more help Edited: Bill Tower

Thanks, Bill, we will leave your notes like they are and clean them up later. Maybe someone will come along and add to it. You sure and Hell ought to know who you are... right? <grin> Actually, I think you had said something about being next to Krach and I have to check why I wrote that down wrong, probably a mistake made 40 years ago versus now... I had hoped I got better! Note: Terry Wheeler

None of us has gotten 'better', Terry....Heck, I'm glad to be walking around upright and still able to remember my name (at least 9 out of 10 times that I'm asked). Note: Bill Tower
