Tributes and Comments by Squadron Members
I have to add another "well done" to the accolades you'll receive. As I previously stated, I was amazed and impressed at your tenacity and devotion to the task. During your search for the capsule I feared that it might be all in vain and what a sad fate it would be to come up empty. I ride a motorcycle a lot and bikers frequently comment that its not the destination that counts but rather the journey itself. I think that attitude accurately describes your search for the capsule. It really doesn't matter all that much what is in there; nor what kind of condition it is in. What matters most is the story of your search--it should make a marvelous addition to the history and lore of "Fighting Photo". I'm sure Ken Jack will do it up in fine style on the squadron website. I'm proud to have been part of your squadron. Sierra Hotel!! Norm Green [webmaster: Norm was a VFP-62 pilot 1966-68]

Right photo: More sheets that are readable. Is that a Florida bug on the lower-left corner?
Left Photo: Looks like the draft from my book after the dog got it.
