      I remember inducting him and his crew, making them members of Popasmoke in Reno! It was a great night for all!! Sad ending for the Captain and the rest, but they were doing what Marines do, defending freedom! God Bless....

        I hate it happened too. Believe its still December, at least here in the center of the states. Its been raining very hard since midnight. Its all going to the northeast too. Wether they want it, need it, or not, believe they will get more of the frozen type by the time it gets there. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.
