Got an e-mail from old Navy buddy ex-Blue Angels Flight Leader retired near Guadalajara.Said he had to have 5 operations to repair colon surgery that surgeon screwed up on.Simple first cut developed peritonitis because surgeon was poor seamstress and it leaked.Then took out the colon,washed everything and stuffed it back.He recovered said weather is great but comes to States every 4 months to buy prescription drugs.Tells me half of Toronto lives there in winter and half of Florida in summer.Told him no thanks I'll take Virginia! BTW-Gringoes can't sue Mexican surgeons.
Persh- I came to the aid of what I believed to be an honest underdog "Janel1" who needed help in his attempt to say his feelings.You must read NFI posters to understand the imbalance if you disagree not like this board where I don't fight back they tend to character attack as they resent different opinions.I never run from a fight!
Wealthy-Just finished "Tin Can Sailors" not bad but best book I'm now reading is FAREWELL DARKNESS by Ron Zaczek.Ron is "Crewchief..usmc" on SMBI board,read his posts only about 10 it's a virgin board like Keeweenaw in Winter.Also like FLYBOYS by James Bradley & GIVEN UP FOR DEAD [Heroic Stand at Wake Island] by Bill Sloan.One other is BOYD [Fighter Pilot Who Changed The Art of War].All are non-fiction that's all I read. Zack's book gives you a feel of a Marine's life in Vietnam 1966-68,Terrific realistic telling by a guy who lived it! BRAVO ZULU Zack!
