Thoughts About the 58th: I had the good fortune to be able to fly most of the way around this globe, then complete the final leg by boat. I made some very good friends, lost some, and still wonder what may have happened to others. Am happy to say, I am still in contact with several by e-mail, correspondence, telephone and by ham radio.
Comments: I would not have wanted to miss all of those experiences for a million dollars, BUT, would not want to relive them again.
