Jason's a good guy. I met him at Sun-N-Fun in ...I guess...1999 or 2000, when he was working at Brantly in Vernon. When he finished the Warrant Officer Entry Course, he had a waiting period before starting Flight Training, so he had a lot of spare time with nothing to do.
He drove from Daleville, AL up to my house in Cartersville, GA to look over my ship after my refurbishment. I wanted a trained eye to see if they saw any problems I missed or created.

He actually hovered it in my tiny confined yard to see how it felt. He and another Warrant Officer (Joel Gooch) are the ONLY people who ever flew my ship after it became mine.
I wish Jason much happiness and success in his civillian job, whatever that may be.

Jason, that looks like a 4TH ID patch on your shoulder. I was in 4ID, HHB DivArty S-2 for 2 1/2 years in the mid 80's. Several of the helicopter pictures on my one online album are from Carson, and Reforger '85 in Germany, still with 4ID.
