Intel Memorial

This morning, the Air Force training contingent at the Defense Language Institute, Foreign Language Institute, at the Presidio of Monterey CA turned out in formation to ceremonially open a memorial to fallen intelligence personnel.

The room right behind the memorial was occupied by my best buddy Alan 30 years ago. He was DAWG Flight Commander and I used to hang out there many a morning and afternoon.

    Beautiful. Sometimes I truly miss my days in uniform and as much as ceremonys seemed to be a pain at the time, (sometimes), it was good to be part of a greater unit than the every day duty.

    God, I remember standing Monday formations there. Bill Defleuri used to play his accordion during them (his room was on the second floor, right above where the memorial is now).

    And moving all the classroom furniture up the hill to the new classrooms across the street! (Was the only time I wore fatigues while there.
