Old scroll Alphabot, 2/75 approaching the final ORP

Any of you heroes who served with Wild Bill Watson, A 2/75, late seventies , to'80,'81. I just found out this week that Bill is in hospice care at home with his son Christian in Westcliffe, Colorado. He has inoperable brain cancer, not long left on this earth, few weeks to a few months at most. Anyhoo, Wild Bill and I were 5-79. A crazier man I have never known, and a real good dude! Just thought I should post this info here.

Thanks for posting this. Way before my time but I'm sure some on here know him. Do you mind if I share this elsewhere?

Certainly not,Sharky, share away! A group of the guys who served with him on farcebook are notified and a few of the guys in Colorado are linking up at his pad this weekend , I believe. I can't make it out there. It bums me out not being able to motor whenever I want!

Sorry to hear this Bill my prayers are with you and yours. Aco back then was a place and home of Giants and Bill was right there amongst them. It's been a very long time and quite a few have passed but we will never forget them. All of us Alphabots had the world by the tail.
God Speed and God Bless
