Old PJ in Santa Fe

I thought some of you might've known him in Vietnam. Harry Chalmers (I think I got the name right). Owns a physical therapy practice where I'm a patient. I don't think he treats patients anymore, himself.

He's got citations on the wall for two Air Medals and a DFC, so that caught my attention; and a certificate from the Order of the Jolly Green Giant. I don't recall what squadron he was from; but I asked one of the staff if their boss was an old PJ, and they answered affirmative.

I just thought someone might have known him, and might like to know where he is.

Fly safe, those of you still doing so.

Have him reach out to the "Horses for Heroes" program at the Crossed Arrows Ranch just outside Santa Fe and ran by one of our members. Might be a good fit.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

Sharky, if I get to meet up with him, I'll try to bring that up. I agree it sounds like it has good potential.

John, I kinda figured you'd know who he is. Thanks for linking that.
