Former PJ Tim Ryan has died

Just got word that my old team mate Tim Ryan has passed from a massive heart attack. He was great. Tactically, few were his match. Blue skies.

I seem to have forgotten how to edit my own posts. Anyway,

Just a quick note to let you know what kind of a guy Tim was. Tim broke his leg on the combat jump into Panama. He crawled to the end of the runway to put down the beacon for the follow-on aircraft. Through some foul-up they ignored his beacon and put the packages in the trees.

Is this the same Tim Ryan associated with Pro Med Kits?

RIP!

Stay safe.
