James is in the VA Hospital in Oklahoma City. He was having trouble breathing last week so his daughter took him to the Hospital. He had stopped breathing for about 20 min and slipped into a coma and had to be put on life support. Since then he has has two cardiac arrest and has been delclared brain dead. She is there now making the decision to pull the plug. She will call me later and update me...

They plan on having him cremated and burried at the Ft Gibson National Cemetery here near Muskogee. I'll keep you posted. I will be at the burial no plans have been made yet. If anyone needs to talk to me my number is 918-441-0412.

Just signed on to this site and was reading the emails. Wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday. I was attached to your unit working with ASA in the 409th RRD. I don't know if anyone saw it, but my track was called "The Outcasts" for various reasons. Take care, Randy.

I talked to Herman Blair's wife last night & she said he is improving a lot.He was in the hospital in Bristol, TN & they thought he was going to get moved to an Atlanta hospital but that didn't work out. He got moved to a facility in Duffield, Va. (which is a lot closer to home than Atlanta) & they are working with him & she said helping him a lot. He can receive cards & letters from his friends & his address is
HERMAN BLAIR

DUFFIELD, VA 24244
He is in the Rehab section but don't know his room number.
EVERYBODY HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Update on Pete Echon Past Website Manager

Received e-mail from Becky, they have moved Pete to a private room now; Hes about the same, other than sleeping a lot.

He would like to go home for Christmas, but his level of oxygen is to high to be safe at home.

Please keep Pete and Becky in your prayers, and if you have an extra Christmas card this year, Im sure they would appreciate it.
