Del and Eric : OUTSTANDING support for our American hero's. This thread just warms my heart. Thanks for the post.
Cheers, but just for the record he's a Brit (friendly inter-service rivalry and all that :) )

Makes no difference Del. You two gentlemen did a great thing for a military hero.

Ya Del, makes no difference to me either, we love our Brits also, after all that is where I originally came from. ;) Goat herders for the King in the 13/1400.  ;) :)

My grandmother's maiden name was Livingstone, ancestry DNA says I am 30% British Isles. If I was going to war I would rather have a Brit or Aussie beside me than anyone from any another country, no rivalry here.

I spent a little time at Burtonwood Army Depot near Manchester and was treated better by the locals then at any place I have ever been on my travels for Uncle Sam. In 69 they still remembered us helping them out a few years earlier and loved us for it.

Eric, is that Gil Malingaro (spelling?) who had a very bad head wound? If so I had the honor to shoot with him and his sister at a shoot in Indiana. I have the book written about him and his crew that got blown up.

I met Gil at the Classic a year or 2 ago. Nothing is too good for our(coalition) military vets.  :OK
